Her kids will be joining the tour this summer, giving Ronstadt an opportunity to share the music she loves with her fans while remaining a dedicated parent.

An incredibly versatile artist, Ronstadt has embraced a range of sounds from country-folk to rock, new wave, Broadway, pop and Latin. However varied her music, though, Ronstadt has had continued success.
