Lyle Lovett+John Hiatt
For as often as the term "Americana" gets thrown around, there aren't too many folks who typify it like Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt. With a crooked line traced from the bulging vein in Hiatt's forehead, through the friendly nooks and crannies of Lovett's face, and on downstream to their equally intuitive infusions of country, blues, folk, and the smart bits pecked from rock 'n' roll, these two pals should have plenty of signposts to plant as they chronicle their overland journey through American songcraft on nothing but their trusty acoustic guitars.
