Lyle Pearce Lovett (born in Klein (unincorporated), Harris County, Texas on November 1, 1957) is an American singer-songwriter.
Lovett attended Texas A&M University, where he studied German and journalism, and lived next-door to Robert Earl Keen. Lovett's music career began as a songwriter, but he soon signed with MCA Records in 1986 and released his eponymous debut album.
While typically associated with the country genre, the music of Lovett is broader in scope. His albums typically incorporate folk, swing, blues, jazz and gospel music as well as more traditional country styling.
He has won four Grammy Awards, including Best Country Album (1996 for The Road to Ensenada, Best Country Duo/Group with Vocal (1994 for "Blues For Dixie" with the Texas swing group Asleep at the Wheel), Best Pop Vocal Collaboration (1994 for "Funny How Time Slips Away" with Al Green) and Best Country Male Vocal (1989) for Lyle Lovett and His Large Band).
