Lyle Lovett hit the music scene when I was living in Austin. The first time I saw him step on stage, all shy and awkward and all that hair, I was a goner. Then, he opened his mouth and out came a familiar sound - he was a younger version of Willis Alan Ramsey.
Lovett's gone on to develop his own style, but he still acknowledges Willis Alan as an important musical influence.
While I've seen Lovett perform several times in the past 23 years, I've never been to the luxurious Bass Hall.
I'm really looking forward to hearing some of the new tunes. He's covered several outstanding songwriters like Townes Van Zandt Vince Bell, David Ball, Don Sanders and Tommy Elskes. I sure hope he does Townes' "Loretta" and Elskes' "Bohemia." To me, they're the two gems on this record.
Couldn't find a clip of just him doing "Loretta," but found this one of "Bohemia." Enjoy.
It's going to be a good time. I can just feel it.
Tickets are priced from $45 - $125. For more information, click onto www.basshall.com.
