A singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums over three decades. 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. Whether touring as a ‘Duo’ or with his ‘Acoustic Group’ or ‘The Large Band’, Lovett’s live performances show not only the breadth of this Texas legend’s deep talents, but also the diversity of his influences, making him one of the most compelling and captivating musicians in popular music. Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lyle Lovett has evolved into one of music’s most vibrant and iconic performers. Among his many accolades, besides the four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was named Texas State Musician. His works, rich and eclectic, are some of the most beloved of any living artist working today.
ROBERT EARL KEEN
Now three-decades on from the release of his debut album — with well over a dozen other records to his name and thousands of shows under his belt — Keen remains as committed to and inspired by his muse as ever. From his humble beginnings on the Texas folk scene, he’s blazed a peer, critic, and fan-lauded trail that has earned him living-legend status in the Americana music world. And though the Houston native has never worn his Texas heart on his sleeve, he’s long been regarded as one of the Lone Star State’s finest singer-songwriters. He was still a relative unknown in 1989 when his second studio album, West Textures, was released — especially on the triple bill he shared at the time touring with legends Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark — but once fellow Texas icon Joe Ely recorded both “The Road Goes on Forever” and “Whenever Kindness Fails” on his 1993 album, Love and Danger, the secret was out on Keen’s credentials as a songwriter’s songwriter. By the end of the decade, Keen was a veritable household name in Texas, headlining a millennial New Year’s Eve celebration in Austin that drew an estimated 200,000 people. Keen has continued to write, record, and tour across the nation. In 2012 he was inducted into the Texas Heritage Songwriters Hall of Fame along with the late Van Zandt and his long-time friend and college buddy, Lyle Lovett.

DON'T MISS OUT ON TAX CREDITS
Presenting a Tremendous Opportunity For Donors
Hutchinson’s Historic FOX Theatre has received an award of $200,000 in tax credits from the Kansas Department of Commerce’s Community Service Tax Credit Program. The FOX is one of just 23 nonprofit organizations in the state to be awarded these tax credits, which can be used to provide support for capital fundraising projects. The theatre will use funds from donors who wish to take advantage of these credits to help complete our Stage & Technology Improvement Project, which includes repairing the 84- year-old theatre’s damaged and deteriorating stage floor structure while also updating electronic and technical equipment and systems associated with presenting live performing arts events. These repairs and updates have become increasingly critical over the past few years, threatening to prevent the continued operation of the FOX as a live performance venue.
Each year, nonprofit community service organizations submit proposals to the Department of Commerce. If the organization is awarded tax credits, it is then authorized to offer those credits to donors making contributions to the approved fund-raising project. Tax credits for this program are allocated to these groups annually at a rate of 50% in non-rural areas. As an example, qualified donors who give $1,000 to an approved project in a non-rural area would receive a 50 percent (or $500) tax credit against their Kansas income tax liability. If the donor does not have any Kansas tax liability, they will receive a check from the state for the amount of the credit (in this case $500). In addition, the donor would receive federal tax benefits if they itemize, which would again decrease their tax liability.
Donors can take advantage of these credits right now by making a contribution to the theatre, and in exchange receive tax credits valued at 50% of their donation to be used during the next 18 months for their 2015 or 2016 Kansas state income taxes. The is an exceptional opportunity to stretch your giving dollars much further than otherwise possible and make a big difference in the future of Hutchinson’s Historic Fox Theatre, a nationally significant and cherished landmark.
*Tax Credits available on a first come, first served basis.
