Last season’s special event with Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt sold out so quickly, would-be ticket buyers had to be turned away months before the concert. So, when Lyle was invited back to Aggieland as part of his summer tour, his answer was yes! This very special season opening concert will feature Lyle with HIS LARGE BAND in the 2500-seat Rudder Auditorium.
A singer, composer, and actor, LYLE LOVETT has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums over three decades. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of Americana, swing, jazz, folk, gospel, and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Whether touring as a ‘Duo’ or with his ‘Acoustic Group’ or ‘The Large Band’, Lovett’s live performances show not only the breadth of this Texas legend’s deep talents, but also the diversity of his influences, making him one of the most compelling and captivating musicians in popular music. Since his self-titled debut in 1986, LYLE LOVETT has evolved into one of music’s most vibrant and iconic performers. Among his many accolades, besides the four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was named Texas State Musician. His works, rich and eclectic, are some of the most beloved of any living artist working today.
