The 58th Annual Grammy Awards went heavy on the musical tributes on Monday (Feb. 15). When Bonnie Raitt took the stage to honor R&B great Ruth Brown, the focus soon turned to the main stage where Grammy winners Chris Stapleton and Gary Clark Jr. began a performance to honor blues legend, B.B. King.
King died at the age of 89 on May 14, 2015 and left behind a legacy that spanned over six decades. Influencing too many artists to count, as well as crossing genre boundaries, Stapleton and Clark J. played one of his biggest hits, "The Thrill Is Gone."
Stapleton opened the number, showcasing his guitar skills. When Clark Jr. joined in, the two showed the audience exactly why they were there. A notorious singer and guitar player, the tribute to King continued as Raitt hit the stage.
Taking the song home in the most perfect way, the three artists -- whose genres span from country to blues -- definitely brought a thrill to music's biggest night.
