Dwight Yoakam Ventures into Bluegrass with New Album

Dwight YoakamDwight Yoakam is set to release Swimmin' Pools, Movie Stars... September 23 on Sugar Hill Records. The new album will feature bluegrass reinventions. North American tour dates in support of the new release have been confirmed. The new album reflects the love for bluegrass music that Yoakam developed at an early age in Kentucky, and that has inspired him for many years thereafter. Yoakam’s choice to partner with Sugar Hill for this release speaks volumes about the seriousness of this endeavor; Sugar Hill and its sister label Rounder have long been at the forefront of bluegrass, roots, and Americana music.
