RE: Dwight Yoakam
Dwight was fabulous, overall! Although he did not play IWYTWM, he did play my other favorite cover - Ring of Fire - as well as some of my favorites - Little Ways, Guitars Cadillacs, Fast as You, etc. A bunch of new tunes. No ballads, though. I was disappointed that there was no fiddle, too. Many of his songs rely heavily on the fiddle and it felt a bit empty without it.......
He played two hours straight and was very personable.
This is the venue (Soaring Eagle Casino) that CT is playing Dec. 28 (while I am in another hemisphere). Warning: Some of the "front row" seats are WAYYYYYY in a corner that doesn't even allow people there to see the stage. It is an awkward wide short room.
