Dwight Yoakam In Concert
City National Grove of Anaheim
2200 E Katella Ave
Anaheim, CA 92806
(714) 712-2700
www.citynationalgroveofanaheim.com

An accomplished actor and musician with 15 studio albums under his belt, Dwight Yoakam continues to be an evolving artist and tireless troubadour. Releasing “Second Hand Heart” last spring, Yoakam is touring in support of the album in which the Kentucky native channels his mentors and predecessors like Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, and Elvis Presley with some stylish string work that makes for a great show, even if honky tonk isn’t your thing. A master songwriter, fluid musician, and a committed artist, Mr. Yoakam remains a relevant, forward-thinking voice that is well worth the price of admission.
