Dwight Yoakam with Brandy Clark

Dwight Yoakam has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, and is a 21-time nominated, multiple Grammy winner. He has 12 gold albums and nine platinum or multi-platinum albums, with five of those albums topping Billboard’s Country Albums chart, and another 14 landing in the Top 10. Nearly 40 of Yoakam’s singles have charted, with 14 peaking in the Top 10. He received the Artist of the Year award at the 2013 Americana Music Honors & Awards ceremony, the most prestigious award offered by the organization. In September of 2016, Yoakam released his first ever bluegrass album Swimmin’ Pools, Movie Stars…. Featuring a band of bluegrass luminaries, this album boasts a collection of reinterpreted favorites from his catalogue, as well as a cover of Prince’s “Purple Rain.” In 2015, Yoakam released his latest album Second Hand Heart, the follow up to his critically acclaimed album 3 Pears. Yoakam is also formidable film and television actor, capable of seamlessly melting into his roles, and impressively standing toe-to-toe with some of the world’s top thespians, including Jodie Foster, Tommy Lee Jones, Jared Leto, Forest Whitaker and Matthew McConaughey.


Brandy Clark first rose to fame as a songwriter. Her songs have been recorded by such artists as The Band Perry (“Better Dig Two”), Miranda Lambert's "Mama's Broken Heart" and Kacey Musgraves' "Follow Your Arrow" (which won the CMA Song of the Year Award in 2014), but being an artist in her own right was a dream she had stopped dreaming until her first album, the stunning, Grammy and CMA nominated, 12 Stories, debuted (2013). Her second album Big Day in a Small Town (2016) features the hits “Girl Next Door” and “Love Can Go to Hell.”
