Three of our favorite Dwight Yoakam songs

Dwight Yoakam

Dwight David Yoakam was born in Pikeville, Kentucky on October 23, 1956. His career would see him become a very accomplished singer and songwriter, as well as becoming an actor and a director.

In celebration of his birthday and to honor is career, here are some of our favorite Yoakam songs!

“Guitars, Cadillacs”

“Guitars, Cadillacs” was the second single, and partial title track, to Dwight’s 1986 project Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc., Etc.. It would go on to peak at the number 4 spot in the United States.

“Streets of Bakersville”

In 1973, Homer Joy and Buck Owens wrote “Streets of Bakersville.” Owens released his version but did not see much chart success. In 1988, Dwight persuaded Owens to re-release the song as a duet; it would go on to be Dwight’s first number 1 hit!

“Honkey-Tonk Man”

“Honkey-Tonk Man” was first written in the mid 1950s. It saw many covers over the years, but Dwight would put his voice to the song in 1986 as the debut single for his album. It would peak at number 3 on the charts.

Honorable Mention:

“Suspicious Minds”
