Badass Country Star Dwight Yoakam Playing Whitewater Amphitheater


  • Emily Joyce
If you’re ornery on account of just coming around to the idea that it’ll soon be hotter than a witch’s tit in a brass brassiere outside, and it will likely stay that way for five months, then we’ve got just the show to segue satisfactorily into another hot Central Tejas summer.

Dwight Yoakam, who just might love us as much as we love him for all the stops he’s made in these parts recently, headlines this rad country bill. Yoakam stays on lists of living country artists that actually matter because he follows his own impulses like few have the guts to, ambling down the dusty byways of his country/swing/rockabilly sensibilities, headed nowhere in a hurry with his voice of solid Bakersfield gold. He’ll be joined for this show – did we mention this thing’s going down BY THE RIVER!? – by Texas country shit-kicker and neo-traditionalist Kevin Fowler and San Anto rockabilly mainstay Two Tons of Steel.

$32.33-$1,097.46, Sat May 12, 7pm, Whitewater Amphitheater, 11860 FM 306, New Braunfels,
