Don’t forget that Epiphone’s favorite honky tonk man, Dwight Yoakam, just released a new album, 3 Pears
, that he recorded exclusively with his Dwight Trash Casino
. But Dwight also has lots of other Casinos. They're his favorite electric guitar. Here’s the Big D performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Dwight Yoakam's combination of Bakersfield country and Mersey Beat pop brought rockers to country and honky tonk to pop music with smash hits like "Guitars, Cadillacs," "Fast As You," "Little Sister," and "Turn It On, Turn It Up, Turn Me Loose."
Dwight broke out of the incredible Los Angeles country punk scene in the early 80s with a dash of Buck Owens, a dash of Beatles, and a whole new attitude that shook up country and rock and roll. And his influence still resonates today.
Dwight collaborated with Epiphone on his new "Dwight Trash" Casino Outfit
. And just like Dwight's music, it's a breakthrough combination of a familiar tune with a whole new groove. Don't miss it.
