When Bonnie Raitt won a phenomenal four Grammys in 1990, it came as overdue recognition for an artist who had been breaking down barriers of gender and genre since the early Seventies. 

Her feel for the blues was evident on her first album, Bonnie Raitt (1971), and though she’s explored different kinds of material over the years — including pop, rock and balladry — a serious rooting in the blues has remained evident in her work.

Then, in 2012, Raitt released her first album in seven years, Slipstream. She issued the album on her own label, Redwing Records, and it sold more than a quarter-million copies and won a Grammy for Best Americana Album. Over the course of her career, Raitt has won 10 Grammys and been inducted in to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Rolling Stone magazine ranked her at Number 50 in its list of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time and at Number 89 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.

Bonnie Raitt is bringing her Slipstream Tour to Caesars Circus Maximus Theater on Saturday, November 23rd, and, Lite Rock wants to give you tickets!
