Country roots go deep, and they’re coming to Spirit Mountain Casino! Dwight Yoakam is taking the stage at the Main Event Center on Saturday, December 16th, and tickets are on sale now. Join to experience one of country music’s greatest influencers, live in the heart of the Willamette Valley.
Tapping into traditional country and Bakersfield honky-tonk influences, Yoakam has always gone against the grain of modern country music. But his unique take has won him forever fans across every musical preference; Yoakam’s name has made itself at home on country music charts, just as he’s reworked music by The Clash, The Grateful Dead, Cheap Trick, and other artists across every genre. His prolific career includes:
- 25 million album sales worldwide, including 12 certified Gold albums and 9 Platinum albums
- Designation as the 2013 Americana Music Award for Artist of the Year
- 17 Grammy nominations and two wins
- Notable acting credits, with roles in Sling Blade, Panic Room, Logan Lucky, and more than thirty other movies and television shows
Dwight Yoakam’s early classics, like "Honky Tonk Man" and "Guitars, Cadillacs," will never go out of style. But his recent work holds as much clout as his breakout material. In 2016, Yoakam released Swimmin' Pools, Movie Stars, a retrospective album that reworks some of his original hits into bluegrass material. More than thirty years into his career, Yoakam continues to challenge the confines of country music — and it continues to pay off.
