Dwight Yoakam Tomorrow's Gonna Be Another Day on 7" Vinyl

Dwight Yoakam: Kentucky born, Ohio raised; Tennessee jilted, California praised. That's the way the story goes, at least. In 1977 when Dwight moved to Nashville to pursue his honky-tonk dreams, Nashville was moving away from the traditional and Countrypolitan sound it had spent the better part of a century developing, and more towards the pop-country that still inhabits its airwaves. Dwight found that his musical aspirations were better suited on the leading edge of the post-Bakersfield, Los Angeles "Cowpunk" scene where his music was better received by the West coast punks and drunks than the then-current Music City establishment. 

The Nashville industry eventually embraced the LA-based outsider in the late 80's and Yoakam turned out to be one of the best damn artists country music has ever known. Today, the massive influence of Yoakam's unique style of country music on Nashville is clearly demonstrated by the sheer number of times "Guitars, Cadillacs" is picked on lower Broadway each day. It never gets old. It's practically the city anthem.

Third Man Records, as you know, is thrilled to call Nashville home to its label headquarters, and calling Nashville home means putting out some real country music records. Yoakam recently took to the studio with Third Man's fearless leader Jack White to record two of the swingin'est tunes they've ever had covered in their Blue Series: "Tomorrow's Gonna Be Another Day" (Boyce/Venet, popularized by The Monkees) b/w "High On The Mountain of Love" (Dorman, popularized by Kenny Lynch, then Johnny Rivers, then the Beach Boys, and recorded by many others along the way). 

Produced by White and backed by the Third Man band of all-stars – Lillie Mae Rische, Daru Jones, Cory Younts, Dominic Davis, Fats Kaplin – these two renditions, into which Dwight's delivery breathes new life, proves that with the right artist behind the microphone, any song'll make an even better country song. Now, have you ever heard anything more Nashville than that?
