Carrie Underwood, Sheryl Crow + More Perform Linda Ronstadt Tribute at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction [VIDEO]

Carrie Underwood and Sheryl Crow were among the stars who turned out to pay tribute to Linda Ronstadt at her induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at a ceremony in Brooklyn, N.Y. on Thursday night (April 10).

The country superstar and Crow, who released her first full country album last year, joined Stevie Nicks, Bonnie Raitt, Glenn Frey and Emmylou Harris in a musical tribute to Ronstadt, who was one of country and rock’s first true crossover female superstars. She helped pave the way for subsequent generations of female artists with a string of hits including ‘Blue Bayou,’ ‘Silver Threads and Golden Needles’ and ‘When Will I Be Loved.’

Fellow Hall of Famer Frey inducted Ronstadt, his former boss. He played guitar in her band in the early ’70s with Don Henley, Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner before they all departed to form the Eagles.

Ronstadt was unable to attend the induction due to her ongoing battle with Parkinson’s disease, which she revealed in August of 2013 has robbed her of the ability to sing.

The rest of this year’s inductees include Cat Stevens, the E Street Band, Nirvana, Peter Gabriel, KISS, Hall & OatesRolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham, and Beatles manager Brian Epstein.
