Congratulations to new Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member Linda Ronstadt!
Carrie Underwood, Emmylou Harris, and Bonnie Raitt performed the Roy Orbison song that was also a huge hit for Linda Ronstadt, “BLUE BAYOU,” to honor her at the 29th annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
The Orbison ties run deep with these ladies. Bonnie Raitt performed with an all star lineup for Roy Orbison & Friends: A Black & White Night. Emmylou Harris and Roy Orbison share a Grammy for their song “That Loving You Feeling Again.” Carrie Underwood sang another Orbison smash-hit, “Crying,” in her American Idol days.
