From the venue:If every performer in country music was as cool as Dwight Yoakam the world would be overcome with a new ice age. Since the early â€™80s, Yoakam has stood apart from the maddening crowd with his unique style of thoughtful, progressive songwriting, expanding the essence of tradition into wholly new directions. His lyrical style is poetic and real, and his stage presence is dynamic. Yoakam has outlasted one trend after another, proving that talent overrides shtick every time.
