Dwight Yoakam has sold 25 million albums worldwide, and now this GRAMMY-winning entertainment icon will make his Wynn Las Vegas debut with a six-night residency, An Evening with Dwight Yoakam & The Bakersfield Beat presented by SiriusXM, at the Encore Theater. Guests can expect to take a journey with songs, sights, and stories through California country music’s dramatic arrival and lasting impact on American pop music culture.
Beginning with the Dust Bowl era, Yoakam will take the audience on a musical excursion exploring the history of the sounds associated with Bakersfield, Calif. through songs and storytelling in this exclusive residency. Yoakam will perform a variety of the music that influenced and created the “Bakersfield” and “California Country-Rock” genres of country music from its early beginnings to its commercial zeniths, in addition to his own original music that was shaped and influenced by this legacy. This unique showcase will reflect the concepts that created his self-curated SiriusXM channel, Dwight Yoakam & The Bakersfield Beat. These and other influences have inspired Yoakam throughout his career, highlighted by 12 gold albums, nine platinum or multi-platinum albums, and nearly 40 singles on the Billboard charts. And now Yoakam brings his dual mastery of songwriting and storytelling to the Encore Theater, weaving a musical journey audiences are sure to remember.
