Since the start of his music career, Dwight Yoakam has proven he’s more than just another guy with a guitar and a cowboy hat. He’s risen from hot country star to one of country music’s biggest influences with two Grammys and a staggering 21 nominations. His current album 3 Pears is featured in American Songwriter’s top 50 albums of 2012, coming in at number 18. In a glowing review of the album, American Songwriter went on to say “Seven years is a long time between albums of original material, but Yoakam’s return to old label Warner Brothers was a thrilling, unqualified success. His new songs beautifully navigate the fertile territory between Rubber Soul pop, Byrds’ styled country and the reverbed Bakersfield twang that has always been a mainstay of his sound.”
Like the icons he so admires –Elvis, Merle, Buck– Dwight is one of a kind. Full of twang and truth, his music is a potent blend of country and rock that is fiercely independent yet honors his musical predecessors. Honky Tonk Man, Please Please Baby, Little Sister and Thousand Miles from Nowhere are just a few of Dwight’s more than 30 chart-topping singles. Don’t miss these and all your other favorites when Dwight Yoakam takes the stage live at The Island on Friday, January 11!
