Lovett said the show will feature stripped-down arrangements of his standards as well as a preview of songs from his upcoming Verve Records release scheduled for May.
Lovett’s Acoustic Group features longtime bassist Viktor Krauss, who has played with Lovett since 1994, and violinist Luke Bulla, who’s played and sung in Lovett’s different configurations since 2009. Veteran country and bluegrass multi-instrumentalist Jeff White, who reunited with Lovett for his last Acoustic Group tour in 2020, will play acoustic guitar, mandolin and sing on the tour. Tennessee dobro whiz Josh Swift, who also played on the 2020 Acoustic Group tour, will play dobro and sing.
In addition to 2022 touring and a new album, Lovett’s best-selling album to date, Joshua Judges Ruth, will see a special thirtieth anniversary Vinyl Me Please re-release March 2022 via CURB Records. Further details to come.
“It doesn’t seem possible that was 30 years ago,” Lovett said. “I never dreamed in 1976 when I was 18 and first started performing that in 2022 I’d still be able to do something for a living I love this much. It’s thanks to the people who keep showing up, who keep buying my records and who’ve supported my livestreams during the pandemic. I’m grateful to them, and I want to do my best for them every time.”
