Lovett was born November 1, 1957, the only child of Bernell and Bill
Lovett of Klein, Texas. Klein was founded by Lyle's great-great
grandfather on his mother's side, Adam Klein. Klein and his wife,
Fredricka Klenk-Klein immigrated to America from Germany, traveled to
Houston, and bought land near Cypress Creek. Other German immigrants
soon settled on both sides in what is now Tomball. Adam Klein set up the
Klein post office and, with others, founded the Trinity Lutheran Church
graduating from high school a semester early, Lyle made his way to
College Station, Texas, and Texas A&M University. In 1975, at the
age of 18, Lyle enrolled at Texas A&M and graduated seven years
later with degrees in both German and Journalism. While at Texas
A&M, Lyle played many coffee houses and even a local pizza
restaurant called Mr. Gatti's.
In 1979, he left Texas to study abroad in Rothenburg,
Germany. He made friends with some musicians from Luxemburg in 1983, and
with the help of a Phoenix band called J. David Sloan and the Rogues, he
recorded a four-song demo tape. In 1984, he traveled to Nashville to
sing backing vocals on
Nanci Griffith's third album, "Once
in a Very Blue Moon," on which Nanci sings Lyle's song "If
I Were the Woman You Wanted." During his first week in Nashville he
presented his work to ASCAP. He won them over and got a contract with
His self-titled debut album was released on MCA/Curb
in 1986. His second, "Pontiac,"
was released in 1987. Lyle won the Grammy for Best Male Vocalist for the
1989 album "Lyle
Lovett & His Large Band."
Judges Ruth" was released in 1992. He won a second Grammy for
his 1993 duet with Al Green, "Funny How Time Slips Away" from
the album "Rhythm,
Country and Blues" and a third for 1994's "Blues for
Dixie" recorded with
the Wheel for a tribute to Texas swing pioneer Bob Wills.
In 1994, Lyle's fifth album, "I
Love Everybody" was released. Instead of recording new
material, Lyle used this release to clean out his song writing catalog.
All the songs on the album were written between 1976 and 1985. In 1996,
Lyle released "Road
To Ensenada," which received the Grammy Award for Best Country
Lyle Lovett was one of the most distinctive and
original singer/songwriters to emerge during the '80s. Though he was
initially labeled as a country singer, the tag never quite fit him.
Lovett had more in common with '70s singer/songwriters like Guy Clark,
Jesse Winchester, Randy Newman and Townes Van Zandt, combining a talent
for incisive, witty lyrical detail with an eclectic array of music,
ranging from country and folk to big-band swing and traditional pop.
Lovett's literate, multi-layered songs stood out among the formulaic
Nashville hit singles of the late '80s, as well as the new
traditionalists that were beginning to take over country music.
Drawing from Alt-Country and rock fans, Lyle
Lovett quickly built up a cult following which began to spill over
into the mainstream with his second album, 1988's "Pontiac."
his country audience declined but his reputation as a songwriter and
musician continued to grow, and he sustained a dedicated cult following
well into the '90s.
His six solo albums, beginning with his 1986
self-titled debut, have been the work of a ceaselessly creative
musician, equally comfortable in pop, rock, blues, and country genres.
One national critic put it well when he noted that Lovett's
"razor-sharp music is as good as roots pop gets." Lovett has
also earned admiration for his striking acting performances, especially
in two Robert Altman films, "Players" and "Short Cuts."
