Dwight Yoakam's Guide to Bluegrass, From Ralph Stanley to Ricky Skaggs Bradley Walker Reflects on His Surprise ... - Billboard

Country veteran Dwight Yoakam has helped anchor his genre's traditional wing since the '80s, when he first started pumping out hard-charging honky tonk records. His latest album, Swimmin' Pools, Movie Stars , looks to revive another strand of country history that has largely been forgotten by the genre's mainstream: bluegrass. "Being born in Pikeville, Kentucky, it's been inevitable from the beginning of my career — from the beginning of my life— that I would end up making a bluegrass record," he tells Billboard. "It's just been framed within the margins of more commercial, traditional country context and presentation. Yoakam is an avid student of the form, happy to discuss the way bluegrass evolved from the 1920s -- when it was one of "the first radically successful commercial versions of country music in the public consciousness" -- through the Great... " He suggests that Swimmin' Pools channels "the late '50s, early '60s variation of bluegrass in terms of the aggression of what we were playing. As if to prove that bluegrass was always an important part of his work, Swimmin' Pools finds Yoakam returning to deep cuts from his own catalog and redoing them in bluegrass form. "The producers [Gary Paczosa and Jon Randall] came to me and said, 'look, we have looked through about 200 songs, and we kind of keep coming back to your songs,'" Yoakam remembers. I can't hold anything against my own songs. "They were bluegrass songs hidden in a more contemporary arrangement. Billboard caught up with Yoakam during a rare day off at his home in L. A. to discuss his relationship with bluegrass and some of the singers that have been important to his understanding the genre over the years. Hear Dwight Yoakam's Twangy Tribute to Prince: A Bluegrass 'Purple Rain'. Bluegrass was just what you heard on the radio in Southeast Kentucky when you were driving along. Even on Sunday morning, you heard a version of bluegrass being performed as gospel -- they used to call the hillbilly hymns. Jimmy Martin was being played on those radio stations. That was one of the first albums I came into contact with. my grandfather had it. It was straight-up bluegrass. "Sunny Side of the Mountain" was one of his big hits. Listen to Martin sing "Widow Maker" and "Sunny Side Of The Mountain. " Listen to the late '50s, early '60s records of his. Source: www.billboard.com
