During the 1970s, Bonnie Lynn Raitt released a series of roots-influenced
albums that incorporated elements of
blues, rock, folk and country. In 1989,
after several years of critical acclaim but little commercial success, she had
a major hit with the album Nick of Time. The following two albums, Luck of
the Draw
(1991) and Longing in Their Hearts (1994), were also multimillion
sellers, generating several hit singles, including "
Something to Talk About",
"
Love Sneakin’ Up on You", and the ballad "I Can’t Make You Love Me"
(with
Bruce Hornsby on piano).

Raitt has received 10 Grammy Awards. She is listed as number 50 in
Rolling Stone‘s list of the "100 Greatest Singers of All Time" and
number 89 on the magazine’s list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of
All Time.
