Population Me by Dwight Yoakam

There’s a lot of stuff demanding Dwight’s attention these days - after all, he’s got a busy acting career and even his own line of frozen food. So you might reasonably expect his music to suffer as he juggles his interests.

But you'd be wrong.

It seems like the more Dwight expands his horizons, the more tightly focused his music becomes. Clocking in at a fat-free 32 minutes, Population Me lays the pedal down hard with the opening Eagles-y dig at his California home, "The Late Great Golden State," and never lets up until the surprisingly tender closer, "The Back of Your Hand."

SOUND ADVICE: Dwight where he belongs
