Over the years, Lyle Lovett has moved away from being a country-music singer-songwriter to more of a genre-hopping mad scientist along the lines of fellow Texan(and Western swing legend Bob Wills). His 14th and most recent album, 2012’s Release Me, signals the end of his relationship with Curb Records. As such, he’s recorded a hodgepodge of songs and while only two are Lovett originals, the alt-country icon does readings of songs penned by Townes Van Zandt, Chuck Berry, Jesse Winchester and Frank Loesser. (Also appearing on August 24 @ Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center, 76 Main St., 631- 288-1500 www.whbpac.org)
