2019 ROCK HALL PREVIEW: Stevie Nicks

Stevie Nicks will make history Friday when she becomes the first female artist to be inducted twice into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. (In contrast, 22 men can claim that achievement.) She was first inducted in 1998 as a member of Fleetwood Mac.

Along with Lindsey Buckingham, she helped relaunch the band, which in turn led to her solo career, which started in 1981:

"I like my quirky little voice. I mean, I always think I can do better, but I like my voice. I don't have a whole lot of problem with that. And I also love to hear my voice singing with other people. And that's why obviously I sing with other people... is because I love harmony singing. I like my voice."

Stevie has released eight albums. Among her biggest hits are "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around," a duet withTom Petty, as well as "Stand Back," "Edge of Seventeen" and "Leather and Lace," with Don Henley.

Stevie recently told Rolling Stonethat her "biggest hope is that I have opened the door... I’m 70 years old. It took a long time for this to happen, but maybe because of this it won’t take so long for all the other incredibly talented women that I know and that I respect and that I listen to and that I’m friends with."

Stevie will be inducted by One Direction singer Harry Styles.

She is currently on tour with Fleetwood Mac, with a show tonight (Tuesday) in Buffalo. Stevie posted on Facebookthat she is "getting both nervous and excited" about Friday night's induction ceremony at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The rest of the class of 2019 is Def Leppard, Janet Jackson, The Zombies, Roxy Music,The Cure and Radiohead.

This year's ceremony will air on HBO on April 27th.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland has unveiled its Class of 2019 exhibit. Among the items on display are stage gear, costumes, handwritten lyrics and instruments.

In celebration of Stevie's induction, her 2013 documentary, In Your Dreams, is being screened in theaters tonight (Tuesday) and Sunday
