Born in the coal mining town of Pikeville, Kentucky in 1956, Dwight Yoakam has soared from being a rising country music singer to one of its greatest crossover success stories. During his childhood in Ohio, Yoakam was influenced by artists he discovered in his mother's record collection, especially traditional country like Buck Owens, Johnny Cash and Hank Williams. In high school, he played everything from Rock and Roll to Country in a variety of local garage bands. He moved to Nashville after graduation with the aim of becoming a recording artist. Not finding much success with the Nashville country music scene, Dwight moved to Los Angeles. Playing his own unique brand of 'hillbilly' honky tonk music in various rock and punk clubs in L.A., he quickly gained a following of not only country music fans, but rockabilly and punk fans as well. In 1984, Dwight Yoakam released the EP 'A Town South of Bakersfield' which resulted in a contract with Reprise Records. Two years later, he released his first full length LP titled 'Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc., Etc.'. The album was a critical success and in 1987, Dwight released the follow-up album, 'Hillbilly Deluxe', which produced multiple Top Ten hits including 'Little Sister', 'Always Late with Your Kisses' and 'Little Ways'. In 1988, he released 'Buenos Noches from a Lonely Room', which contained his first number one hit with 'Streets of Bakersfield', a duet with one of Dwight's greatest influences, Buck Owens. In addition to releasing multiple successful albums and creating his own record label, with his rockabilly covers of songs by artists such as Queen, The Clash, and Elvis Presley, and touring with bands like Hüsker Dü, the Dead Kennedys,and Los Lobos, he gained notoriety across several genres. In 2016, he released his first bluegrass album, 'Swimmin' Pools, Movie Stars'.
