Bonnie Raitt pays tribute to late Phil Everly at all-star concert
Singer Bonnie Raitt and veteran musician T Bone Burnett headlined an all-star concert on Saturday (25Jan14) to honour the late Phil Everly and his work in the Everly Brothers.
The I Can't Make You Love Me hitmaker was among a handful of performers who took to the stage at the pre-Grammy Awards tribute concert in Los Angeles, hosted by the Americana Music Association.
Raitt and Oscar-winning music producer Burnett both paid homage to Everly, along with Ry Cooder, Rodney Crowell, Joe Henry and Sarah Jarosz.
Among those in the audience was Everly's widow, Patty, who was acknowledged at the end of tribute, while the singer's brother Don sent his apologies for not attending the event, insisting he was still too "broken-hearted" to mourn his sibling in public.
Burnett's wife, Nashville creator Callie Khouri, was also in attendance, along with actor Jack Black, and Steve Martin, who won a Grammy Award on Sunday (26Jan14) for Best American Roots Song.
Everly passed away earlier this month (Jan14) aged 74 after suffering complications linked to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
