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.
Garden & Gun recently called Lovett “one of America’s most beloved singer/songwriters,” and he was featured in the coveted “What I’ve Learned” column in the February 2012 issue of Esquire.
Lovett has been touring in support of Release Me since its release in February. The album was #1 for several weeks on the Americana charts. Produced by Nathaniel Kunkel and Lovett, Release Me represents the end of an era as it was his last record for Curb/Universal Music Group after being on the label for his entire career. Release Me is quintessential Lyle, mixing a smart collection of originals and songs written by some of his favorite songwriters that show not only the breadth of this Texas legend’s deep talents, but also the diversity of his influences, making him one of the most infectious and fascinating musicians in popular music.
Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lyle Lovett has evolved into one of music’s most vibrant and iconic performers. His oeuvre, rich and eclectic, is one of the most beloved of any living artist working today.

Kathleen Madigan Cancelled
A fire in the Purple Urchin restaurant has caused power and gas to be shut off to the Casino Complex, which also houses the Casino Ballroom. Although the Casino Ballroom did not suffer any damage, power and gas will not be restored to the complex in time to host Kathleen Madigan's performance scheduled for Thursday October 13th at 8pm. Refunds are available at point of purchase. No other shows on the Ballroom schedule will be impacted.
Our thoughts are with our good friends from the Purple Urchin. We would also like to the thank the true "rock stars" of the world, first responders from Hampton Fire and PD as well as all the surrounding towns.
