Grammy-award winning singer and songwriter Lyle Lovett has defied categorization for nearly two decades, bringing together the sounds of folk, jazz, gospel, blues and R&B. Active since 1980, he has recorded 13 albums and released 25 singles to date, including his highest entry, the number 10 chart hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, "Cowboy Man". Lovett established a solid country following with his first album, Lyle Lovett (1986), and continued to acquire new fans with his many genre-bending deviations from traditional country themes and instrumentation.
