Dwight Yoakam is a perfect combination for me when it comes to a country musician.  He’s got that old-style honky tonk way about him, he readily salutes those who set the standard before him, he knows how to rock out, he writes songs that seem to have his signature sound all over them, and he’s got that sound in his singing voice that is pure country.

If you’ve ever seen him in movies like “Sling Blade” and “Panic Room,” you know he plays one whale of a bad guy.

If you’ve ever seen or heard his concert performances, you also know that he’s a pretty humble individual, showing great appreciation to those who’ve supported him through his years of boot-scootin’ entertaining.

That makes him very cool in my book.  Rock on, Dwight.
