Few entertainers have attained the iconic status of Dwight Yoakam. Perhaps that is because so few have consistently and repeatedly met the high standard of excellence delivered by the Kentucky native no matter what his endeavor. His name immediately conjures up compelling, provocative images: A pale cowboy hat with the brim pulled low; poured-on blue jeans; intricate, catchy melodies paired with poignant, brilliant lyrics that mesmerize with their indelible imprint. Then there’s Yoakam the actor, who seemingly melts into his roles, impressively standing toe-to-toe with some of the world’s top thespians: Jodie Foster, Tommy Lee Jones, Forest Whitaker, Nicholas Cage. Add to that Yoakam the entrepreneur and you have a singular talent without peer.
It’s no wonder that Time Magazine dubbed Yoakam “A Renaissance Man,” or that Don McLeese, in his 2012 biography “Dwight Yoakam: A Thousand Miles From Nowhere,” called him a “musician who has established himself as a visionary beyond time” and “an artist who could title an album Tomorrow’s Sounds Today and deliver it.” But that’s getting ahead of the story.
Dwight Yoakam is available for corporate events, private shows, milestone celebrations (birthday, anniversary), fundraisers, festivals, and more.
