Lyle Lovett is one of the all-time great American singer/songwriters. His voice is unique, but his antecedents are recognizable. In his work two roads come together, the trail blazed by the great Texas storytellers of whom Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark are the best known, and the crooked highway navigated by sophisticated humorists such as Randy Newman and Tom Waits.
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 Lovett and His Large Band, Joshua, Judges, Ruth and The Road To Ensenada.
