Lyle Lovett released Pontiac, his second album, on January 11, 1988. Lyle Lovett's albums tend to oscillate between sounding more jazzy/bluesy and more country. Pontiac is largely on the country side of things and highlights Lovett’s vocal timing and craftily written lyrics. This one is one of his best.

Its tracks are:
If I Had A Boat
Give Back My Heart
I Loved You Yesterday
Walk Through the Bottomland
L.A. County
She's No Lady
Black and Blue
Simple Song
She's Hot to Go
