Dwight Yoakam - Honky Tonk Man

What's not to love about Dwight Yoakam? He's timeless. He's mysterious. He does his own thing. He's honky-tonk-rockabilly-twangy-country. He wore skinny jeans before they were cool. Actually they've never been cool to me on anyone but him and maybe Alan Jackson. I wish there were more people like Dwight Yoakam. But then again, maybe I like him so much for being one of a kind.

I've heard this song a few times in the past week on the radio and it wasn't until today that I realized how old it was! It was released before I was even born but I've always loved it. I grew up on country music like this so it makes my heart happy to hear it.
