A bluegrass visionary and country music pioneer, multi Grammy Award winner Dwight Yoakam has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide. A cowboy hat-wearing singer-songwriter, when Yoakam performs, awards follow, including the Americana Music Association’s Artist of the Year and his recent induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. He’s a frequent visitor at the top of the charts, as nearly 40 of Yoakam’s singles have landed on the Billboard, with 14 peaking in the Top 10. Not to mention, his 12 gold albums and nine platinum or multi-platinum albums.
In 2016, Yoakam released his bluegrass album Swimmin’ Pools, Movie Stars … on Sugar Hill Records, which features a band of bluegrass luminaries and boasts a collection of reinterpreted favorites from his catalogue, as well as a cover of Prince’s “Purple Rain.” His most recent work includes the song “Pretty Horses” and also “Then Came Monday,” which was written with Chris Stapleton.
Delving deep into what makes music great, Yoakam launched his self-curated SiriusXM channel, Dwight Yoakam and The Bakersfield Beat ‘Where Country Went Mod’ in April of 2018. The channel celebrates the Bakersfield sound and those whom it has inspired, featuring guests that include the likes of Post Malone, Lukas Nelson, Beck, Chris Hillman, Jakob Dylan, Mike Nesmith and Micky Dolenz, Dave Alvin and Jackie DeShannon, among others.
Yoakam also is a film and television star who has appeared in more than 40 feature films and is also the most frequent musical guest in the history of The Tonight Show.
