Lyle Lovett

Lyle Lovett is one of the few alt.country-stars who succesfully blends irony, melancholy and uncut anger in his songs. Thanks to the mighty Stubby (the best Christmasblog out there), I know now that Lyle recorded a few seasonal songs. Two covers with the lovely Kat Edmondson, one original. In which he sings about an encounter with 'a hooker at the grocery store', the 'girl with the holiday smile.' Stubby also mentioned another Christmas(-y) song Lovett recorded way back in the 90s, the absolutely beautiful (yet unsettling, but hey, it's Lyle) Christmas Morning.

Thanks for the kind words. But how can I have "the best Christmasblog out there" when YOU have "the best Christmasblog out there"?
