Four-time Grammy winner Lyle Lovett sits down with Elizabeth Cook to discuss his new album, 12th of June, his first album in ten years. Lovett explains how growing up in Houston, Texas, and fatherhood affect his music, and performs songs including “Pants Is Overrated,” “12th of June,” and “Pig Meat Man.” He also talks about his working relationships with singers Francine Reed and Chris Isaak and performs a humorous original song about touring with Isaak, “We Gave Each Other COVID, Now We’re Married.”
Part of the Museum’s “Live at the Hall” series, this live performance was recorded on September 15, 2022, as part of AmericanaFest 2022.
A singer, songwriter, actor, and producer, Lovett has released twelve genre-spanning studio albums since beginning his career in the early 1980s and has won four Grammys. He has recorded with Al Green, Nanci Griffith, Randy Newman, and other artists and, as an actor, has appeared in the movie Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story and the television shows Mad About You and Castle, among other productions. He is a 2019 Austin City Limits Hall of Fame inductee, as well as a member of the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame.
