Dwight is one of my favorite country artist ever. It’s too bad his kind of throwback country with smattering’s of rock didn’t catch on and now we have this god awful hip-hop country bro crap like Florida Georgia Line and Luke Bryan

I think it caught on...
” 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, twelve gold albums, and nine platinum albums”
But I agree too bad the other crap has now taken over.
Buck Owens and Merle introduced the Stratocaster to country music. My dad was a huge fan of both, so my childhood was filled with them. Big fan of Dwight as well.
Country music runs in cycles. For years it was Chet Atkins and the Nashville Sound, full string arrangements and such. Guys like Waylon and Willie getting fed up with that produced the Outlaw movement. Buck and Merle were distinct in that era. Then it was the schlock of the 70's and 80's, but along came Randy Travis, Alan Jackson, Yoakam and many others. This latest wave is pure garbage. But there's some great stuff on the alt scene; Jamey Johnson, Cody Jinks, Turnpike Troubadours, a ton more. That's where real country is now, not on the radio
