Lyle Lovett

Lyle Lovett, the man whose hair height once rivaled Marge Simpson's, is back with My Baby Don't Tolerate, his first disc of original material since 1996's The Road to EnseƱada. The singer is currently on tour through next month.

ON BEING A HOMETOWN BOY "I live in the Houston area. My family has been there since the 1840s. Being there on an old family place is really important to me, and [this CD] is really about that,"

ON HIS FAMOUS COIF "The hair used to stand up a little taller. I haven't ever really used products. The main thing about having curly hair is that you just always wish it were straight."

ON JOHNNY CASH "Johnny Cash was so nice to me. Rosanne Cash introduced me to him, and I got to do several things with him over the years. I got to make the induction speech when they inducted him into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame."

ON FAITH HILL VERSUS SHANIA TWAIN "I've been around Faith more than I've been around Shania, and I think Faith's a great singer."

ON MP3S VERSUS CDS "I got an iPod during this project, and it was really useful in being able to quickly access things that we were working on. But for personal use, I still carry around CDs. I'm slow to be converted."

ON EX-WIFE JULIA ROBERTS "She's married, and I'm in a committed relationship, so it's none of my business to talk about her."
