Raised right here in Columbus, Ohio, Yoakam started his career in the mid-80’s. His unique sound and individuality follow in the footsteps of his icons, Elvis, Merle and Buck, yet preserve him as a one of a kind artist. Yoakam has proved over the years that he is more than a country artist with a guitar, boots and cowboy hat; he is one of country music’s biggest influences. Dwight Yoakam has achieved many awards in his career including two Grammy Awards and 21 Grammy Award nominations. His most recent album, 3 Pears, released in 2012, has landed him the number 18 spot on the American Songwriter’s Top 50 Albums of 2012.
