Although some may know him best for his tall mop of hair and his short-lived marriage to actress Julia Roberts (1993–95), Lyle Lovett is an award-winning musician with a successful acting career. His music has earned him four Grammy Awards, most notably the 1990 Grammy for Best Male Country Vocal Performance for Lyle Lovett and His Large Band, as well as 1995's Best Pop Vocal Collaboration for “Funny How Time Slips Away,” which he recorded with soul legend Al Green. Lovett branched out into acting, appearing in Robert Altman films The Player (1992), Short Cuts (1993), Ready-to-Wear (Pret-a-Porter) (1994), and Cookie's Fortune (1999). Following on the heels of his album The Road to Ensenada (1997), for which he received a Grammy Award for Best Country Album, Lovett appeared in the feature film The Opposite of Sex (1998).
