Two of America's greatest singer-songwriters, Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt, will come together for an intimate evening of songs and stories.
A Grammy Award-winning singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett is one of music's most vibrant and iconic performers. The Texan has broadened the definition of American music, fusing elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a manner that defies convention. It is no surprise that the Americana Music Association awarded him its inaugural Trailblazer Award.
John Hiatt is a talented singer and guitarist best known for his prolific songwriting. His songs have been covered by musicians from Bonnie Raitt and the Neville Brothers to Iggy Pop and Three Dog Night. With 11 Grammy nominations and two dozen albums to his name, he was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and won the Americana Music Association's Lifetime Achievement Award.
An Acoustic Evening with Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt will be a spur-of-the-moment concert, Lovett says. "The show that John and I do is not scripted in any way, and we do not discuss at all what we're going to play," Lovett told Pop Matters. "John always plays first - we go in alphabetical order - and what I play is determined or suggested by what he plays first. And we just go from there. It's very relaxed, a free exchange."
