We've been remiss in not giving more love here to Dwight Yoakam, one of the consistent honky tonkers in this generation. No need to explain his background, since he's also one of the most successful honky tonkers alive. But we do have to give him kudos for reworking Dim Lights, Thick Smoke yet again. This version rocks. Three Pears is a great record. And he has an awesome live show.
