VIDEO: Carrie Underwood Joins Legends To Honor Linda Ronstadt’s Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Induction (Bonus-Nirvana)!

Carrie Underwood got to take part in the experience of a lifetime last night at the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony, when she took the stage to honor inductee Linda Ronstadt and kicked off a 5 song tribute to her that featured what the Associated Press called “some royalty of female country rock.” Carrie sang with Sheryl Crow, Emmylou Harris, Stevie Nicks, Bonnie Raitt, and Glenn Frey of The Eagles (who inducted Ronstadt). HBO will air the highlights from the ceremony in a May 31st broadcast. In the meantime we have video of the performances taken by people inside the venue here.
