Why see Dwight Yoakam?

Country Icon Dwight Yoakam hits the road

The young whippersnappers of modern Country owe a lot to Dwight Yoakam. Once shunned by the Nashville elite, the pioneering singer-songwriter is credited with paving the way for Country music's acceptance in the mainstream. His 'hillbilly honkey tonk stylings' earned him a following of fans that called themselves 'Cow-Punks' in retaliation to the polite Country Pop of the late '70s.

It wasn't long before Hollywood came calling and along with international recognition came 5 Billboard number 1 albums, 12 Gold and 9 Platinum records as well as 2 Grammy Awards. With his cowboy hat tilted at a rakish angle, the 60+-year-old has still got the spark that has electrified his stellar four-decade career. The veteran's vocals are as smooth, earthy and soulful as ever, with a dose of that Country twang thrown in for good measure!

Excellent, Fun Show

Traveled to Nee Orleans from Illinois and saw the concert in a cool old theatre. It was a really fun show, Dwight’s voice is as good as ever, great crowd interaction and lots of energy. Eugene Edward’s is an amazing guitarist and showman as is the multi-instrumentalist, can’t keep track of all the instruments he played. It was a great night on the soundboard. Quality was clear and solos were very evident. It was a great-into-it crowd. ... Read more

DY in Charlotte

Saw him and The Mavericks at Skyla Amphitheater. Sound mix was not good. Lots of feedback squealing at one point. Did not have that during the opening act The Mavericks who were absolutely awesome btw. Dwight was good. His band was great especially lead guitar and instrumentalist ( he played several: steel, fiddle, dobro, keys …). Was disappointed he rushed through first four songs without barely taking a breath. He cut 6 songs from the playlist from the night before. I guess he had a flight to catch? His playing and voice were great but the excessive volume and terrible mix was a serious distraction. He played maybe just over an hour which was also disappointing. ... Read more

Great Night with a Legend

Dwight and team delivered on a great performance Friday night in Milwaukee. Eugene Edwards was an unexpected treat delivering on the great Telecaster sound and showmanship. The upper balcony sound had muddy mids which was disappointing. ... Read more
