Born in Indianapolis, Indiana.

While his commercial success will probably never match his reputation, John Hiatt is recognized as one of the greatest songwriting talents of the 20th century.  His songs have been covered by a variety of notable artists such as Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, and B.B. King with Eric Clapton.  Although his first major label album was released in 1974, Hiatt eluded commercial success until 1987, with the release of "Bring The Family".  From there, his next 9 studio albums hit the Billboard 200, although none higher than #47.  While he never had a Hot 100 hit, 8 songs charted on the Mainstream Rock charts.
