A bull broke country singer/actor Lyle Lovett's right leg in two places and fractured his thumb Wednesday at his uncle's farm in Klein, Texas, near Houston, Reuters reports.

Said to be in "good condition" after an emergency operation at Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston, Lovett will be "back out there playing shows before you know it," says his tour manager, James Gilmer.

The 44-year-old Lovett and his uncle, Calvin Klein (no, not that Calvin Klein), were in a cattle pen with the bull they've raised since it was a calf when it struck them, according to Gilmer.

While Lovett received the brunt of the damage, Klein suffered minor rib injuries.

Lovett, who was once married to actress Julia Roberts, is a three-time Grammy winner and has starred in such films as The Player (with Roberts), The Opposite of Sex and upcoming film The New Guy.
