Blind Items Revealed - Kindness

June 26, 2014

This always in my mind A list entertainer(singer) but more like a B lister usually finds himself played on country radio stations, but he doesn't really fit anywhere. Linked with lots of famous actresses, this singer left a tip of $5K last week so his waitress would be able to buy a car to replace the one that broke down and had her walking several miles to work each day and her neighbors picking up her kids from school.

Lyle Lovett

Lyle. You weren't blessed with the handsome stick. But you were with the nice one. Whatever possessed you to marry Julia?

derek harvey said...

that's awesome. I love when people help out others in their own community

Renoblondee said...

Awwww. Sweet. My first instinct was him but wanted it to be Kid.

Tigercat said...

Very cool, Lyle.

bellaluna said...

He's always struck me as a nice guy. This just proves he is.

OneEyeCharlie said...

He is incredible in concert. No flashpots and lasers; just a very good, professional set.

Ray Nicolet said...

Claps for Lyle!

Steampunk Jazz said...

Very sweet of him to care, that he didn't "leak" it to the paps says alot... What a great thing to do

Steampunk Jazz said...

Just proving that opposites attract! : D

surfer said...

Violet - the food in your avi looks good. Roast potatoes?

derek harvey said...

@sugarbr haha I guess so. Needed to change it to something a little more sensual and that shows the 2 sides of my personality ; )

MeanieRhysie said...

I <3 Lyle. Lyle in a kindness, even better!

@Violet, he's not attractive by "most" standards, but there's always been... that something about him. Oh yes, I would! :)

Steampunk Jazz said...

Totally agree Rhysie! That man sings with his whole face, and yet so still...

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

Lyle Lovett's right beside me with his hand upon my thigh. Julia Roberts's is right behind me saying, "girl, don't even try!" (Alt lyrics)

sugarbread maker said...

@derek.. what crack and champagne??

Dena said...

Nailed it!

warmislandsun said...

Does he always carry that much cash around? I just don't believe this story.

sandybrook said...

Hope you have a hit record soon Lyle!

derek harvey said...

@sugarbr breakfast of champions ; )

OneEyeCharlie said...

I don't think he needs it, Sandy. He's not doing arena shows, but his concerts sell out consistently. He plays an outdoor venue by me every year, and every year tickets are gone within minutes. At $80 a pop, and roughly 10,000 attending; that's a decent chunk of change. I don't know what his percentage cut is, and obviously the other members of the band need to get paid, but that's still a nice paycheck for several hours of work.

Another heartwarming blind- even better than the kindness reveal on the 4th about Arnold and Vannessa Williams.

kelli_girl said...

Love me some Lovett.

auntliddy said...

Now thats a dude. On the path for sure! Love his music too.

Halfmad said...

Met him years ago when I worked at a venue where he was playing. Could not have been nicer and sweeter. And actually was very handsome in a charismatic way in person -- smelled nice, too.

AKM said...

What a guy! My mom and grandma were on a flight with him to TX, and they wouldn't even say hi or smile ay him! I told them that he seemed like a sweet normal guy who would have smiled right back at two old ladies who were just being nice and not all up in his face. We saw him pull up in just a van or something, and the way he smiled so genuinely at the guys helping him with his bags, I knew he had to be good people. I'm dying to know just what he saw in Julia, you know?!

rajahcat said...

what a great guy

glad Julia didn't ruin him

CanadianMiss said...

What an ass! He could have bought winter coats for at least 100 hairless cats with all that money. Ugh.

Snapdragon said...

@warmislandsun - he could have written a check, or filled in the "tip" portion using a card.

This is lovely. :)

Gil said...

Outstanding!! Lyle rules!
