Curb/Lost Highway is excited to announce that four-time Grammy Award-winner Lyle Lovett will be touring this spring. Next week, Lovett will also appear on the Late Show with David Letterman on February 27th, The View on February 29th, and Morning Joe on March 2nd.
Lovett, who Garden & Gun recently called “one of America’s most beloved singer/songwriters” and was featured in the coveted “What I’ve Learned” column from this month’s Esquire, will be playing solo acoustic on this tour. After an acoustic band set at The Concert Hall at New York Society for Ethical Culture in New York City on February 28th, Lovett will be joined by John Hiatt, beginning their solo acoustic run at the State Theater in Minneapolis on March 7th and wrapping up at the Saenger Theatre in Pensacola on March 25.
Lovett will release his new album, Release Me, on February 28, 2012. Produced by Nathaniel Kunkel and Lovett, Release Me 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. 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.
Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lovett has evolved into one of music’s most vibrant and iconic performers. His oeuvre, rich and eclectic, is one of the most beloved of any living artist working today.
