{     Dwight Yoakam on Fader.com     }    

http://www.crowndozen.com/main/archives/upload/2006/10/dwight-thumb.jpg theFader.com posted this interview with Dwight Yoakam the other day and it just hit me as sort of a required-reading kinda thing for anyone that has any interest in American roots music. Fader sums it up best in their introduction to the interview:
"...in half an hour or less, for no other reason than because he wanted to, (Dwight) ran us on a conversational journey out of the hills of Appalachian Kentucky where he grew up and into Ohio, then paused to give us the entire history of all genres of American roots music (without forgetting our friends from the British Invasion) through the lens of the 1950's radio of his childhood, then brought us out to Bakersfield, CA and a few miles south to Los Angeles to paint a picture of the scene there that gave birth to his career, beginning in the early ’80s."
Seriously good stuff y'all. Dwight has always been the cool outsider of country music, rock music, roots music... all music really, and he can back up all that swagger with more knowledge of where American music came from than most anyone else I've ever read. I've always respected the guy and I think you will too after reading the interview.

I love Dwight Yoakam's Just looking for a hit. I have the CD and DVD and all his other CDs and DVDs. I love his singing, he is my favorite singer. I would really love to write to him.
