Famed country singer-songwriter Lyle Lovett will be the recipient of the Stephen Bruton Award at the 2013 Lone Star Film Festival, the Lone Star Film Society announced last week.

Past recipients of the Stephen Bruton Award have included Willie Nelson, T. Bone Burnett, and Kris Kristofferson.

Although just in its seventh year, the Lone Star Film Festival has consistently grown in size and star-wattage, attracting talents such as Billy Bob Thornton and Robert Duvall. It's likely that it will maintain its substantial influence and contribution to the arts scene of Fort Worth, as this year's upcoming festival is expected to double the amount of admissions it received last year.

The 2013 Lone Star Film Festival will run from November 6 through November 10 in Fort Worth's Sundance Square.
