Grammy Award Winner Dwight Yoakam

The DPAO Foundation is bringing Grammy Award Winner Dwight Yoakam to the McVean Gymnasium at Jefferson Community College on Friday, June 26th at

7 p.m. An On-Sale Ticket Date will be announced soon.

"In another time and place," sings Dwight Yoakam on the buoyant "In Another World", the opening track on Second Hand Heart, the brilliant new album that takes the pioneering honky-tonker back to Warner Bros./Reprise, where he began his major-label recording career thirty years ago. Yoakam's distinctive, supple vocals, accented with his Kentucky croon, sound as strong today as they did on his debut, 1985's Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc. Etc. Its release immediately yielded hit singles and over the course of some 21 albums – totaling more than 25 million in sales worldwide – Yoakam has continued to passionately sing, write and play music brimming with hard country and rock and roll. Second Hand Heart was self-produced by Yoakam and reflects where he's been, but even more so, where he's going: "In Another World" guided the rest of the album," says Yoakam. "It became its statement – about surviving and hope."

"All of us have that need to remind ourselves that life is always worth trying,

every day – surviving to hope," Dwight says. And with Second Hand Heart, the man with many hats intends to do just that.
