Two Texas music legends take the stage together for a down-home concert event onOctober 15th at the Tennessee Theatre – An Evening with Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen!

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 Americana, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Among his many accolades, besides the four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, and has been named Texas State Musician.

Now three-decades on from the release of his debut album — with well over a dozen other records to his name, thousands of shows under his belt and still no end in sight to the road ahead

— Robert Earl Keen is the very symbol of Americana music. A Texas Heritage Songwriters Hall of Famer, Keen’s literate songcraft and razor wit have stirred up a grassroots sensation, not just in Texas, but dancehalls, roadhouses, theaters, and festival grounds across the nation. For Keen, the road goes on and on.
