John Hiatt releases best of compilation, tours with Lyle Lovett (2013)

John Hiatt, who has been hailed by the Los Angeles Times as “one of rock’s most astute singer-songwriters of the last 40 years,” will release a Best Of compilation titled Here To Stay – Best of 2000-2012 on November 11 on New West Records. The 17-track collection is comprised of key singles and live show favorites such as “Crossing Muddy Waters,” “Master Of Disaster,” “What Love Can Do,” “We’re Alright Now” and the previously unreleased title track, “Here To Stay,” featuring Smokin’ Joe Bonamassa on guitar. Hiatt, who has been on tour since June in support of the critically acclaimed album, Mystic Pinball, reunited with longtime friend Lyle Lovett last week for the aptly titled tour “An Acoustic Evening with Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt.” The run, which began October 22 in Vermont, will take the pair across the East Coast, Midwest and Southwest before wrapping up on the West Coast.
