– Vince Gill and Lyle Lovett will reunite for a 13-city tour this winter.
After teaming up for concerts earlier this year, Gill and Lovett decided to continue the tour.
Each show will be a series of intimate solo and duo performances, during which the artists will serve as their own accompanists.
"For a night like this, there is no plan," Gill said. "I know Lyle won't have a plan, and I won't either. What he plays will inspire me and probably vice-versa. It'll be like playing ping-pong. Whatever song he chooses to sing will inspire the next song that comes out of me."
"I enjoy shows that are not planned out," Lovett said. "This will be two songwriters in the round. It's informal, so there will be lots of ad-libbing. It will be like little snapshots of our experiences."
"Just two guys sitting on stools, telling stories and singing songs," Gill said. "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."
