Linda Ronstadt Tribute: Carrie Underwood Shines During 'Different Drum'

By    |   Tuesday, 03 Jun 2014 10:35 AM

The Linda Ronstadt tribute held over the weekend during the 29th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony made headlines after Carrie Underwood owned the stage in honor of the Grammy Award-winning musician.

Underwood performed Ronstadt's "Different Drum" song, which was released by Hall of Fame inductee and folk-rock band The Stone Poneys in 1967.

The song was an unlikely choice for the "very happily married Underwood because it's about a woman not ready for any person place or thing to try and pull the reins in on her. But she nailed the song," Country Music Television wrote.

Later on, Underwood was joined on stage by Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Nicks, and Sheryl Crow, who performed Ronstadt's "You're No Good."


"It's so cool to look around me and see wonderful strong women . . . I can't believe I'm actually getting to stand on that stage," Underwood said in a pre-taped interview in reference to the all-female tribute.

"Linda Ronstadt has definitely had an impact on my music and has been involved in so many different genres of music, I mean she really is the kind of person that I feel like we all strive for our careers to be like," she continued.

Last year, Ronstadt revealed she had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. The 67-year-old rock 'n' roll icon, whose music career stretched nearly six decades and whose music has been featured in some 80 movies, has since retired and is no longer traveling, Country Music Television reported.

Among the other bands that were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame were Nirvana, Kiss, Hall & Oates, Cat Stevens, Peter Gabriel, and the E Street Band. The induction ceremony was filmed on April 10 in New York City.
