DWIGHT YOAKAM TO RELEASE BRAND-NEW ALBUM SECOND HAND HEART  ON APRIL 14TH

Internationally renowned recording artist, songwriter, and actor Dwight Yoakam will release a brand-new album, entitled Second Hand Heart, on April 14th, 2015. The album, available for pre-order HERE, marks the multiple GRAMMY Award winner’s return to the Warner family. Yoakam released a series of albums on Reprise Records beginning with his debut, Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc., Etc., in 1986.

Yoakam will return to the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards® this Sunday, February 8th, for a special performance with ‘Best New Artist’ nominee Brandy Clark.

Yoakam self-produced Second Hand Heart, which was mixed by renowned engineer Chris Lord-Alge, who also co-produced three tracks with Yoakam (“She,” “Believe,” and “The Big Time.”) The album features two covers, Anthony Crawford’s “V’s of Birds” and the traditional “Man of Constant Sorrow.” Yoakam penned the other eight songs on his own.

Yoakam has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, placing him in an elite cadre of internationally acclaimed recording artists. He has earned 12 gold albums and nine platinum or multi-platinum albums, including the triple-platinum This Time. Five of those albums have topped Billboard’s Country Albums chart with another 14 landing in the Top 10. More than 30 singles have charted, with 22 going Top 20. He is a 21-time nominated, multiple GRAMMY Award winner. His previous album, 3 Pears, spent a record-breaking eight weeks at the top of the Americana Chart. Dwight Yoakam is managed by ROAR, a Beverly Hills-based artist and brand management company. He is also represented by top talent agency WME, and strategic digital marketing agency Girlilla Marketing.

RollingStone.com said “the album’s retro-billy title track rings with infectious jangly guitars, a swaggering beat and Yoakam’s instantly recognizable twang.” Listen to “Second Hand Heart” HERE.
