Country singer Bonnie Raitt appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night where she performed her new single ‘Need You Tonight‘. The track is from Raitt’s latest album Dig in Deep and, yes, it is her cover of the classic INXS song ‘Need You Tonight’.
And wow, you never really think of a country version of that song but, yep, it really does work.
Because, come on, it’s Bonnie Raitt as cool as ever, with that awesome guitar solo, her husky and sexy voice, and, when she sings, “There’s something about you, boy, that makes me sweat”, you really believe her.

As for her album Dig in Deep, where this track comes from, it is her 17th studio album, and was released back in February to universal acclaim from the critics. You can currently grab it on all major digital music sites.
