In House #1650: John Hiatt & the N. Mississippi All-Stars Tonight in Salt Lake City
Back in the early years of his career, it may have seemed to singer-songwriter John Hiatt that it just wasn't in the cards for him to make it as an artist. Sure, songs he had penned had scored hits for the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Iggy Pop, and Three Dog Night, but the public seemed to ignore him when he released an album of his own, leading to his being dropped by his first label despite critical acclaim. Thirty-two years and eighteen albums into a career that has seen more than a couple of different phases, it seems safe to say that Hiatt has cemented his place in the music world. Hiatt hits Salt Lake City's Red Butte Garden tonight, touring in support of last year's Master of Disaster.
Serving as both opener and backing band for Hiatt are the North Mississippi All-Stars, two-thirds of whom are the sons of legendary producer and performer Jim Dickinson. They released their first album for Dave Matthews' ATO label last year, entitled Electric Blue Watermelon.
