Dwight Yoakam explores bluegrass on next album; on tour now

I can't wait to hear this. He's been on a real creative roll the past half decade... 

Dwight Yoakam’s new album, Swimmin’ Pools, Movie Stars, is set for release Sept. 23 via Sugar Hill Records. The roots/country vet is currently on tour. See details below.

For the 11-track recording, Yoakam assembled a band of bluegrass luminaries to reinterpret favorites from his catalog, including Bryan Sutton (guitar), Stuart Duncan (fiddle, banjo), Barry Bales (bass), Adam Steffey (mandolin) and Scott Vestal (banjo). Harmony vocals were handled by Jonathan Clark, Yoakam's touring bandmate Brian Whelan, Cracker's Davey Faragher and Bryan Joyce.
