Dwight Yoakam To Release 3 Pears In September

On September 18th, 2012, Grammy-Award winner Dwight Yoakam will release his first all new studio album in seven years, 3 Pears on Warner Bros. Records.  The 12-track release, his 26th, is produced by Yoakam, along with two songs co-produced with Beck; “A Heart Like Mine” and “Missing Heart”. Fans can hear a teaser of the track, “Trying,” now on Yoakam’s newly launched website

From the press release:
3 Pears exemplifies Yoakam’s ability to incorporate multiple, competing influences into a piece of cohesive art. It balances his country core with a fiercely independent embrace of rock, Americana, pop and soul and builds on his trademark edginess with a notable, growing positivity. 3 Pears contains heartfelt love songs, which showcase Yoakam’s authentic country vocals while maintaining his unmistakable classic sound.  
Yoakam will be honored by the Academy of Country Music with the Cliffie Stone Pioneer Award at the 6th Annual ACM Honors event on September 24th in Nashville.  The prestigious Award honors individuals who are pioneers in the country music genre.  Past recipients include Johnny Cash, Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Hank Williams, Sr. and Hank Williams, Jr. Yoakam also recently narrated the current exhibit at The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum; The Bakersfield Sound:  Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, and California County, showing through the end of next year. The exhibit explores the roots, heyday and impact of the Bakersfield Sound, the loud, stripped-down and radio-ready music most closely identified with the careers of Country Music Hall of Fame members Buck Owens and Merle Haggard.
