Board's opinion of Dwight Yoakam....?
Little Sister

I have always enjoyed his music. He is one of my favorite country artists from the 90s.

What say you?

Took me a while to come around but I really like his music now. My 9 yr-old thinks "Waterfall" is one of the top songs ever made.

For me, maybe the premier torchbearer of the great, diverse late 80's-90's in Nashville. Not that he hasn't done quality work since - but that Bakersfield-colored stuff with Anderson was the shite.

If this song won't get you a blow job, few others will.

Not only a huge influence on how I write,but a huge influence on what I started listening to.
He caused me to get into bluegrass,Lefty Frizell,Buck Owens and a lot of other things that I probably wouldn't have listened to otherwise.
Also,the way he treats covers..absolutely genius.
I don't know how anybody could achieve more than what he has,and I don't think he has ever sacrificed his musical integrity,just evolved.

He's awesome, and I've always liked him dating back to my high school years. Got away form him for a while, then got introduced to the acoustic.net disc post-college, and that moved him into my forever rotation.

If you haven't checked out that acoustic.net album, do so.

Thank you for the heads up! I didn't realize he had an acoustic album. I listened to a few tracks...and it is now in my rotation.

While the quality of his material is not limited solely to this album, this is my personal favorite. A great, great album and representative of some of his finest work.
