USA, 1990, Bakersfield sound / neo-traditionalist country

Dwight YoakamIf There Was a Way: One of the endearing hallmarks of Yoakam’s music is how the fiddles punctuate the end of his lyrical phrases. They play heartstrings as much as they do the strings of the violins. Dwight is also a master at using sudden pauses to great dramatic effect. So turn this one on, turn it up, as the music—as strong as booze—turns you loose! You’ll be drinking more tears than beer by the time you’re done.
