Congratulations are in order for Dwight Yoakam, who received the 2,227th star on Hollywood's legendary Walk of Fame.

Four months ago, when Dwight was at the star unveiling ceremony of another country legend, Earl Scruggs, he requested that his star be placed next to Earl's – and got his wish. Dwight's star is also right down the street from Capital Recording Studio, the company that was involved in producing the first six albums of his career.

Dwight's mother and high school drama teacher were in attendance, as well as the aforementioned Earl Scruggs, Vince Vaughn, ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons and his one-time duet partner Buck Owens.

"It's a long way from Pikeville, Kentucky," said Dwight at the ceremony. "I've said many times that I was born in Kentucky, raised in Ohio, but grew up in California. I got here when I was 20 years old and feel like I came to fruition as an adult here, and I began writing and recording here in earnest. This will always be home."
