DWIGHT YOAKAMWith Special Guest Cam Allen
Raised on the Bakersfield honky tonk of Buck Owens and traditional country like Johnny Cash and Hank Williams, Dwight Yoakam has created more than a dozen studio albums of his own self-described hillbilly music over nearly four decades. On his 2012 collection, “3 Pears,” the Kentucky-born performer reached out to Kid Rock and Ashley Monroe of Pistol Annies for co-writing help on a couple songs, while Beck co-produced the successful set.
Ticket buyers know a slew of Yoakam singles when they head to his concerts — from the chart-topping “Guitars Cadillacs” from the similarly-titled 1986 debut and “I Sang Dixie” off of 1988’s “Buenas Noches from a Lonely Room” to 1993’s “A Thousand Miles from Nowhere.” And when he’s not on the tour bus canvassing the nation, the singer/songwriter may be on a movie set. His acting credits include critically acclaimed roles as an abusive boyfriend in “Sling Blade” and a psychopath killer in “Panic Room.”
Cam Allen and his country band, hailing from Oklahoma, have been making quite a name for themselves in the world of country music, especially in the Midwest. They've managed to blend their deep Oklahoma roots with the unmistakable Nashville sound, creating a unique musical experience. Cam has headlined a string of sold-out shows and had the privilege of sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in country music, like Dustin Lynch (at the Calf-Fry Festival in 2022), Randy Rogers (at SWOSUpalooza in 2022), Jack Ingram (at Gruene Hall in 2022), as well as artists like Chris Cagle, Randall King (at Banita Creek Hall in 2023), Corey Kent, and Mike Ryan.
Cam's songs have a soothing yet infectious quality to them, telling stories that cover a wide range of emotions, from love and heartbreak to the complexities of relationships, family, and friendship. For Cam, life is all about navigating through its twists and turns as things evolve, relationships shift, and we walk our personal paths filled with highs and lows.
Fronting the band, Cam provides the vocals, and he's backed by a talented group of musicians including Will Murray on lead guitar, Zander Silva on guitar, Desmund Richey on bass, Carlos Encarnacion on drums, and BJ Lee on keys. Cam's debut EP, titled "Daydream," dropped in March 2022 under the independent Texas label, GOAT Music Group. So far, Cam has released six singles, including "Daydream," "Drink To That Too," "Texas," "Jack Daniel’s Cologne," "Lake Days," and his most recent release, "Missin’ You." Excitingly, his first full album, "In a Hometown," is scheduled for release in 2023.
