Carrying on what has become an annual Bass Hall tradition, Texas singer/songwriter 
Lyle Lovett returns for one night only - a show that will surely sell out. Lovett will bring along his dusty odes to Texas and stories about the left-of-center characters who populate it, along with his long-running backup band, and, of course, his wry and dry sense of humor.
