With his roots firmly planted in bluegrass and honky tonk music, Dwight Yoakam will bring his own brand of “hillbilly” music to the Community Arts Center on Wednesday, May 10, 2017. He has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, and he is a 21-time nominated, multiple Grammy Award winner. He has 12 gold albums and nine platinum or multi-platinum albums, with five of those albums topping Billboard’s Country Albums chart, and another 14 landing in the Top 10. Nearly 40 of Yoakam’s singles have charted, with 14 peaking in the Top 10.

He received the Artist of the Year award at the 2013 Americana Music Honors & Awards ceremony, the most prestigious award offered by the organization.

Yoakam recently released his first-ever bluegrass album Swimmin’ Pools, Movie Stars… on Sugar Hill Records. Featuring a band of bluegrass luminaries, this album boasts a collection of reinterpreted favorites from his catalogue, as well as a cover of Prince’s “Purple Rain.”

 Join us for a night of pure country music as Dwight Yoakam lights up the CAC stage!
