Dwight Yoakam Background
Dwight Yoakam spent most
of his childhood in Ohio, where it quickly became apparent that the young Yoakam had a knack for performing. Not only did
he start to pick up various instruments and test out his vocals, but he also became involved in school drama productions,
showcasing his talent for entertaining audiences at a very young age. Outside of school, Yoakam continued indulging in his
passion for music by joining local garage bands. By the time he had graduated high school, he was one of the most promising
musicians in the area. He briefly attended Ohio State University before dropping out to pursue his music career full time.
After moving to Nashville in 1977, Yoakam realized that he wasn't "marketable" in the current country music world. His unique
brand of honky tonk music wasn't what the Nashville record labels were looking for, so he decided to pack up once again and
move out to Los Angeles.
While in Los Angeles, Yoakam started playing at punk rock venues throughout the city. Although
the patrons at these venues were used to hearing hard rock and punk rock performances, everyone was pleasantly surprised by
Yoakam's roots/country rock sound, and he soon developed quite a rabid fan base throughout Southern California. He released
his debut album, Guitars Cadillacs Etc. Etc. (1986) on the record label, Reprise Records. Before he knew it, Yoakam was a
smash hit amongst both country fans and rock fans, and music lovers couldn't get enough of his unique and captivating sound.
For the past several decades, Dwight Yoakam has been a staple figure on the country scene, and he isn't going anywhere anytime
soon. He has released one hit song after another, and he has scored over a dozen Grammy nominations, two of which he has won:
