Music Monday-Dwight Yoakam "Close Up the Honky Tonks"

When I was a kid, my dad used to listen to a lot of country music. We used to hear a lot of classic country back then; Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, and Buck Owens.  Over the years, I have come to appreciate all of those artists, but at the time, my favorite was Buck Owens.  I guess primarily because we used to see him weekly on the old television show "Hee Haw."

Buck got a bit of a resurgence when he did a duet with Dwight Yoakam called "Streets of Bakersfield."  There was a special relationship between Dwight and Buck.  You could tell that his style was heavily influenced by Buck.  If there was to be an artist to do a tribute album to Buck Owens, there was nobody better to do it than Dwight Yoakam.  When Dwight released his CD "Dwight Sings Buck," I had to have it.  There is a lot of good music on the CD, but my favorite is this one, "Close Up the Honky Tonks."
