1949: Singer-songwriter Bonnie Raitt is born in Burbank, California. She rose to fame with a series of acclaimed roots-influenced albums in the 1970s, but is perhaps even better known for her more commercial recordings in the 1990s, including "Something to Talk About," "Love Sneakin' Up on You" and "I Can't Make You Love Me."
