Patty Griffin



Patty Griffin is a Grammy award winning singer songwriter who over the course of two decades has crafted ten classic studio albums and two live collections.

Her 1996 debut, Living With Ghosts, and its 1998 follow-up, Flaming Red are considered seminal works of modern folk and Americana.

Robert Earl Keen



Robert Earl Keen sold out the Top Hat in 2015 and played to a sold out crowd at the Wilma in 2018 with friend and collaborator Lyle Lovett. REK recorded his first album in 1984, and has gone on to release more than 15 albums. He’s regarded as one of the Lone Star State’s most treasured singer-songwriters. He was inducted into the Texas Heritage Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2012.

In March 2015, REK was recognized as the first recipient of BMI’s official Troubadour Award. He’s also an active member of NARAS and was invited to be a participant in the prestigious “Grammys On The Hill” where he sang the National Anthem at the opening ceremony and was a member.

Lyle Lovett and his Large Band



Lyle and his Large Band will make their return to KettleHouse Amphitheater after previously playing the grand opening of the Amp back in July 2017. Earlier this year, he performed at the Wilma with John Hiatt to a sold out crowd. It seems like Montana has a special affinity for the “Cowboy Man,” one that is certainly shared by Lyle himself. He’s frequently noted his love for the Logjam concerts at the Wilma and KettleHouse Amphitheater.

Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lyle Lovett has won four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, was named Texas State Musician, and has released 14 albums.
