''Lyle Lovett'' is Lovett's 1986 eponymous debut album. By the mid-1980s Lovett had already distinguished himself in the burgeoning Texas singer-songwriter scene. He had performed in the New Folk competition at the Kerrville Folk Festival in 1980 and returned to win in 1982. In 1984 Lovett recorded a four song demo with the help of the Phoenix band, J. David Sloan and the Rogues.

His music had begun to be distributed by the ''Fast Folk Musical Magazine''

Nanci Griffith had previously recorded Lovett's "If I Were the Man You Wanted" as "If I Were the ''Woman'' You Wanted" for her 1984 album, ''Once in a Very Blue Moon''. Lovett appears on the album as a vocalist and even appears on the cover of her ''Last of the True Believers'' album. - Wikipedia
