Groundbreaking ‘Guitars, Cadillacs, Et. album was released 30 years ago, on August 19th, 1986. Long before Renaissance man Dwight Yoakam was selling over 25 million records and making an impression on movie audiences in films like Sling Blade, Panic Room and South of Heaven, West of Hell (which he also co-wrote, directed and scored), the genre-blurring Buck Owens devotee was just another young upstart excited to finally be releasing his first record.

With Dwight Yoakam's 1986 debut album, country music's neo-traditionalist movement exploded into the public consciousness. Besides injecting old-school classics like Johnny Horton’s "Honky Tonk Man" and Johnny Cash’s "Ring of Fire" with a touch of rock 'n' roll spirit, he also showed that he could pen his own equally worthy tunes. The title track shuffles along on a Ray Price-style boogie, while the Maria McKee-featuring Bury Me combines bluegrass with rockabilly, and South of Cincinnati would be at home in any tearstained barroom.

Guitars, Cadillacs, Et. is country music artist Dwight Yoakam's debut album. It was also the first of three consecutive No. 1 Billboard Country Albums for him. Three of its tracks rose into the Top 40 of the Hot Country Singles chart in 1986. Yoakam's first single was "Honky Tonk Man" peaking at No. 3 on the country charts; it was a song originally popularized by Johnny Horton in 1956.

In stock on May 23, 2018. Only 19 left in stock (more on the way). This album was just a hint of what was yet to come in following years from Dwight; They broke the mold when Mr Yoakam arrived on the scene, and staying true to form, Dwight continues to use the same formula in his musical releases as he did with this first album. It's well worth your time and money; give it a listen.
