Dwight Yoakam's upcoming album, tour

Veteran country artist, songwriter and actor Dwight Yoakam is streaming his forthcoming album, Second Hand Heart, exclusively on NPR First Listen. Listen HERE.

Yoakam self-produced Second Hand Heart, which is set for release on Warner Bros. Records/Reprise on April 14. The album was mixed by engineer Chris Lord-Alge, who also co-produced three tracks with Yoakam ("She," "Believe," and "The Big Time").
NPR's World Café recently spoke with Yoakam about the LA music scene - that interview can be heard HERE. Yoakam was honored as Yahoo! Music's Spotlight Artist of the Month for March.

Yoakam will perform a very special set as part of the Second Hand Heart Record Release Party Show & Dance at Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles on Monday, April 13. He will return to the legendary 500-capacity venue on Sunset Boulevard for an intimate performance, harkening back to his early days in LA's cowpunk scene at the start of his career. The show will be streaming live on Yahoo! screen beginning at 7:30 pm.

Dwight Yoakam is a 21-time nominated, multiple Grammy Award winner - he has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, placing him in an elite cadre of global superstars. His performance with Brandy Clark at this year's Grammy Awards was met with critical acclaim, and he recently wrapped an arena tour with Eric Church. He will host the Austin City Limits' Hall of Fame show on June 18.
