    Over the weekend, Dwight Yoakam lit up a crowd of about 2,000 at the Centennial Rodeo Music Stampede in Salinas, California .The two-time Grammy winner set cowboy hats a-bobbing and cowboy boots tapping as cheers filled the Salinas Sports Complex's rear softball field. Ken Adams of Salinas said he's been excited about the show ever since it was announced last month."I saw that and said, 'we gotta watch Dwight Yoakam for sure,'" Adams said. "Dwight Yoakam is a phenomenal guitar player — but he's probably an even better actor. Oh my God. He is THE guy in 'Panic Room.'" Yoakam entertained not only his biggest fans, but made some new ones in the process. "We have no idea who that is," said Veronica Stevenson of Hollister, who attended with her sister, Eugenia Sanchez. "We just came out to have fun." For the third song of his set, Yoakam turned up the charm.


    "Thanks for coming tonight, Salinas," he called over the fans pressing close to the stage. "It is a pleasure to be in this part of my adopted state."
