Carrie Underwood + More Country Stars Pay Tribute to Linda Ronstadt in Upcoming Broadcast
Carrie Underwood was part of an all-star line-up that paid tribute to Linda Rondstadt at the recent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony, and now fans will be able to catch all the performers in action.
HBO has announced plans to air the 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Saturday (May 31) at 9PM ET. Underwood joined fellow country artists Emmylou Harris and Sheryl Crow, as well as Stevie Nicks, Bonnie Raitt and Glenn Frey in honoring the country and rock legend, who is battling Parkinson's disease.
The eclectic mix of artists sang some of Ronstadt's biggest hits, including 'Different Drum,' 'Blue Bayou,' 'You're No Good,' 'It's So Easy' and 'When Will I Be Loved.'
Ronstadt was diagnosed with Parkinson's last year, but admits she may have begun experiencing symptoms as far back as eight years ago. The illness has unfortunately robbed her of the ability to sing.
“No one can sing with Parkinson’s disease,” she concedes. “No matter how hard you try." Ronstadt adds that she “can’t sing a note” anymore.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will air on several HBO channels. A complete listing is available here.
