American Songwriter recently featured Dwight's hit "A Thousand Miles From Nowhere" in their "Behind The Song" series. The nearly 20 year old heartbreak song from the albumThis Time continues to stand as strong as anything in Dwight's catalog. American Songwriter exclaims, "Pretty much everyone experiences the pain of love at some time in their lives, but seldom has the agony of having had one's soul gutted been communicated in a song the way Yoakam does in this one." "A Thousand Miles From Nowhere" sat at #2 on the country charts in the U.S. and at #3 in Canada in 1993.
