John Hiatt- Tennessee Plates- 3-93 Dallas

Now that Randy Newman has been inducted, here’s my nomination for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the most deserving American songwriter working today: John Hiatt. Bonnie Raitt, Eric Clapton and B.B.King, Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Joe Cocker, Iggy Pop, Dave Edmunds, Gregg Allman, Willie Nelson, Buddy Guy, Delbert McClinton, & the late Jeff Healey can’t all be wrong. But John Hiatt is also a terrific live entertainer as well, as is clear in this tale of two Elvis fans who just wanted to borrow one of the King’s pink Cadillacs. – Redbeard
