Dwight Yoakam girlfriend Emily Joyce has been with the singer since 2013. It’s indicative of a singular style that Yoakam has cultivated no matter what is going on around him. “It was almost like walking out and playing early in my career when people were just getting to know me.”.
Then there’s the part when Yoakam takes then-girlfriend Bridget Fonda in a hot air balloon — on the commentary track, Yoakam and his crew members reveal that the filming of this sequence coincided with news that South of Heaven’s financing had suddenly collapsed, a body blow to the already threadbare $4 million production. You can hear it in the music, he tells me. “I’m as big a fan today as I was when I first heard his music. Of course NOT! Like the best country singers, Yoakam could pack a lifetime of pain into two and a half breezy-sounding minutes. The combination of two-fisted music and vulnerable yet resolute masculinity forever endeared him to self-proclaimed outsiders like Eric Church, who invited Yoakam to open more than 30 dates on his arena tour in 2014.
Wildflowers Lyrics Dolly Parton, Songs like “She” and the title track echo the Byrds, the original kingpins of the Sunset Strip rock scene in the ’60s. (They were friendly then, Yoakam says, and still are; they spent the summer of 2018 on the road with Lucinda Williams, on a bill they called the LSD Tour.) Yoakam calls Second Hand Heart a “raucous reexploration of the purity of adolescent intent,” and that spirit carries over to the video for his latest single, the Nuggets-like “Liar.” He filmed it a few nights earlier amid a stretch of high-end boutiques situated on Sunset between the DGA office and Whisky a Go Go, the venerable rock club where Yoakam is scheduled to perform a record release show the following day.
