“Lyle Lovett is in the hospital,” spokeswoman Beth Sartori said. “He came in by ground ambulance. He was in good condition on arrival.”

Sartori said Lovett was taken to surgery and that his family did not authorize her to release any other information, she said. She said she could not describe the injury.

Hermann is the main trauma center at Houston’s world-famous Texas Medical Center, which includes 42 medical institutions.

Lovett’s spokesman Vance Knowles of InKlein Productions didn’t immediately return a call for comment.

Besides his musical career, Lovett is also known for his 21-month marriage to actress Julia Roberts.

Fred Bohlander, who books shows for Lovett, said he had no idea the singer had been hospitalized.

“This is the first I’ve heard of it,” Bohlander said Wednesday evening.

Lovett, a Grammy-award winning singer, was born in Klein, near Houston, and graduated from Texas A&M University before turning to music.

His hits include “If I Were The Woman You Wanted” and “San Antonio Girl.”

Lovett won his first Grammy in 1989 for his album, Lyle Lovett and his Large Band. He won a second Grammy in 1993 for his duet with Al Green, “Funny How Time Slips Away.”

He won two more Grammys in 1994 for “Blues for Dixie” and 1996 for his album The Road to Ensenada.
