By listening briefly to his songs, he sounds like he's better suited to play Stagecoach than Coachella.

um, yeah! just like Willie Nelson last year... duh.


and if your grandmother listened to DY, then i'm sure your grandfather listened to Roger Waters... personally, my grandmother did LSD at a Pink Floyd show in the early 70's... i'm looking forward to channelling that experience... :)

Probably. And after you check out Dwight with Grandma, then you can take her to check out Kraftwerk with you. How fucking cool is that?

Rumour has it that he'll be doing a set of Jack Johnson covers...

I love Dwight. He reminds me of riding the school bus when I was a knee high lil' grasshoppa.

As I recall, when Dwight started out, he used to play at punk clubs because the country venues wouldn't have him.

When I saw the Stagecoach lineup, I knew he would be one of the Coachella guests.

I saw him at the tennis gardens here in the desert afew years ago and wasn't disappointed. Don't let the country thing fool you.

You know, I expect a lot of Dwight hating (and I hope he realizes what he's getting himself into) but at the end of the day he's way more Gram Parsons than he is Toby Keith and that's a highly important distinction when the country types show up at Coachella.

I'm excited to see him.

Dwight has more punk spirit than most bands at Coachella.
Worth checking out.

Was Billy Ray Cyrus not available or something?

I hope Jack Johnson and Yokam both die in a fiery car crash.

he's not the worst country act i've heard

Exactly...that would be Billy Ray Cyrus.

Don't get me wrong...I really don't give a crap about Dwight Yoakum. But looking at the Stagecoach lineup, Dwight is the only one I would be able to sit through, at least of the names I know. (OK, George Jones would be cool for a few minutes)

just because it was cool to see willie nelson at coachella last year doesn't mean they have to start having a c'untry artist every year.

out of any country artist they had to pick, im glad it was him.

i once worked at a place that played country music all the time, not just radio friendly country but all different sorts. i am not a country fan at all, but if you have to listen to country 40 hours a week, you really do start to recognize good country from bad country just like any genre i suppose

dwight yoakam is good country. i doubt i'd do much more than check out his set for a song or two, but it should be kinda cool to see him

I'd rather see him than Jack Johnson.

Yup, albeit that was also because he moved to California and rejected the whole Nashville country hit-making machine. Hanging out with X can have that effect too (kind of funny now that X has morphed into an alt-country-punk group)

Not a big Dwight fan, but he's probably the most logical overlap from Stagecoach this year. Might be some good counterprogramming if you get burned out on the 500 electroclash-rock-soundystem style bands.

any artist that has their music videos directed by Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit cant be bad at all.

Bet you he puts on a satisfying set. Say a nice 15 minutes in the background while you wolf down some funnel cake n water!
