Few entertainers have attained the iconic status of Dwight Yoakam. Perhaps that's because so few have consistently and repeatedly met the high standards of excellence delivered by the Kentucky native – no matter what the endeavor.
With his critically acclaimed acting career, Dwight has starred in over twenty three films, including consequential performances in Oscar® winner Sling Blade, Cannes Film Festival winner Three Burials of the Melquiades Estrada, and box office successes including Crank, Wedding Crashers, Four Christmases and David Fincher's hit Panic Room.
An accomplished feature film and music video director, and TV & film producer, Dwight currently helms his Via Entertainment production company actively developing feature and television material.
Obviously best known as a singer-songwriter, Dwight has risen from hot country star to a legendary recording artist. Among his accolades, Dwight has earned 12 gold albums, 9 platinum and multi-platinum albums, won two Grammys, earned an additional 21 Grammy nominations and sold over 25 million albums.
