Two of America's most admired singer-songwriters share the stage for an intimate acoustic evening of unforgettable stories and iconic songs. Lovett and Hiatt have been touring together periodically since 1989, delivering one of the most compelling and spontaneous concerts on the road.
A singer, composer, and actor, Lyle Lovett 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. Whether touring as a Duo, with his Acoustic Group, or his 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, 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 artist working today.
Long celebrated as a skilled storyteller and keen observer of life’s twists and turns, John Hiatt can get at the heart of a knotty emotion or a moment in time with just a sharp, incisive lyric or witty turn of phrase. His newest album, The Eclipse Sessions, offers up his strongest set of music in years. Along the way, his songs have attracted many other singers, through whom some have gained a wider world of fans via other artists' versions, such as Rosanne Cash's "Pink Bedroom" and most famously Bonnie Raitt's hit version of "Thing Called Love." Hiatt's series of shows with Lyle Lovett, which he calls "our little Smothers Brothers comedy show," has brought out other spins on his art, as well as elements already familiar to those who've been there all along. Alternately bemused and profound, Hiatt is a selfaware chronicler of both his own and others' stumbles and epiphanies, the tales richer with each step forward.
