Bonnie Raitt won three awards at the 2023 Grammy Awards. Before the main ceremony, she won Best American Roots Song for “Just Like That” and Best Americana Performance for “Made Up Mind.”

During the televised ceremony, Raitt won the all-genre Song of the Year Award for “Just Like That.” Her jaw dropped in surprise before she made her way onstage to give her acceptance speech.

She said:

“Thank you for honoring me, to all the Academy that surrounds me with so much support and appreciates the art of songwriting as I do…And people have been responding to the song partly because of how much I love and we all love [the late] John Prine, and that was the inspiration for the music for this song and telling a story from the inside…I don’t write a lot of songs, but I’m so proud that you appreciate this one and what this means for me and for the rest of the songwriters…”
