story
Dwight Yoakam’s brilliant new album Second Hand Heart, released in April 2015, takes the pioneering honky-tonker back to Warner Bros./Reprise, where he began his major-label recording career thirty years ago. His distinctive, supple vocals, accented with his Kentucky croon, sound as strong today as they did on his debut, 1985’s Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc. Etc. That release immediately yielded hit singles, and over the course of some 21 albums – totaling more than 25 million records sold worldwide – Yoakam has continued to passionately sing, write, and play music brimming with hard country and rock & roll. Second Hand Heart was self-produced by Yoakam, and reflects where he’s been, but, even more so, where he’s going: the opening track In Another World “guided the rest of the album,” says Yoakam. “It became its statement – about surviving and hope.”
