Lyle Lovett & His Large Band

Let’s come out and say it: Lyle Lovett is one of the all-time great American singer-songwriters and should be recognized as such. His voice is unique, but his antecedents are recognizable. In his work, two roads come together: the trail blazed by the great Texas storytellers like Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, and the crooked highway navigated by sophisticated wise-asses such as Randy Newman and Tom Waits.
