America’s most admired singer/songwriters
A Grammy Award-winning singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett is one of music’s most vibrant and iconic performers. He has broadened the definition of American music, fusing elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a manner that defies convention and breaks down barriers. It is no surprise that the Americana Music Association awarded him its inaugural Trailblazer Award.
John Hiatt is a talented singer and guitarist best known for his prolific songwriting. His songs have been covered by musicians from Bonnie Raitt and the Neville Brothers to Iggy Pop and Three Dog Night. With 11 Grammy nominations and 24 albums to his name, he was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and won the Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2008.
