Lyle Lovett: “People mean well, but people in other parts of the country, they just…"
[he stops talking and takes a drink]
I love his hair, especially when he hasn’t cut it in a long while and it rises from his scalp like a cumulus cloud. I love his crooked smile that says, yeah. There’s a subtle way he moves to the rhythm when he’s playing that’s intriguing. I didn’t quite understand him marrying Julia Roberts – of course I don’t know either of them personally and it’s none of my business anyway – but he sure loves his home state proudly.
He’s my favorite singer of country western music, maybe any sort of music because he tells great stories in his songs – my favorite being “Cowboy Man” or maybe “You Sure Are Ugly from the Front” or maybe “God Will But I Won’t.”
Or maybe my favorite is one particular Lyle Lovett song that gave me the answer for non-Texans who make those condemning, blanket statements about
“That’s Right, You’re Not From Texas,”
