Country music superstar, Dwight Yoakam is set to perform at Casino New Brunswick’s Event Centre in Moncton on Sunday, September 1 at 8 pm.
Few entertainers have attained the iconic status of Kentucky native, Dwight Yoakam. His name immediately conjures up compelling, provocative images: A pale cowboy hat with the brim pulled low; poured-on blue jeans; and intricate, catchy melodies paired with poignant, brilliant lyrics that mesmerize with their indelible imprint.
Then there’s Yoakam the actor, who seemingly melts into his roles, impressively standing toe-to-toe with some of the world’s top thespians: Jodie Foster, Tommy Lee Jones, Forest Whitaker and Nicolas Cage. Add to that Yoakam, the entrepreneur and you have a singular talent without peer.
Yoakam’s latest Warner Bros. album, 3 Pears, exemplifies his ability to incorporate multiple, competing influences into a piece of cohesive art. It balances his country core with a fiercely independent embrace of rock, Americana, pop and soul.
It blends Yoakam’s respect for his musical predecessors with the collaborative assistance of modern singer/songwriter Beck, who co-produced two tracks, and popular rocker Kid Rock, who co-wrote the hooky opener, “Take Hold Of My Hand.” But most importantly, 3 Pears builds on his trademark edginess with a notable, growing positivity.
