MP3: Download Dwight Yoakam’s 9/21/16 Americanafest Show


Promoting new album and celebrating the venerable A-fest tradition!

By Uncle Blurt

Seems like all our rowdy friends hotfooted it over to Nashville last week for the annual Americanafest, leaving us to tend the Tarheel homefires all by our lonesome. What happened over there? Well, at least we got updates via Twitter and Facebook from some of those rowdy friends, or we would have no earthly idea, as the national music media, us included, appears to have been largely out of the loop. (Rumor has it that Jason Isbell was celebrated at the Americana Music Association awards ceremony, and that T Bone Burnett gave an impassioned keynote speech, so that’s a good sign.)

Luckily, though, a slew of great performances have surfaced online so us normal citizens can check out the tunes, which of course is the stuff that counts; YouTube was blowing up this weekend in particular. And the ever-diligent archivists at the Big O zine kindly posted MP3s of Dwight Yoakam’s live webcast.
