I typically don't love new country, so I'm surprised that I actually enjoy Lyle Lovett
's music. A few years ago, l watched Lovett perform with His Large Band at Starlight. The two-hour show was great, filled with ballads that resembled classic country rather than anything recorded in the last 15 years. Take a listen to Lovett and his band (the Acoustic Group, rather than the Large Band that will perform tonight at 7:30, Yardley Hall
) at NPR.org
. The 105-minute live performance went down at Prospect Park Bandshell in Brooklyn on August 11. Get more tonight when he plays at
Yardley Hall at Johnson County Community College.
