Iconic Texan and country/jazz music legend Lyle Lovett has become just as famous for his personal life as he has for his nasaly vocals and lanky frame. His brief marriage to Julia Roberts in the early '90s rocketed him into the Hollywood spotlight, and he's continued polishing his acting chops ever since, starring in a number of Robert Altman's films like Short Cuts and Cookie's Fortune. Lovett also hit up the TV circuit, making appearances on shows like Dharma and Greg and Mad About You. In December 2010, he reunited with Helen Hunt on stage, playing the singing role of Balthasar in the Shakespeare Center of L.A.'s production of Much Ado About Nothing.

You can watch the Grammy-winning musician, screen actor and thespian command the stage at Outlaw Field on Tuesday, June 14, with special guest John Hiatt.

A prolific rock musician and songwriter, Hiatt has released 19 studio albums over his career and had songs covered by everyone from Eric Clapton and Bob Dylan to Mandy Moore and Iggy Pop. Hiatt's highest-charting studio album, Perfectly Good Guitar (1993), was released in the middle of the grunge era and the title track includes the oddly tragic lyrics, "Oh it breaks my heart to see those stars / Smashing a perfectly good guitar."
