Ann Hampton Callaway's Linda Ronstadt Songbook

A tribute can’t do much better than a ringing endorsement from the original—and Linda Ronstadt loves Tony-nominee Ann Hampton Callaway. “It makes me feel good to know someone of Ann Hampton Callaway’s caliber is singing these wonderful songs,” said Ronstadt.

The multi-platinum-selling pop and jazz singer-songwriter presents a romantic and rousing night of songs and stories honoring the queen of country rock, including classics like “You’re No Good,” “Desperado,” and more.
