John Hiatt was raised with six siblings by his parents Robert and Ruth Hiatt. The suicide of his older brother and the death of his father when he was still young, pushed him to escape from reality through music, listening to the blues and such famous musicians as Bob Dylan and Elvis Presley. During that period, he also learned to play the guitar, and soon began to perform in numerous local night clubs, including the Hummingbird. He was also a member of several bands, such as John Lynch & the Hangmen, and The Four-Fifths.

Subsequently, at the age of 18 John moved to Nashville, Tennessee in order to pursue his career as a songwriter at the Tree-Music Publishing Company. During the forthcoming period he wrote more than 250 songs, and supposedly had to record all of them for the company, so he became a member of the band called White Duck, and released with them the band’s second album “In Season”, with the hit single “Train To Birmingham” in 1972, which marked the beginning of an increase of his net worth.

Parallel with that, he continued his career as a solo artist, signing a contract with Epic Records in 1973, and releasing his debut solo single “We Make Spirit”, which was followed by the song “Sure As I’m Sitting Here”, written in the same year and reaching 16th place on the Billboard chart in 1974, which added a considerable amount to his net worth. John soon released his debut album “Hangin’ Around the Observatory” (1974), and another album entitled “Overcoats” (1975), both of which failed to sell, so he soon found himself without a recording contract. However, by the end of the decade, he had released two studio albums via the MCA label – “Slug Line” (1979) and “Two Bit Monsters” (1980), adding somewhat to his ne worth.

At the beginning of the next decade, John began writing songs for other famous musicians – in 1982 he wrote “Across The Borderline” for Freddy Fender, which was later covered by Bob Dylan, Paul Young, and Willie Nelson, among others. In the same year, he signed a contract with Geffen, and released three more albums. He also wrote the song “It Hasn’t Happened”, which entered the Top 20 on the country charts, and the duet “The Way We Make A Broken Heart”, which topped the US country charts. Finally, his breakthrough came in 1987, when he released the album “Bring The Family”, after which came “Slow Turning” in 1988, and “Stolen Moments”, all of which became hits on the Billboard 200 chart, increasing John’s net worth by a large margin.

In 1991, his single “Tennessee Plates”, was used as a part of the soundtrack for Ridley Scott’s film ”Thelma And Louise“, and another single “Angel Eyes”, covered by The Jeff Healey Band, peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100, which contributed to his net worth enormously. During the 1990s, he also released such albums as “Perfectly Good Guitar” (1993), “Walk On” (1995), and his debut independent album “Crossing Muddy Waters” (2000), which was nominated for a Grammy Award in the category for Best Contemporary Folk Album.

To speak further about his musical career, John released six albums during the 2000s, including “Beneath This Gruff Exterior” (2003), which reached No. 3 on the US Indie chart, “Master Of Disaster” (2005), and “The Open Road” (2010). In the following year out came the album “Dirty Jeans And Mudslide Hymns”, and most recently “Terms Of My Surrender” (2014), all of which certainly increased his net worth by a large margin.

Thanks to his accomplishment in the music industry, John earned the Nashville Music Award for Songwriter/Artist of the Year in 2000, and the 2008 Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting by the Americana Music Association.

Speaking about his personal life, John Hiatt has been married to Nancy Stanley since 1986; the couple has two children together. He was previously married to Barbara Mordes from 1977 to 1980, after which he married Isabella Cecilia WoodIsabella Cecilia Wood (1980-1985), with whom he also has a daughter, Lilly Hiatt, herself a noted musician.
