Though the obvious intent of this special Lyle Lovett and Vince Gill match-up was to provide an evening of musical entertainment by two of the finest Americana-country song-writers of this era, Bill Maher, the renowned comic who graced the same Thomas Wolfe Auditorium stage just 24 hours prior, would have been in envy of the laughter that filled the theater between songs (not to mention during two or three songs, particularly by Mr. Lovett). These two men not only brilliantly complemented each other's immense singing and guitar picking talent throughout the show, but they also provided a comedic team reminiscent of Johnny Carson and Ed McMahon.

 Each artist brought their songs, their guitars, their stories, and their sense of humor for a two-hour-plus set-list that featured the best of their own solo works, with a bit of history mixed in. FRF photographer David Simchock was there to capture the show from the crowd's perspective.
