  • John Hiatt

    A highly respected rock musician and songwriter, John Hiatt has played everything from country to New Wave and been covered by the likes of Bob Dylan, Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Willie Nelson, Joan Baez, Iggy Pop, Emmylou Harris, Rosanne Cash, Joe Cocker, Chaka Khan, and Bon Jovi – just to name a few. Born in Indianapolis, Indiana, Hiatt got his start as a songwriter in Nashville in the early ’70s. In 1973, he released his first single, “We Make Spirit,” and wrote the Three Dog Night hit “Sure as I’m Sitting Here.” It wasn’t until 1987 that Hiatt had his first hit album; Bring the Family featured the songs “Have a Little Faith in Me” and “Thing Called Love,” as well as a backing band comprised of Ry Cooder, Nick Lowe, and Jim Keltner. Other Hiatt-penned songs of note include “Tennessee Plates” (featured in the 1991 film Thelma and Louise) and “Angel Eyes,” which the Jeff Healey Band made a hit in 1989. In 2011, Hiatt is showing no signs of slowing down and celebrates the release of his 20th studio album, Dirty Jeans and Mudslide Hymns.
