Deadwood, S.D. (03/28/16) – The ‘Hillbilly Deluxe’ is headed for the Hills to hand-deliver his hits as Dwight Yoakam rolls into the Deadwood Mountain Grand Event Center at 8 p.m., Saturday, September 3 with “Guitars, Cadillacs” in tow.
Born in Pikeville, Kentucky and raised in Columbus, Ohio, Dwight Yoakam is a singer-songwriter, actor and film director, most famous for his pioneering country music. Popular since the early 1980s, Yoakam counts 12 gold albums and nine platinum or multi-platinum albums, including the triple-platinum “This Time” to his credit. Five of those albums have topped Billboard’s Country Albums chart with another 14 landing in the Top 10.
More than 30 singles have charted, with 22 going Top 20, including the incomparable hits “Honky Tonk Man,” “Please Please Baby,” “Little Ways,” “I Sang Dixie,” “It Only Hurts When I Cry,” “Fast as You” and “Thousand Miles from Nowhere.” He’s won two Grammys and earned a staggering 21 nominations. Other hits include, “Guitars, Cadillacs,” “Streets of Bakersfield,” “Ain’t That Lonely Yet,” “Suspicious Minds,” “Little Sister,” “Turn It On, Turn It Up, Turn It Loose,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “You’re the One,” “Long White Cadillac,” “Things Change,” “I Want You to Want Me,” “The Heart That You Own.”
“His music has an incredibly unique sound,” said Deadwood Mountain Grand Resort Manager Susan Kightlinger. “We’re so excited to see our fans witness him make his magic – live -- and welcome him to our stage.”
Yoakam has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, placing him in an elite cadre of global superstars. Yet the sales have never come at the expense of his musical integrity. Whether singing about the twisted wreckage of romance, the broken dreams of this hard life, or burgeoning optimism Yoakam brings a knowing, glorious edge to his delivery and stands, in a world of artifice and flash, as a beacon of authenticity.
