"When I went to Nashville in 1984, there was a huge disparity between radio hits and numbers of records sold. People could have big No. 1 records and not sell any records. I think they were trying anything, and I was lucky enough to get in on that. . . . Maybe my songs require a bit more from the listener; maybe they really aren't as good for mainstream country radio as much as they are for other types of radio." --Lyle Lovett to Lisa Robinson in DAILY NEWS, July 4, 1997

"I would write a hit song if I could. I feel like my work is much more a product of my limitations than any conscious choice to be so high-minded as to not be on the radio." --Lovett to US, August 1996

"All my life people have said I was shy, but I've never felt particularly shy. I know I don't have the kind of personality tha walks into a room and commands everyone's attention. Plue, I'd much rather be quiet until I get to know someone a little bit." --Lovett to NEW YORK NEWSDAY, January 3, 1995

"I'm sort of an oddball-weirdo guy--that's the appeal I've got!" --Lovett to Sam Robards in INTERVIEW, May 1994
