An Acoustic Evening with Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt
November 5 at 7:30 pm
Yavapai College Performing Arts Center, Prescott
A 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, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Lovett has appeared in 13 feature films, and on stage and television. Among his many accolades, besides the four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association's inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was recently named the Texas State Musician.

John Hiatt earned a Grammy nomination for his album Crossing Muddy Waters, and B.B. King and Eric Clapton shared a Grammy for their album Riding With The King, the title track from which was a Hiatt composition. In 2007, John Hiatt was honored with his own star on Nashville's Walk of Fame and his legacy was even further cemented with a pair of accolades in the fall of 2008: the Americana Music Association's Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting in September, and his October induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
