TONIGHT’S THE NIGHT! Legendary country musician Dwight Yoakam will be hitting the stage at Wild Bill’s in Duluth. He has recorded over 21 albums, racked up over 30 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts and has sold an impressive 25 million records. His 1986 debut LP Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc., Etc. launched his career, and he has been enjoying a incredible ride since then.
Country greats such as Johnny Cash and Chris Isaak have acknowledged Yoakam’s talent and creativity. His song Honky Tonk Man was the first country song ever played on MTV. Yoakam hasn’t always stuck solely to the “country music” genre and has covered many different songs from rock & roll, punk, and the blues. In 2011, he recorded a duet with pop starlet Michelle Branch. The song called Long Goodby” was available as a free download on Branch’s website.
Also appearing is Atlanta’s own Tyler Reeve. He draws influence from the “good ‘ol country” such as Willie Nelson, Hank Williams Jr, and Waylon Jennings. Reeve and his band always put on a full of energy, great show and will be a perfect combination with Yoakam. Reeve’s toured with many national country acts like Montgomery Gentry, Jamey Johnson, Little Big Town, Eric Church, Jack Ingram, and Eli Young Band. Go find him on Facebook and “LIKE” him!
