Raitt is a true American music icon. The daughter of Broadway musical star John Raitt, she taught herself to play Blues guitar and rose to prominence in a genre that had been dominated by men. Her music is both a cornerstone of the Americana songbook and a bridge for Top 40 listeners to connect with a roots-based sound.
