Wyatt, 16, and Levi, 13, joined their mom as she received the special career honor on Friday night
Sheryl Crow had her No. 1 fans by her side as she celebrated a major career milestone.
The singer-songwriter, 61, was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in a special ceremony on Friday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. In honor of the occasion, her two sons, Wyatt, 16, and Levi, 13, made a rare red carpet appearance to support her.
The kids looked all grown up as they posed for photos alongside their famous mom, both stylishly dressed in classic black suits, white button-up shirts and sneakers. Crow looked equally well-turned out in a black one-shoulder dress with a cut-out accent at the hip.
The "Soak Up the Sun" singer was honored alongside several other music legends including Missy Elliott, Chaka Khan and Willie Nelson. She opened the show by performing a duet with Olivia Rodrigo of her 1996 hit “If It Makes You Happy” and was later inducted by her friend Laura Dern.
Crow adopted Wyatt as a newborn in 2007, followed by Levi in 2010. She told PEOPLE in 2017 that being their mother far surpassed all of her many career accolades. "Adopting my boys — that’s just been the biggest everlasting event that has informed everything — and really for the better," she said at the time.
She also said she believes the three were meant to be a family. "God put us together. They know how blessed I am to get to be their mommy," she told Good Housekeeping of her kids.
Earlier this year, Crow revealed that both of her sons have musical talent like their mom — but said that, as of now, they don't have aspirations to follow in her footsteps. Still, she is making sure they keep up with their music lessons nonetheless.
"I don't know that either one of them really wants to do that, but they're both musical, and I'm one of those obnoxious parents who's like, 'You have to take piano. Do not argue with me about it,' " she told PEOPLE at the MusiCares 2023 Persons of the Year Gala in February.
"But my 15-year-old, he's got a great ear and can play really well," she continued of Wyatt. "I think he will always tinker, but he wants to be a marine biologist, so I don't know how to compete with that because it's such an — I don't even know what they do. So I'm happy for him to go save the reefs. That's what he wants to do."

Crow shared that she enjoys introducing her sons to different music genres, including Motown classics. "They're just like, 'Mom, what is this old music?' But they go around humming it and singing it. My 15-year-old is always like, 'I got sunshine…'" she said earlier this year.
"So, I feel like I'm doing the right thing. I grew up with it and my 15-year-old is a great bass player, and he's learning James Jamerson just like I did."
After publicly stating that 2019's Threads would be her last, Crow recently revealed to PEOPLE that she has a new album ready for release that hasn't been officially announced. She teased more details about the project at Friday night's Hall of Fame ceremony.
"I'm really excited about it. I said I'd never make a record again and I wound up with a bunch of songs that I wanted to just put out," she told PEOPLE, noting that she decided she didn't want to produce the album herself so she called up her producer friend Mike Elizondo.
"It was, literally, like hiring the most incredible film director. He just, one after another, made these incredible small movies," Crow continued. "It's all stuff that I feel like is really pertinent to what's happening right now. The whole thing started with a song about AI, and the album is called Evolution, which is about that."
"I hope people like it. I love it," she added.
