Show Notes 

The crew really dug into this album and had a lot to say this months. The covers caught our attention for better or worse, and it’s clear Dwight Yoakam’s music generates a strong opinion. For a bunch of rockers, we’ve all found different things to appreciate about this album and a couple pet peeves too. We got a bit into the history of country music and Dwight’s part in the transition from the 70s to the 80s. Enjoy!
