American singer-songwriter Dwight Yoakam has conveyed exceptional approach to the traditional honky tonk making him extend beyond the predictable country music singer. He’s been much-admired since the early 1980’s when he released his debut album “Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc., Etc.” which became one of his three consecutive no. 1 Billboard Country Albums. The first single “Honky Tonk Man” peaked at no. 3 on the country charts and the follow-up title song at number 4. Yoakam has recorded 13 studio albums, 5 of which was no. 1 on the Billboard, he’s sold more than 25 million records and has won a Grammy for Best Male Country Vocal Performance in 1993 for the song “Ain’t That Lonely Yet”. The song was from his 5th album “This Time” which has been certified triple platinum and includes chart-buster tracks “A Thousand Miles from Nowhere”, “Fast As You” and “Try Not to Look So Pretty”. His most recent release 3 Pears (2012) was quite prolific, peaking at no. 18 on the Billboard 200, 3rd on the US Billboard Top Country Albums chart and 2nd on the Australian Country Albums Chart. It has 12 songs including “A Heart Like Mine”, “Take Hold of My Hand” and “Trying”.
