Over the past few years, since 2012’s Release Me, his most recent album of new material, Lyle Lovett has been in greatest hits mode. The Houston-area native and country and western/Americana music master has also been sticking to his characteristic regimen of hard-touring, playing shows in a variety of arrangements, from stripped-down duo shows to the all-star lineup of his “Large Band” (which he’ll be bringing to town Friday). Lovett, a four-time Grammy Award winner and renowned songwriter, has long buttered his bread with his ability to incorporate damn-near the entire spectrum of American music into his songs and performances. He’s a true Texas original and a singular voice. We speak from experience when we say that this is a concert you won’t want to miss.
