Lyle Lovett & His Large Band

Although he was viewed as a country act when he emerged, Lyle Lovett plays his distinct brand of American music from a Texas perspective. The only things that make Lovett resemble a country artist are his cowboy boots, the three Grammys he’s won in country categories and his tendency to tour whether he’s promoting a new album or not. His latest recording is 2012’s “Release Me.” After playing a generous and rewarding 2½ hours last year at the Minnesota Zoo, Lovett returns there for the third consecutive summer, this time with His Large Band.
