Vince Gill and Lyle Lovett Reunite For “Songs and Stories” Tour
Charismatic Performers Will Showcase Their Musical Versatility
Nashville, TN – December 5, 2016 — The
always witty Vince Gill and the reliably wry Lyle Lovett are reuniting
for a nine city tour that will take place  March 2017.  After teaming up
for a series of concerts in 2015 and 2016, Gill and Lovett saw that the
shows were so successful that they decided to extend 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.”
