Listen to Carrie Underwood on iHeartRadio

Carrie Underwood is among those celebrating Linda Ronstadt's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. 

The country star launched the tribute to the new Rock Hall member with a performance of "Different Drum," the 1967 Stone Poneys single that marked Linda's first hit.  Carrie also joined Emmylou Harris and Bonnie Raitt on "Blue Bayou," a crossover hit that peaked in the top five on the pop, adult contemporary, and country singles charts back in 1977. 

The segment also featured Sheryl Crow and the Eagles' Glenn Frey singing "You're No Good" before Stevie Nicks joined the group for "It's So Easy" and "When Will I Be Loved." 

Frey, who before the Eagles was in Ronstadt's backing band, also took care of her induction.  Linda is battling Parkinson's disease, and didn't attend the event. 

The Rock Hall's 29th annual Induction Ceremony took place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York Thursday night.
