No one writes songs like Lyle Lovett. Finely wrought and full of wit, wisdom and Texas-sized storytelling, the veteran singer/songwriter’s catalog is rife with characters and concepts that loom large on the American landscape.
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 Love_tt __and His Large Band_, Joshua Judges Ruth and The Road To Ensenada.
It’s Not Big It’s Large, Lovett’s latest collection, has been one of the most acclaimed efforts of his career. The album contains big, contemporary themes, but it is Lovett’s gift to make the deep thoughts slide down like honey. USA Today heralded his “Texas-sized cowboy jazz,” as the Wall Street Journal declared Lovett has “been widening the reach of country music for over 20 years,” while praising the “dozen new tracks that touch on country and folk as well as blues, jazz and gospel.” The memorable songs include “I Will Rise Up/Ain’t No Cane,” the poignant “South Texas Girl,” the infectious, upbeat “Up in Indiana.” and the rueful ballad “Don’t Cry a Tear.”
For the last few years, Lovett, who is able to conjure musical magic in a variety of settings, has been alternating Large Band tours with acoustic trio and quartet shows or teaming with Hiatt as well as larger songwriter circles also featuring Hiatt, Guy Clark and Joe Ely.
