While the country music star, 50, voiced a recurring character on TV's King of the Hill, co-stars in Wyatt Earp's Revenge, now to DVD, and portrays a truck driver in the upcoming thriller The Healer, the singing still comes first.

"There are times when my schedule can't accommodate both music and the rest of what I do," says the Springhill, La., native. "Would I ever focus more on that and walk away from what brought me to the dance? No. I've always chosen to stay with what I do best, and I think that's the smartest thing I can do."
