Grammys 2023: Bonnie Raitt wins Song of the Year for ‘Just Like That’
Bonnie Raitt won the Song of the Year award for her popular song “Just Like That” on Monday. The singer, who is 73 years old, beat out All Too Well and As It Was to win the prestigious award.
This gives her a total of 13 Grammy wins, on top of a huge 30 nominations. Her collection of awards is already very impressive, and this is the newest one. In 2000, she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2010, she was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame. People often think of these as some of the most important things an artist can do in the music business.
Just Like That was a song that Raitt wrote for her close friend John Prine, who died in 2020 from Covid-19. In her speech, she thanked everyone who liked the song and said that it was because she wrote it from “a place of love” that people could relate to it.
Just Like That was on her album with the same name, and it peaked at number 44 on the Billboard Top 200. Before she won, the artist did a tribute to the English musician Christine McVie, who had died.
