Prior to the ceremony, the "Jesus, Take the Wheel" singer posted a photo with Ronstadt on Instagram. She wrote:

"I was so honored to finally meet the phenomenal #LindaRonstadt, a true artist and versatile vocalist who excelled at performing all kinds of music. I hope I made you proud, Linda."

In her post, which already amassed over 195,000 likes as of this writing, Underwood included the hashtags "KC Honors," "Blue Bayou," "When Will I Be Loved" and "Inspired."

A lot of fans added their thoughts via comments. "Two legends! Two amazing and versatile voices!" said one commenter. Another wrote that Ronstadt is one of the "greatest of all times."

As reported by Pop Culture, Before Underwood made her big appearance, Don Henley, the founding member of the Eagles, told the crowd just how significant Ronstadt's impact on music is.

Throughout her career, Ronstadt has earned several awards, including Grammy Award, American Music Award, Academy of Country Music award, and Emmy Award.

Ronstadt became one of the most well known and most regarded female artists of the twentieth century, standing her ground in an industry that had been, for the most part, run by men, said Henley.

Meanwhile, in addition to Underwood, country music star Trisha Yearwood also honored Ronstadt's legacy.

Yearwood, who rose to fame with her 1991 debut single "She's in Love with the Boy," performed "You're No Good" and "Don't Know Much."

Throughout her career, Ronstadt has earned several awards, including Grammy Award, American Music Award, Academy of Country Music award, and Emmy Award.

Many of her albums have been certified gold, platinum or multiplatinum in the United States and globally.
