A singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers.
Whether touring as a “Duo” or with his “Acoustic Group” or his “Large Band,” Lovett’s live performances show not only the breadth of this Texas legend’s deep talents, but also the diversity of his influences, making him one of the most compelling and captivating musicians in popular music.
Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lyle Lovett has evolved into one of music’s most vibrant and iconic performers. Among his many accolades, including his four Grammy® Awards (Best Male Country Vocal Performance, Best Country Album, Best Country Duo/Group with Vocal and Best Pop Vocal Collaboration), he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was named a Texas State Artist Musician by the Texas Commission on the Arts. In 2015 Lovett received the Distinguished Alumnus Award from his alma mater, Texas A&M University.
