Lyle Lovett: The World's Greatest Lover

Mal Peachey, Country Music International, September 1994

Dour of face, frizzy of hair, sharp of wit. He came from Texas, wrote the song, played the guitar and got the girl. Now he's Julia Roberts' husband first and a supremely talented tunesmith second. Or is he?

Total word count of piece: 1969
