Dwight’s New Album, ‘Swimmin’ Pools, Movie Stars…” Available Now!

on September 23, 2016 - 11:43am

Dwight’s new album, Swimmin Pools, Movie Stars is available today!

The 12-track album features bluegrass reinventions from his extensive catalog and one notable cover – Prince’s “Purple Rain.”

This project reflects the love for bluegrass music that Dwight developed at an early age in Kentucky, which has inspired him for many years.

“Not only is this album a chance for Yoakam to prove that his material does in fact work in a bluegrass context, but he also reinterprets his songs with some of the genre’s most celebrated pickers behind him…” - NPR

Get the new album via iTunes or Amazon!
