Dwight Yoakam plays at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, in the Grande Exposition Hall at the Silver Legacy in Reno. Tickets are $65 and $85.
Press: “In another time and place,” sings Dwight Yoakam on the buoyant opening track of “Second Hand Heart.” The brilliant new album that takes the pioneering honky-tonker back to Warner Bros./Reprise, where began his major-label recording career thirty years ago. Yoakam’s distinctive, supple vocals, accented with his Kentucky croon, sound as strong today as they did on his debut album. Its release immediately yielded hit singles, and over the course of some 21 albums totaling more than 25 million in sales worldwide, Yoakam has continued to passionately sing, write and play music brimming with hard country and rock ‘n’ roll. “Second Hand Heart” was self-produced by Yoakam, and reflects where he’s been, but even more so, where he’s going. Yoakam performs live at the Silver Legacy Resort Casino on Saturday, Nov. 5 at 8 p.m.
His deep knowledge of music history seeps into his own sonic playbook, with hints of Elvis, The Everly Brothers, The Beatles and the Beach Boys, among other influences. Yet once Yoakam “puts his hillbilly voice on it,” as he refers to that magnificent instrument, he makes it his own.
Tickets are $65 and $85 and can be purchased online or by calling 775-325-7401.
