"Lyle Lovett/Bob Schneider" - This weekend it’s a Texas singer/songwriter bonanza, as we encore the 2010 season-ending episode featuring Lyle Lovett and Bob Schneider.

This performance, which hightlights Lovett's album "Natural Forces," as well as classics, was the final taping in the show’s original home of Studio 6A on the UT campus. His setlist includes the songs: "I Will Rise Up," "Natural Forces," "Up in Indiana," "White Freighliner Blues" and "Closing Time."

Bob Schneider surveys his decade-long eclectic solo career. “My favorite songwriters never wrote songs that sounded the same or had the same general feel,” Schneider says, explaining the show’s eclectic nature. “How could I expect to keep myself, let alone anyone else, interested if each song didn’t do its own thing or follow its own path?”

Schneider's setlist includes the songs: "40 Dogs," "Love is Everywhere," "Let the Light In," "Changing Your Mind" and "Murder."
