Martina McBride just announced big plans to honor one of the greatest vocalists of all time YouTube

Martina McBride is paying tribute to one of her favorite singers in a big way.

She’ll join several other superstars to perform a Linda Ronstadt song at the annual “Grammy Salute to Music Legends” concert in Los Angeles. The show tapes Saturday, April 23 and will air on PBS’s “Great Performances” later this year.

As you can see from this 2011 ACM Awards special, Martina clearly knows her way around the Ronstadt catalog. Here she is doing a bang-up job on “When Will I Be Loved” with a little help from Little Big Town.

Martina has also covered Linda’s hits “Silver Threads and Golden Needles” and “Blue Bayou” over the course of her career.
