With four Grammy Awards and more than four million records sold, Lyle Lovett fuses elements of blues, country, folk, gospel, and jazz with a gift for storytelling, as evidenced by such hits as “If I Had a Boat,” “She’s No Lady,” and “My Baby Don’t Tolerate.” The Texas-based, genre-bending Lovett has created his own style of Americana music in the 14 acclaimed albums he’s released since his self-titled debut in 1986. He returns by popular demand to DCA, where he will perform with his renowned Very Large Band, featuring over a dozen brass players, string players, and vocalists. Together, Lovett and his band hoot, rock, and rollick.
