Bonnie-RaittBonnie Raitt is a singer, songwriter and guitarist whose unique style blends blues, R&B, rock, and pop. After 20 years as a cult favorite, she broke through to the top in the early 90s with her Grammy award winning albums, ‘Nick of Time’ and ‘Luck of the Draw,’ which featured hits such as, “Something To Talk About” and “I Can’t Make You Love Me.” The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s nineteenth album, ‘Slipstream,’ is daring, bluesy, and steeped with the inimitable slide guitar and soulful vocals that could only be hers. Released in 2012, and earning Raitt her 10th GRAMMY Award (for Best Americana Album,) Slipstream marked Raitt’s first new album in seven years, and the debut for her newly-minted label, Redwing Records.

Larry King is a international broadcast legend. Over the course of his historic career, Larry has done more than 50,000 interviews with newsmakers from all walks of life. With his unique, conversational approach to interviewing, he changed not only the landscape of cable television, but television news in general and became the domineering force in primetime news programming. As the Emmy Award-winning host of what was CNN’s highest-rated program, King has been dubbed “the most remarkable talk-show host on TV ever” by TV Guide and “master of the mic” by TIME magazine.
