It is fair to say that the music genre country-rock is not exactly the most popular sound going but it has produced many greats over the years and one of the current country-rock stars is none other than Dwight Yoakam. Dwight has spoken about his rise to stardom, admitting that his unique taste in music as a youngster is possibly one of the factors for his success.

Yoakam explained, "From high school on, I knew country-rock — the hyphenate had happened — was my savior, because there were certain styles of rock music that just lent themselves to me and my voice," Yoakam, 56, said in an interview with musicradar.com. "I would sing Don MacLean's 'American Pie' in high school, or different James Taylor songs, but I would just as likely do Buddy Holly material, or it might be the Everly Brothers."
 
He added, "The kids in Columbus (Ohio) would look at me like I was from Mars when I did a Stonewall Jackson song. It'd be like, 'Where are you from?' Pikeville is only 90 miles from Columbus, but culturally, it's Appalachia. In truth, there was a lot of country music in Ohio, too. I listened to all of it, and I loved rock music, but I knew that my expression was in some hybrid expression I was bound to make."
