Remembering Dwight Yoakam & "A thousand miles from nowhere".......




In 1993, Dwight Yoakam released "This Time", a great country album. It still sounds great 15 years later:
"This Time is the fifth album by American country music artist Dwight Yoakam.

Three of its tracks barely missed the top spot on the Billboard Hot Country Singles charts, each topping out at #2:

"Ain't That Lonely Yet,"

"A Thousand Miles from Nowhere," and

"Fast as You."

Two other tracks also rose into the charts:

"Try Not to Look So Pretty" at #14 and "Pocket of a Clown" at #22.

The album itself peaked at #4 on the Top Country Albums chart.
"A Thousand Miles from Nowhere" was featured as the closing credits music for the film Red Rock West, in which Dwight Yoakam also made his film acting debut."
We have a lot of country music in Texas.

Yoakam is one of my favorites because of the guitar rifts!

Yoakam has recorded about 20 albums and charted 30 singles. He was also recognized by CMA for his contributions to promoting country music outside of North America.
