ACL: Lyle Lovett & Bob Schneider
Since his first headlining appearance on Austin City Limits in 1987, Lyle Lovett has been a dear friend and key figure in the show’s history. An iconic Texas artist with strong country-western roots, the scope of Lovett’s musical appetites harvesting elements from gospel, jazz, pop, and folk has lent itself to a body of work that truly reflects the spirit of Austin City Limits.
Austin’s Bob Schneider is “a musical omnivore eager to devour any genre that sounds appetizing” (Dallas Morning News) creating eclectic albums that fuse styles into his own unique sound. Schneider brings that creative hunger for great music to the Austin City Limits stage for his second performance on the show.
Airs Saturday, at 8pm on Channel 5.
