I don’t really like country except for a couple of songs.Â Dwight Yoakam’s “A Thousand Miles From Nowhere” is one of my chosen few.Â It works when you’re in a good mood or a bad mood, drinking or sober, spring, summer or fall.Â Therefore it’s a classic.
Except for his face I have always thought Dwight Yoakam was kind of mysterious in a weird way.Â And a poet of a songwriter.Â A little googling and I found a Facebook fan page for “Dwight Yoakam’s Pants.”Â I guess I’m not the only one that has noticed how eternally tight they are.Â He must have to pull them on in the bathtub.
The good news?Â He’ll be at the Dakota Magic Casino (the one on the border) on February 13th. The bad news?Â It’s the casino on the border.Â That’s two hours of driving one way and pretty much a thousand miles from nowhere.
