About this show

See Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt, two of America's most admired singer-songwriters, live at the State Theatre in an intimate acoustic evening!

Four-time Grammy Award-winning singer, composer, and actor Lyle Lovett — whose hits include "If I Had a Boat" and "She's No Lady" — 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.

Over the course of a four-decade songwriting and recording career — and since the release of his 1974 debut, Hangin' Around the Observatory — rarely has more than a year or two passed without a new John Hiatt collection hitting the shelves. His musical styles on his albums vary from blues to new wave to country. A member of the prestigious and highly selective Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, Hiatt has been nominated for nine Grammy Awards. He has also penned songs that became hits for the likes of Three Dog Night ("Sure as I'm Sitting Here"), Bonnie Raitt ("Thing Called Love"), and Eric Clapton and B.B. King ("Riding With the King").
