As the saying goes, Lyle Lovett [web site | Amazon.com] and Robert Earl Keen [web site | Amazon.com] go way back. The two attended Texas A&M together in the late 1970s, and their friendship was cemented over music on the front porch of Keen's college residence. Today Lovett and Keen are two of music's most vibrant and iconic performers. This special evening should rekindle some old memories of that old porch, with two old friends, swapping songs on acoustic guitars, treating the audience to more than 30 years of music and friendship.
"It's just the two of us taking turns playing our songs, telling stories," says Lovett. "I have so much fun." Adds Keen: "I don’t always know his next move. Part of it is the repartee between the two of us, and, always, some really good surprises."
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, he fuses elements of Americana, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Among his many accolades, aside from his four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, and has been named Texas State Musician.
Performing alongside Lovett during the intimate concert is Robert Earl Keen, the very symbol of Americana music. Three decades after the release of his debut album, Keen has well over a dozen other records to his name, thousands of shows under his belt and there is no end in sight. A Texas Heritage Songwriters Hall of Famer, Keen's literate songcraft and razor wit have stirred up a grassroots sensation, not just in Texas, but dancehalls, roadhouses, theaters, and festival grounds across the nation.
