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 has created his own style of Americana, defying convention and breaking down barriers along the way.  He has released 14 albums and has sold more than four million records.  Lovett has toured and recorded albums with his legendary Large Band, a formidable musical collective.  For the last few years Lovett has been alternating Large Band tours with acoustic duo shows with John Hiatt. In addition to his music, Lovett has appeared in 12 feature films including several directed by the acclaimed director, Robert Altman.  He was 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 music traditions.  Lovett’s last album, Natural Force, stands as a testament to both his versatile songwriting and peerless ability to interpret those by his favorite fellow Texas songwriters who inspired him.  His new album will be released in the first quarter of 2012.
