Four-time Grammy Award Winner Lyle Lovett is known for his intelligent Western Swing-tinged Country Music. Like the great songwriters of the late 70's, in the class of Randy Newman and Guy Clarke, Lovett never did just fit into one genre. His witty lyrics and eclectic mix of sounds ranging from folk to big band swing form an unforgettable catalogue of songs and although he emerged in the 80's, this musical chameleon is still a fearless innovator in the Country world to this day.
