Lyle Lovett is one of the all-time great American singer/songwriters. His voice is unique, but his antecedents are recognizable. In his work two roads come together, the trail blazed by the great Texas storytellers of whom Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark are the best known, and the crooked highway navigated by sophisticated humorists such as Randy Newman and Tom Waits.

Lovett’s first gift was to combine these two potent strands of musical DNA into a new genome able to generate songs as brilliant and double-sided as “If I Had A Boat,” “God Will,” “If I Were the Man You Wanted,” “Family Reserve” and “Her First Mistake.” That would be plenty for any composer to base a career on, but Lovett was also capable of both flat-out humor (“That’s Right (You’re Not From Texas”), “Here I am,” ”Church”) and heartbreakers that were poignant without ever descending into sentimentality (“She’s Already Made Up Her Mind,” “Nobody Knows Me,” “The Road To Ensenada”).

Lyle Lovett is a four time Grammy winner and has led a remarkable career which includes 13 albums and over four million records sold. His music uniquely intersects an array of genres from country and folk to big-band swing and traditional pop as evidenced by such revered albums as "Lyle Lovett," "Pontiac," "Lyle Lovett and His Large Band," "Joshua, Judges, Ruth" and "The Road To Ensenada."

"It’s Not Big It’s Large", and his latest release "Natural Forces". Another facet of Lovett’s career is acting, but it’s music to which Lovett always returns, for it’s his own stories and songs that resonate the most.

We have been advised that Lyle Lovett will be appearing with His Acoustic Group and not with His Large Band.
