Lyle Lovett has always been considered a peculiar fellow in the country-music scene. This lanky Texan, with his big curly hair and surly grimace, sure didn’t look like a typical country singer, but his eponymous debut record suggested otherwise, with its steely guitars, speedy fiddles, and soft Southern drawl coalescing into one of Rolling Stone's Top 100 Albums of the '80s. Although he would later win four Grammys in country music, his follow-up albums increasingly borrowed more and more from blues and big-band jazz, making his style harder to pin down than a pile of paper-bag puppets under a ceiling fan.

Lovett's entire catalog of songs takes listeners through the full spectrum of emotions, from the painfully honest heartbreaker “She’s Already Made Up Her Mind" to the tongue-in-cheek “She’s No Lady (She’s My Wife).” While somehow maintaining his down-to-earth appeal, his lyrics sometimes venture into strange, darker themes, such as the sensitivity of penguins ("Penguins"), hungry preachers that feast on doves ("Church"), and his Uncle Leon who lives in a closet ("Creep Like Me"). His impressive versatility allows him to strike a very different chord in anthems such as “That’s Right (You’re Not From Texas),” which instigates statewide swing dances and makes the spirit of Bob Wills soar.

While on tour with the Acoustic Group, made up of pros from his prized Large Band, Lovett puts a punctuation mark on his 26 years with Curb Records in support of his latest album, Release Me. Lyle’s gilded croon and ageless song choices reverberate through the sleek and stunning Modell Performing Arts Center, where recent interior makeovers have transformed the historic music hall into an appetizing mecca for culture vultures.

The Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric

The Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric has a deep history that stretches back to the 1890s, when frequent polkas filled the air on summer evenings and the walls were decked out in beer-garden fashion. Throughout the following century, acts ranging from demonstrations of electric cooking to performances by Ella Fitzgerald and Robin Williams have inspired awe and given cause for recent restoration.
