Lyle Lovett & His Large Band to Perform at Acme’s Flintfields, August 8

The legendary Lyle Lovett makes his way to northern Michigan for one special night, Friday, August 8 at Flintfield in Acme. The show begins at 5pm. General admission tickets are $39; VIP tickets are $95 and includes chair seating under the one-of-a-kind 20,000-square-foot grand tent, Olympic Gran Prix Ring Viewing, VIP restrooms and a hydration station.

A singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Lovett has appeared in 13 feature films, and on stage and television. In addition to his four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was recently named the Texas State Musician.

In addition to the music of Lyle Lovett, families will enjoy carriage horse tours and horse riding demos at the famed Flintfields – home of the Horse Shows by the Bay. Classic grilled local fare, beer, wine and soda will also be available for purchase.

On Saturday, August 9, the festivities at Flintfields continues with Cars, Eats and Beats – featuring hundreds of specialty cars, food and entertainment including Delilah DeWylde and The Lost Boys, the Corvairs and headliner Commander Cody and the Lost Planet Airmen – whose hit song “Hotrod Lincoln” is the #1 All-time car song.
