Here's what promoter, Pepper Entertainment had to say in a press release about these two talented musicians:

A singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a
career that spans 14 albums. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician
fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner
that breaks down barriers.

Whether touring as a 'Duo' or with his 'Acoustic Group' or his 'Large Band,' Lovett's live
performances show not only the breadth of this Texas legend's deep talents, but also the
diversity of his influences, making him one of the most compelling and captivating musicians in
popular music.
Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lyle Lovett has evolved into one of music's most vibrant and
iconic performers. Among his many accolades, besides the four Grammy Awards, he was given
the Americana Music Association's inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was named Texas State
Musician.His works, rich and eclectic, are some of the most beloved of any artist working today.
About John Hiatt
A master lyricist and satirical storyteller, John Hiatt delivers songs filled with tales of
redemption, relationships and surrendering on his own terms. Hiatt's finest album is 1987's
Bring the Family; other catalog highlights include the pop and rock of 1983's Riding with the
King, the rough-hewn blues-rock of 2008's Same Old Man, and 2021's Leftover Feelings.  His
lyrics and melodies have graced more than 20 studio albums, have been recorded by Bob Dylan,
Emmylou Harris, B.B. King, Willie Nelson, Bonnie Raitt and scores of others, and have earned
him a place in the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, a BMI Troubadour award, and a lifetime
achievement in songwriting designation from the Americana Music Association.
