    I have several albums. There may not be a song of his I don’t like.

    I haven't listened to him in a bit, but I am a fan. I've seen him about 5 or 6 times, solo, with John Hiatt, with a small acoustic band, and with his "Large" band. If he swings by with the Large band, I may try to see him again.

    His country stuff is ok...

    I just bought Anthology 1 Cowboy Man which has most of my favorites of his.

    I need to dive in deeper but whenever I try it never fits my mood....

    I have seen him twice. Used to be a bigger fan but still a fan. Have not listened to too much of the new stuff.

    The Road To Ensenada is an incredible album all the way through.

    Big fan.

    Along with Tom Waits and Bob Dylan, he is one of America's greatest living songwriters.

    I went begrudgingly with my wife to see the Large Band and was so impressed we went to see two more shows.

    I like him well enough but the core Large Band (unsure if the personnel changes) were everything I could hope for; they played for the song and when he turned them loose, they nailed their solos.

    I've always liked Lyle. However, when I saw him many moons ago on a PBS special (I think it was PBS) with Rodney Crowell, Willie Nelson (I believe!) and a few other singer songwriters, my respect of his craft went up ten fold. He sang the song "I like eggs over easy, with corn tortillas" solo with just his guitar. Man oh man, hit me right in the heart....amazing.

    Julia Roberts was a big fan...........for a while. :)



    Country singer-songwriter Lyle Lovett married actress Julia Roberts after three weeks of dating. The two met while on the set of Robert Altman’s 1992 film “The Player.” At the time, Roberts was 25 years old and had a history of short-lived romances. Lovett was 35 years old and had never been married. Lovett and Roberts married on June 27, 1993 in Marion, Indiana.

    Don't know much about him except that he has an instantly recognizable voice and face. My kid used to make me sing "If I had a Boat" to her every night. Each time the line w/ "kiss my ass" came up, she would crack up.

    I’m a huge, long time fan!
    I saw him at Aquafest (pre-ACL Fest) in 1987.
    I scored this cool poster recently.
    It’s doubly cool for me, because the poster artist is an old friend, Guy Juke.
    Lyle’s brilliant!

    I saw Don Henley in Noblesville IN the week after the wedding and he dedicated a song to them and mentioned how it "gave hope to homely guys everywhere."

    Whoa. The economy of words there blows me away. Powerful stuff.
