LYLE LOVETT's consistent blend of country, folk, blues, gospel and his own style of Texas swing is no more apparent than on his 2007 release, It's Not Big It's Large, a tongue-in-cheek reference to his Large Band. Lovett and his crew roll into town Sun., JULY 6, in support of his new album, his first effort in four years and the second for the Lost Highway label. It's a rather ruminative affair for the 50-year-old Texan; on the third track, "All Downhill From Here," he muses, "I've had an excellent time so far/There's only one thing that I fear/I've been up so long on this lucky star/It could be all downhill from here." But considering how easy it comes to him, you get the feeling this four-time Grammy winner's got miles to go before he sleeps. $37.50-$67.50. 7:30 p.m. Chastain Park Amphitheater, 4469 Stella Drive. 404-249-6400. www.ticketmaster.com.
