Lyle Lovett and His Large Band

Tuesday, August 22
7:30 p.m.
Victoria Fine Arts Center


We are excited to put a twist on our Sweat Equity Series by bringing in four-time Grammy winner, singer, songwriter, storyteller and actor - Lyle Lovett and His Large Band.

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 country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. 

Whether touring as a ‘Duo’ or with his ‘Acoustic Group’ or his ‘Large Band,’ Lovett’s live performances show not only the breadth of this Texas legend’s deep talents, but also the diversity of his influences, making him one of the most compelling and captivating musicians in popular music.

Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lyle Lovett has evolved into one of music’s most vibrant and iconic performers. Among his many accolades, besides the four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was named Texas State Musician. His works, rich and eclectic, are some of the most beloved of any artist working today.

About Speaking of Sweat Equity

The Golden Crescent Habitat for Humanity Speaking of Sweat Equity Series pays homage to the fact that every Habitat family partner invests 300 hours of “sweat equity” in lieu of the cash down payment a typical homeowner pays when purchasing a home. Featured speakers address how they invest their own forms of sweat equity to overcome personal and professional challenges.

Proceeds from the event will be used to help build simple, affordable homes for local families in need. Since 2012, the annual Speaking of Sweat Equity event has raised enough funds to help build six homes.
