Lyle Lovett and His Large Band are scheduled to appear at The Orpheum Theater. Ticket details are available HERE
Lovett is one of those characters who seems to transcend genres. Whether penning songs that are considered country, rock, swing, blues, jazz or acting in Hollywood films, the lean Texan is never short on personality,wit or wisdom. In early days he was often lumped into the Alt Country milieu. But calling Lovett another country singer is a bit like calling Mr. Ed just another horse.
He exploded onto the scene in 1986 and quickly established himself as one of America’s most unique singer/songwriters. Along the way he’s garnered 4 Grammy Awards. He is also the recipient of the American Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award. His 30 year career features 14 critically acclaimed albums. Who else could be named as Texas’ state musician? No mean feat, that one.
Expect to be entertained. In addition to being a top notch musician and bandleader Lovett is as droll and dry as a West Texas summer. Those opportunities to catch him with his Large Band are assured that his remarkable songs receive the depth and framing they deserve.
