Stevie attended the 29th annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Thursday night. She joined an all-star cast of musicians to pay tribute to the great Linda Ronstadt, one of this year’s inductees.
Stevie took the lead on Ronstadt’s 1977 hit “It’s So Easy,” while her “backup supergroup” consisting of Sheryl Crow, Glenn Frey, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, and Carrie Underwood sang along.
Stevie said that hearing the song (which was originally recorded by Buddy Holly in 1958) in high school inspired her to be a singer.
Afflicted with Parkinson’s disease, Linda Ronstadt chose not attend the ceremony.
