No. 73: Dwight Yoakam, ‘Guitars, Cadillacs’ – Top 100 Country Songs

Reprise Records

When Dwight Yoakam moved to Nashville to start a music career, his hillbilly twang wasn’t favored by the industry. Yoakam headed to Los Angeles, where he wrote original material and played his tunes at rock and punk clubs.

In 1986, Reprise Records rer-eleased Yoakam’s debut album, ‘Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc., Etc., Etc.’ The album hit No. 1, bringing three singles to the top of the country charts. Today, Yoakam is credited for introducing rock audiences to country music. This entry on the Top 100 Country Songs list is one of Yoakam’s most popular songs — and still a favorite of country fans.
