On rare occasion a show at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater sells out well in advance. This was true for Lyle Lovett’s acoustic appearance with his friend John Hiatt in February 2009. John Hiatt will not be there this time around, but there is no doubt Lyle Lovett will draw audiences from across the state (and maybe from across the state line). The Texan will be back on stage at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater for the second time on May 2, 2013.
Dubbed as “the Thinking Man’s Cowboy”, Lyle Lovett’s attraction seems to not be limited to one group of people. As wide as the diversity of his audience, so is his career. A singer, composer and actor, he 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. Lovett has appeared in 13 feature films, and on stage and television. Among his many accolades, besides the four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was recently named the Texas State Musician.
Garden & Gun recently called Lovett “one of America’s most beloved singer/songwriters,” and he was featured in the coveted “What I’ve Learned” column in the February 2012 issue of Esquire.
