 About The Musician:

Lovett began his music career as a singer-songwriter. By the early 1980s, Lovett had already distinguished himself in the burgeoning Texas folk acoustic scene. He had performed in the New Folk competition at the Kerrville Folk Festival in 1980 and 1982.[12] An American singer, Buffalo Wayne, whom he had met in 1978 during a college trip to Germany, invited Lovett to play with him at the 1983 Schueberfouer in Luxembourg. One of the events at the funfair was an American musical tent. The owner of that event was a fan of the Phoenix, Arizonahouse band J. David Sloan and the Rogues.[13] He invited the Rogues for the event, and Lovett was encouraged by band members Ray Herndon and Matt Rollings to sit in with the group,[14] which did some of his songs. They opened his eyes to what his songs could sound like with proper backing; Lovett had never sung with a band before.[13] Sloan and band member Billy Williams offered Lovett a deal on studio time, first day free. In 1984 Lovett took them up on the offer. After several stays in Arizona over that summer he recorded 18 songs.[15] The demo tape of the first four songs led to his first record deal;] ten of those songs, recorded with the Rogues, became Lovett’s self-titled debut album.[17] He made many longtime contacts in Arizona during that time. Several of the Rogue players, Herndon, Matt McKenzie, Rollings, and Williams, went on to play in his band. Williams produced or co-produced several of his albums from 1987 to 2007. Through them he met Francine Reed, who began recording with him in 1985 and toured with him for decades. In 2022, reliving his Phoenix connection:

It led to a demo tape, an album and now, this rolling Thanksgiving tour…It’s all because of running into this band in Luxembourg. That’s a long way to get to Phoenix from Texas. It’s a lot shorter if you just do I–10

He signed with MCA Records in 1986 and released his eponymous debut album. He sang harmony vocals on Nanci Griffith’s The Last of the True Believers album (1986). While typically associated with the country genre, Lovett’s compositions often incorporate folkswingbluesjazz and gospel music as well as more traditional country & western styling. He has won four Grammy Awards, including Best Country Album (1996 for The Road to Ensenada), Best Country Duo/Group with Vocal (1994 for “Blues For Dixie” with the Texas swing group Asleep at the Wheel), Best Pop Vocal Collaboration (1994 for “Funny How Time Slips Away” with Al Green) and Best Country Male Vocal (1989 for Lyle Lovett and His Large Band). In 1995, Lovett performed a duet of “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” with Randy Newman for Toy Story. He plays Collings acoustic guitars.

Lovett has acted in a number of films, notably four for director Robert AltmanThe Player (1992), Short Cuts (1993), Prêt-à-Porter (1994), and Cookie’s Fortune (1999). He also composed the score for the director’s Dr. T & the Women (2000). Some of his other film roles include Bastard Out Of Carolina (1996), The New Guy (2002), Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story (2007), and a humorous role in Angels Sing, a family Christmas movie (alongside fellow actors and musicians such as Harry Connick, Jr.Connie BrittonWillie Nelson, and Kris Kristofferson). His television acting forays include guest roles on Mad About You and Castle, a recurring role on The Bridge (as Flagman, a lawyer), and appearances as himself on Dharma & Greg and Brothers & Sisters.

Mary Chapin Carpenter‘s 1992 song “I Feel Lucky” makes reference to Lovett, as does Bloodhound Gang‘s 1999 song “The Bad Touch“, which includes the lyric, “and you’ll Lovett just like Lyle.”

Lovett was given an award called an “Esky” for Surest Thing in Esquire’s 2006 Esky Music Awards in the April issue. The magazine said of Lovett: “The secret of Lyle Lovett’s endurance comes down to the three C’s: class, charisma and consistency… In the studio and on stage with his giant orchestra, he’s spent two decades gracefully matching genuine songcraft with A-list musicianship”.

In 2010, Lovett appeared on an episode of Spectacle: Elvis Costello with… that also featured John Prine and Ray LaMontagne.

In 2011, Lovett was named Texas State Artist Musician by the Texas Commission on the Arts.[22]

Lovett contributed a cover of Buddy Holly‘s “Well… All Right” for the tribute album Listen to Me: Buddy Holly, released on September 6, 2011.
