Bonnie Raitt Releases Tour Dates, Streams Single

As the April 10 release date for Bonnie Raitt’s Slipstream gets closer, the slide-guitar icon announced that her upcoming tour will begin May 1 in Newkirk, Okla.

In addition, the first single – a reggae-inspired cover of Gerry Rafferty’s “Right Down The Line” – is currently streaming.

“I’ve always been a big Gerry Rafferty fan. I heard the song ‘Right Down the Line’ come on the radio a few years ago, and the guitar came to me like a lighting bolt,” she told Rolling Stone. “Gerry was such a soulful and unique artist and I’m very sorry he passed before he could hear our version of his song.”

Additionally, Raitt, a nine-time Grammy winner, will perform on the 54th Annual Grammy Awards this Sunday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
