Parker’s BlueWater Resort & Casino will play host to country music icon Dwight Yoakam in February.
Few entertainers have attained the iconic status of Yoakam. The Kentucky-born, Ohio-raised long time Los Angeleno has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, placing him in an elite cadre of global superstars. He has 12 gold albums and 9 platinum or multi-platinum albums, including the triple platinum “This Time”. Five of those albums have topped Billboard’s Country Albums chart with another seven landing in the Top 10. More than 30 singles have charted, with eighteen going top 20, including the incomparable hits “Honky Tonk Man,” Please Please Baby,” “Little Ways,” “I Sang Dixie,” “It Only Hurts When I Cry,” “Fast as You,” and “Thousand Miles from Nowhere”.
His brand of music was not accepted in Nashville when Yoakam was starting out, so he moved to Los Angeles, CA and spent his early years operating completely outside of traditional country music channels, playing rock and punk clubs around the city. This led to many people crediting Yoakam with rock audiences accepting country music.
Yoakam will bring his hits to BlueWater’s outdoor amphitheater at 4pm Saturday, February 25th. Tickets are on sale now at the BlueWater Gift Shop and priced at $40 in advance and $60 day of the show.
