  Dwight Yoakam - booking information

  Dwight Yoakam - booking information

GRAMMY AWARD winning Dwight Yoakam is an American singer, songwriter, actor, and film director known for his pioneering style of country music. First becoming popular in the mid-1980s, Yoakam has recorded more than 20 albums and compilations, charted more than 30 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, and sold more than 30 million records. He has recorded five BILLBOARD No. 1 albums, 12 gold albums, and nine platinum albums, including the triple-platinum This Time.

On rare occasions, a sense of the past is mated with a fierce, intransigent vision of the future, and something new is born. Something new like the music of Dwight Yoakam.

  Dwight Yoakam - booking information

In all his recorded work and stage performances, Dwight Yoakam's music has been marked by an abiding affection for the purity of traditional country's precedent, but never has it been straitjacketed by a mindless fidelity that creates a vacuum in which a song withers and dies. Dwight's understanding of country's past is one of the great virtues of his music; his will to go the past one better – to up the ante emotionally, to jump the energy level up several notches – is an equally important virtue in the Yoakam canon. And his vision as a songwriter continues to set him apart.

  Dwight Yoakam - booking information

Initially, the Kentucky native burst onto the scene in the early '80s by driving an alternate route of his own invention. Hailed as a "Renaissance Man" by Time magazine, Dwight creates music that, according to the Los Angeles Times, is "rooted in the rawest of country traditions (Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, et al), but it's aggressively contemporary without pandering to fleeting pop trends." Vanity Fair has also noted: Yoakam strides the divide between rock's lust and country's lament."

Dwight realized in the early days of his career that he might need to find an alternate highway for his music. So he brought his music to an unlikely audience – he roots rock fans of Los Angeles, who were becoming conversant with a new breed of traditionalist through the work of such local bands as Los Lobos, the Blasters and Lone Justice, all of whom shared stages with Dwight. It was strange chemistry, certainly, but Dwight stuck by his guns and achieved a new audience for his heady combination of gutsy country emotion and rock 'n' roll electricity.

That combination was also on view in his six-song 1984 debut EP "Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc." – a record that attracted the attention of devotees of rock's most progressive sounds. "Guitars, Cadillacs," issued independently by a small Hollywood label, was re-released in 1986, augmented by four new songs, on Reprise Records. That album, and the six studio sets that followed it, encapsulate Dwight's uncompromising approach to modern country. They are: "Hillbilly Deluxe" (1987), "Buenos Noches From A Lonely Room" (1988), "Just Lookin' For A Hit" (1989), "If There Was A Way" (1990) – all of which have sold more than 1 million units – plus "This Time" (1993), Dwight's double-platinum bestseller, "Gone" (1995). 

Writing about the milestone "This Time" in a four-star Rolling Stone lead review, Don McLeese noted that the album "suggests that he has no contemporary peer, that his emotional precision and command of nuance have attained a kind of perfection." 

Listeners within the music industry concurred: "Ain't That Lonely Yet," the #1 top-selling single drawn from that album, won a 1993 Grammy for Best Country Vocal Performance, Male, while the album's "Pocket Of A Clown" received a Grammy nomination in the same category a year later. Dwight summed up his career to date with 1995's "Dwight Live," a smoking document of the last dates on his 1994 "This Time Tour" recorded at San Francisco's Warfield Theater. Like all its precursors, this energetic concert recording captured his dramatic melding of country roots and contemporary fervor.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE DWIGHT YOAKAM?
(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire DWIGHT YOAKAM for an event?)
(i.e., what is DWIGHT YOAKAM booking fee to perform at an event?)

Official booking fees for DWIGHT YOAKAM, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior notice.

Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist's calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist's concerts, the current demand for the artist's music, market activity, etc.

As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist's price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when becoming less popular.

Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist's manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
