    West Michigan country-music fans were in for a real treat in November, because Dwight served up some hot new food items for the Meijer stores.

    Dwight went to Grand Rapids to promote his new album, "Dwight Sings Buck" -- a tribute to the late country star Buck Owens -- and to promote his Bakersfield Biscuits line of frozen food. The Meijer chain is selling the albums and the food line.

    Dwight maintains all the creative control for logo designs and comes up with names for the food items, which include Lanky Link Sausage, Chicken Lickin's Buffalo Style Bites and Chicken Lickin' Chicken Fries.

    Fans who attend his appearance in November at Meijer were treated to samples of chicken fries, and Yoakam said he is excited about the introduction of Take 'Ems to his food line.

    Including Lil' Joes, Lil' Chicks and Breakfast Burritos, the individually wrapped items are called Take 'Ems "so you can grab it and run."
