For nearly three decades, Lyle Lovett has defined the modern Texas singer-songwriter. Fusing elements of the blues, country, folk, gospel and jazz, four-time Grammy winner Lovett—in a career that spans 14 albums and more than four million records sold—has created his own style of Americana, defying convention and breaking down barriers along the way.
For the last few years Lovett has been alternating Large Band tours with acoustic shows teaming him with John Hiatt as well as larger songwriter circles also featuring long-time friends Hiatt, Guy Clark and Joe Ely. In addition to his music, Lovett has appeared in 12 feature films, including several directed by the highly acclaimed Robert Altman. He was most recently featured in the documentary For the Sake of the Song: The Story of Anderson Fair, a film that explores the significant role the legendary Houston music venue continues to play in preserving American musical traditions.
