Due to overwhelming demand, GRAMMY Award-winning artist Dwight Yoakam has added a second headlining show at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium on Saturday, April 13. Tickets go on sale Friday, February 15. 
 
Dwight’s Friday, April 12 show sold out in less than 30 minutes when it went on sale February 8.

This marks his return to the Mother Church of Country Music’s sacred stage for the first time since 2005. “The Ryman is one of a handful of places in the world, that from the moment you step inside, you can feel that you have entered a hallowed chamber occupied by the essence of the great," said Yoakam, who is currently touring in support of country’s most critically-acclaimed album of 2012, 3 Pears. The Lone Bellow, one of the most talked about new bands this year, is set to open.

With 3 Pears, Dwight has dominated best-of-2012 lists including Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Village Voice, NPR, American Songwriter, Rhapsody and AOL’s The Boot.  Meanwhile, the album was just named the #2 album of the year in Nashville Scene’s  13th Annual Country Music Critics’ Poll, as well being named the third best male vocalist, #5 songwriter and #8 artist of the year.  See the full poll results here.
 
Dwight has been included in more critics’ year-end lists in 2012 than any other country artist. In addition, 3 Pears holds the record for the most weeks at #1 (eight) at Americana radio.  For the latest Dwight info and tour dates, visit: www.DwightYoakam.com
