SWING TIME

Texas-born singer-songwriter Lyle Lovett has been giving us his signature style of country since the mid-’80s, when his blend of folk, gospel, blues, and jazzy swing attracted an audience bored of the then-pasteurized country music souring the airwaves. The multiple Grammy-winner is also a notable actor, starring in more than 20 TV and film roles, including parts in four Robert Altman films and, most significantly, 2007’s Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. While Lovett has been known as much for his gravity-defying hairstyle as his unique tunes, when Lovett & His Large Band hit the stage, it’s all about the alt-country tunes and not the coiffure.
