Nobody In Particular Presents:
John Hiatt is one of America’s most respected and influential singer-songwriters.
“You know how writing goes for me, “ John Hiatt says, offering a glimpse into his creative
process. “I get a couple of lines going, and then I just tag along as the songs start to reveal
themselves. You’ve just gotta jump inside and take the ride.”
Hiatt has been on that ride – as have we all, tagging along right beside him – for more than four
decades now. In fact, since the release of his 1974 debut, Hangin’ Around the Observatory,
rarely has more than a year or two passed without a new Hiatt collection hitting the shelves.
In total, John has released 26 critically embraced solo albums as well as an album with the
legendary group Little Village with Ry Cooder, Nick Lowe and Jim Keltner. His most recent
studio album, Leftover Feelings, is a collaboration with Dobro Master Jerry Douglas that was
recorded at the historical RCA Studio B in Nashville.
As a credit to John’s songwriting career, over 400 of his songs have been recorded by
artists ranging from Bonnie Raitt to Eric Clapton and BB King to Bob Dylan and Iggy Pop.
Since 2000 he’s been on a remarkable late-career run, releasing a dozen acclaimed studio
albums and embarking on numerous tours in the U.S. and abroad.
John’s esteemed career has earned him 10 GRAMMY award nominations, his own star on
Nashville’s Walk of Fame, the 2019 BMI Troubadour award, the Americana Music Association’s
2008 Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting, has been inducted into the Nashville
Songwriters Hall of Fame, and he was saluted at the Indiana Governor’s Arts Awards.
