    Q: What is Dwight Yoakam up to these days? —Mary Penedo, Cranston, R.I.

    A: He’s busy balancing his music and acting careers. “I don’t talk about it much, but I’m doing some fun stuff,” Yoakam, 54, teases about his upcoming album. “We’re hoping to get it out early next year, but I’m still working on it so I haven’t looked up to think about stuff like scheduling yet.” In his latest film, Dirty Girl, which is in theaters now, he plays an offbeat and disturbing character, a type he’s become known for through the years. “Prior to Sling Blade, I had done less antagonistic characters, but once you do something that works very well, people tend to want to sing along with that song,” he explains.
