Vince Gill, Lyle Lovett Reunite For “Songs and Stories” Tour
Charismatic Performers Will Showcase Their Musical Versatility
Nashville, TN – September 21, 2015 -- The
always witty Vince Gill and the reliably wry Lyle Lovett are reuniting
for a 13 city tour that will take place through February and March
2016. After teaming up for a series of concerts earlier this year, Gill
and Lovett saw that the shows were so successful that they decided to
continue the tour.
A reviewer for Elmore Magazine
raved, “The evening reminded me of the Rat Pack, with pals Dean Martin
and Frank Sinatra doing comedy and music and having a great time. . . .

says. "No big bands. I saw James Taylor once with just him and his
guitar, and after that show I felt like I knew him a whole lot better
than I ever did before. That's what'll happen between Lyle and me, too,
and I'm looking forward to it."
