Vince Gill & Lyle Lovett Book Another Round

Vince Gill and Lyle Lovett are joining forces once again for 2017’s edition of the “Songs and Stories” tour.  

The setlist will be made up of a mix of solo and duo performances. The shows promise spontaneity and some laughs. There’s a reason why the announcement on Gill’s website described the two musicians as “the always witty Vince Gill and the reliably wry Lyle Lovett.”

A review from Elmore Magazine says, “The evening reminded me of the Rat Pack, with pals Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra doing comedy and music and having a great time … they just happened to be on stage while the magic happened.”

Looking for more quotes? Take it away, Vince and Lyle!

“For a night like this, there is no plan,” Gill said. “I know Lyle won’t have a plan, and I won’t either. What he plays will inspire me, and probably vice-versa. It’ll be like playing ping-pong. Whatever song he chooses to sing will inspire the next song that comes out of me.”

Lovett added, “I enjoy shows that are not planned out. This will be two songwriters in the round. It’s informal, so there will be lots of ad-libbing. It will be like little snapshots of our experiences.”
