Epiphone's Dwight Yoakam will kick off a short December tour of the southwest December 7 at the Fox Tucson Theatre in Tuscon, Arizona before traveling on to Las Vegas, San Antonio, and Houston. Yoakam will be performing songs from his new bluegrass-styled album, Swimming Pools, Movie Stars... as well as many of the more rockin' numbers from his storied career.

And when Yoakam turns up, it usually means there is an Epiphone Casino in the house. Look for a return to high volume honky tonk later in 2017. Though you're not likely to see one on sale second- hand, check out Yoakam talking about his now classic Epiphone Signature Ltd. Ed. "Dwight Trash" Casino.
