For the first time in 7 years there is new studio album from Dwight Yoakam. I have been a Dwight fan since i first heard "Honky Tonk Man" back in 1986 from his debut album "Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc, Etc." Dwight has spent a lot of time acting and doing other projects but went back in the studio and has delivered a disc that is worth the wait.

The new album is called "3 Pears" and that title track is just one of the fantastic songs included.

Warner Bros

Right from the first note of the opening track "Take Hold Of My Hand" there is no doubt who you are listening to. There is coolness about his music and delivery. It has that jangle shuffle beat with drumming that seems just one beat off of normal. Dwight has the ever present hiccup yodel to his voice that only he can deliver and make it ooze with coolness.

Do yourself a country favor and pick up a copy of "3 Pears" today
