To many, Lyle Lovett is the modern embodiment of Texas music — its celebratory swing, its vigorous country soul and, most of all, its extraordinary literate sense of storytelling. Lovett's songs are full of wit and wisdom with characters and concepts that loom large on the American landscape.
"Lovett's music distinctively melds folk, Texas swing, blues, jazz, gospel, and traditional country and western," writes Reuters, "and the songs are often as infused with Texas spirit as tumbleweed and wide open plains." Details magazine adds, "He'll make you want to trade your loft for a two-story house with a wraparound porch."
Lovett is a four-time Grammy winner and has led a remarkable career which now includes fourteen albums and over four million records sold. Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lyle Lovett has created an incredible body of acclaimed work. His songwriting has a unique and rich style that has become synonymous with the artist, as evidenced by such well-known songs as "If I Had a Boat," "Nobody Knows Me," "South Texas Girl," "She's No Lady," "Baby Don't Tolerate," "In My Own Mind," "That's Right (You're Not From Texas)," "Here I Am," and revered albums as "Lyle Lovett," "Pontiac," "Lyle Lovett and His Large Band," "Joshua Judges Ruth," "The Road To Ensenada" and 2007's "It's Not Big It's Large." "Natural Forces" continues in the tradition of timeless music Lovett continues to create.
