    After forty years, John Hiatt remains one of America’s most respected and influential singer-songwriters today with the Los Angeles Times hailing that, “(Hiatt) writes the funniest sad songs – and the saddest funny songs – of just about anybody alive.” His songs have been covered by artists as diverse as Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt (“Thing Called Love”), Buddy Guy, Emmylou Harris, the Neville Brothers, Rosanne Cash (the #1 country hit, “The Way We Make A Broken Heart”), the Jeff Healey Band (“Angel Eyes”), Jewel, Willie Nelson, Steve Earle and Linda Ronstadt.

    He earned a Grammy nomination for his album Crossing Muddy Waters, and B.B. King and Eric Clapton shared a Grammy for their album Riding With The King, the title track from which was a Hiatt composition. In 2007, John Hiatt was honored with his own star on Nashville’s Walk of Fame, and his legacy was even further cemented in 2008 with an Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting and his induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
