We won a Grammy!!!! Well, we didn't but the wonderful Bonnie Raitt did and she is bringing her award winning talent to Symphony Hall!
Bonnie beat the likes of Beyonce and Harry Styles to Song of the Year - as part of a three-Grammy sweep at this year's 2023 ceremony.
Bonnie won 'Song of the Year' and 'Best American Roots Song' for her unexpected hit 'Just Like That', also bagging a 'Best Americana Performance' Award for 'Made up my Mind'.
“I’m so surprised, I don’t know what to say,” Raitt said as she accepted her award. “I don’t write a lot of songs, but I’m so proud that you appreciate this one,” she added. “I’m totally humbled.”
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame-inducted singer recorded the title track for Just Like That… — her first album in six years — in Sausalito, California in summer 2021. The musician self-produced the record and recorded alongside bassist James “Hutch” Hutchinson, drummer Ricky Fataar, keyboardist and backing vocalist Glenn Patscha, and guitarist Kenny Greenberg.
Raitt’s winning single was up against Kendrick Lamar’s “The Heart Part 5,” Beyoncé’s “Break My Soul,” Adele’s “Easy On Me,” Taylor Swift’s “All Too Well (10 Minute Version),” Gayle’s “Abcdefu,” DJ Khaled’s “God Did,” Harry Styles’ “As It Was,” Steve Lacy’s “Bad Habit,” and Lizzo’s “About Damn Time.”
We are so excited to welcome Bonnie to Symphony Hall on the 15th of June, Tickets are available now!
