Lyle Lovett Acoustic Tour Kicks Off Today
Tue, 28 Feb 2012 12:04:25
Lyle Lovett has kicked off his solo acoustic tour. After an acoustic band set at The Concert Hall at New York Society for Ethical Culture in New York City tonight (Feb. 28), Lovett will be joined by John Hiatt, beginning their solo acoustic run at the State Theater in Minneapolis on March 7, and wrapping up at the Saenger Theatre in Pensacola on March 25.
Lovett's new album Release Me lands today. It represents the end of an era as it's his last record for Curb/Universal Music Group after being on the label for his entire career. We take it he's not resigning, as it's the end of an era and all.
Release Me is quintessential Lyle, mixing a smart collection of originals and covers that 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 infectious and fascinating musicians in popular music.
