Lyle, Emmylou, Eminem and 50 Cent
What can these artists possibly have in common? Well, they'll all be in the area this year and we've got information to share about their shows.
There hasn't been a lot of publicity about it, but talented Texas songman Lyle Lovett will play a show in D.C. at the end of the month.

The show is a benefit for the Gladney Center for Adoption. Tickets start at $35 and are available online at www.gladneyfund.org/lyle or by calling 1-888-966-4673.
