Three Pears

It's been like the night before the night before Christmas around here all weekend, folks. Tuesday's the release date for Dwight Yoakam's latest cd, Three Pears. And since it's been a long seven years since the last cd from my favorite fella, I've had that baby pre-ordered for months.

I've been so excited that I couldn't help myself this morning. When I saw that L. had some pears out for juicing, I co-opted three of 'em for a photo op in honor of the album cover.

I've been listening to on-line early releases of several of the songs:

Three Pears itself (Following Dwight's incontrovertible thought process, this is a song inspired by John Lennon's three pairs of shades)

Take Hold of My Hand (lead track)

Heart Like Mine (co-produced with Beck)

Dim Lights, Thick Smoke (cow punk version of the country standard)

It's Never Alright

Long Way to Go 

Nothing But Love (Jay Leno performance)

And Dwight's been on NPR, talking about the new songs.

Like I said: Christmas.


  1. Can't wait to get my hands on some new Dwight Yoakam music...can't believe it's been that long.

    Gonna download the album tonight.

  2. What Sam said. I love Dwight Yoakam so much. I saw him at the Missouri State Fair in 1989. Clint Black was the opening act. Terrific show.
