A Class By Himself
One morning in 1993, my clock radio, which was set to a country music station, woke me to the sound of the song "Fast As You." I had only fairly recently gotten "into" country music, and I certainly hadn't heard anything like the distinctive voice on the radio that morning! I was immediately "hooked," and soon thereafter purchased a cassette of Dwight Yoakam"s "This Time" album. After that, there was no stopping me, I accumulated every Dwight recording I could find, which at that time were on cassette, and I later purchased every one again on CD. I have had the pleasure and privilege of seeing Dwight perform live several times, most recently at the Greene County fair in Springfield, MO in Aug. 2011. I can honestly say that every one of these shows was truly excellent, Dwight just seems to get better with time! He is an incredibly talented, unique artist, and truly is "in a class by himself"!
