1Both my parents worked, so I was home alone a lot, and I would listen to their records. They belonged to the Columbia House record club, so they had records!
2I enjoyed hearing people do their own songs. I became attracted to singer-songwriters. I became interested in them as people; was curious about what they wanted to say.
3It's difficult to get started-when it comes to dealing with an unknown quantity, people are reluctant to trust their own opinion. It helps if two or three people give you a boost.
4Somehow you can tell the difference when a song is written just to get on the radio and when what someone does is their whole life. That comes through in Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Willie Nelson. There is no separating their life from their music.
5I've been lucky to be able to make the records I've wanted to make. The record company has never pressured me to cut certain songs.
6It's important to be successful enough to be able to keep doing what you love.
7It's really a lot easier to write about things that are problematic. Who wants to hear how happy you are?
8Singing your own songs is all about individual expression.
9You can't second-guess your audience. You can only do what you think is right. If you do that, your audience will appreciate you.
10Fortunately, I've never had a job.
11I am limited by what I can think of to do-my choices are not so great.
12I don't feel like I'm on a mission. I'm trying to play music that I like to play and like to listen to.
13I played guitar when I was young and never really considered it as a way to make a living.
14I'm really in no danger of being perceived as a famous movie actor!
1Suffers seriously from bovophobia (fear of cattle).
2Graduated from Klein High School, the first high school built in the Klein Independent School District, named for his ancestor, Adam Klein. All High Schools in the District include the Klein name. Other high schools in the district include Klein Forest, Klein Oak, and Klein Collins.
3Originally slated to play one of the singing cowboys in A Prairie Home Companion (2006).
4Inducted into the Texas Film Hall of Fame on March 10, 2006. The other inductees were Matthew McConaughey, Kris Kristofferson, JoBeth Williams and Cybill Shepherd.
5Engaged to April Kimble. [2006]
6His great-great-grandfather, Adam Klein, was a founding father of Klein, Texas, where Lyle was born and now resides.
7He once bought a Cadillac El Dorado from Hunter S. Thompson.
8He graduated from Texas A&M University with BA's in German (1981) and Journalism (1980).
9Was trampled by a bull on his Klein, Texas, ranch; needed surgery to repair his mauled right leg. He has since (understandably) possessed a morbid fear of cattle. [April 2002]
