Country superstar Carrie Underwood is one of country music's most diverse performers, and rightfully so--especially when her musical influences range from everything from hard rock to pop to traditional. As part of this year's Rock Hall Of Fame induction ceremony, the powerhouse will salute the latest crop of inductees.

Taking place April 10 in New York City, Underwood will be joined by many other performers, including Chris Martin, Glenn Frey, Michael Stipe, Questlove, Stevie Nicks, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen, Peter Asher, Emmylou Harris, Tom Morello and Sheryl Crow.

This year's inductees into the Rock Hall are: Peter Gabriel, Daryl Hall and John Oates, KISS, Nirvana, Linda Ronstadt, Cat Stevens, the E Street Band, Brian Epstein and Andrew Loog Oldham.

Nicks, Raitt, Harris, Crow and Underwood are set to honor Ronstadt for her work in the music industry over the years, as she celebrates this incredibly magnificent milestone. “It’s something I never gave one thought to,” she recently confessed to The LA Times about the new distinction. “It wasn’t on my radar screen. Other people seemed to be way more interested in it than I am. It’s like other awards that have come my way: I’m delighted to get them and I’ve very grateful, but I didn’t work in music for that reason.”

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio has plans to launch a special exhibit this June, featuring the 2014 inductees.

The prestigious ceremony will be broadcast later on HBO on May 31 at 8/7c.
