Four-time Grammy® Award winner Lyle Lovett, returns to the DPAC stage on August 15, 2018 with His Large Band. 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. 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. 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.

Lyle is truly one of the best. From the large band stocked full of talent to the intimate stories behind certain songs and band members, he entertains while being down to earth and focused on writing great songs.

This was not only my favorite of his shows, it is now officially my favorite concert in the last 50 years. It was profoundly musical, the arrangements flowing naturally, the instrumentation densities and volumes changing constantly like the very best classical and jazz ensembles and the overall design of the event itself masterfully aesthetic. His humor is wry and sneakily hilarious and endearing and heartbreaking. His generosity and obvious love and admiration for each spectacular band member bathed the stage in a warmth that I believe only he can create. His utterly humanistic yearning is my new totem pole around which I’ll dance forever.

He is always wonderful, the other musicians were fabulous also. We will always go see Lyle!
The show was fantastic! Lyle's Big Band did not disappoint. The venue was intimate making it that much better. I always love hearing Lyle's Big Band but this was an especially great evening.

Lyles is great! He had his comedy chops going well tonight. If the case never was Lyle only I’d give 4.5. I’m not so interested in Shawn Colvin

Lyle and Shawn's collaboration was one of the finest acoustic shows I've seen. It was a wonderful evening of music!
