''Step Inside This House'' is an album of songs recorded by Lyle Lovett and released in 1998. In contrast with his earlier albums, populated mostly by songs penned by Lovett, ''House'' is a double-length album of cover songs written by fellow Texans.
In choosing songs to record, Lovett favored songwriters whose works influenced his own style instead of immensely popular artists whose name recognition might boost sales. The writers selected include Robert Earl Keen, Michael Martin Murphey, Willis Alan Ramsey, and Guy Clark. The second disc is largely dedicated to songs written by Townes Van Zandt and Walter Hyatt, with the final track being a traditional piece.
The title track was written by Guy Clark but does not appear on any of his albums. After learning the song from Clark, Lovett fell in love with it, and Clark gave him permission to include it on this album. - Wikipedia
