Dwight Yoakam is a true original

Acclaimed as both an actor and director, Dwight Yoakam is an artist through and through. But however he brings characters to life on the big screen, they don’t have a chance of living up to the indelible images he creates in his music.

With 21 albums under his belt, Dwight Yoakam is bringing a lot of hits with him when he comes to the WinStar World Casino on Saturday, Dec. 21. That’s because, much like on-screen, Yoakam is a chameleon. He pioneered his own brand of country music, often taking cues from rock and punk music. The result is a fusion all its own and a sound made irresistible by his hypnotic voice.

Touring on his latest album, 3 Pears, Yoakam is bringing a new spirit of positivity to his music and roping in new collaborators to keep his music fresh. Beck co-produced two of the songs and Kid Rock helped write the new “Take Hold of My Hand.”

Classic hits and new favorites alike are on the menu, so be sure you’re there to hear them. Premium seats are $45 and General tickets are $35. Call Ticketmaster at 1 (800) 745-3000 or go online to Ticketmaster.com to reserve your seats. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. for the one and only Dwight Yoakam.
