"Second Hand Heart"
It's where the Ohio-raised artist moved after finding Nashville inhospitable to the style of honky-tonk music he was woodshedding -- and it's also where he found kindred spirits, such as punks X and the rootsier The Blasters, both of whom took vintage country and rockabilly influences and dragged them into the modern age. Yoakam's music certainly sounded out of time in the s, when he first emerged, in the best possible ways. Hiss first three full-length albums -- 's Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc. The latter album also spawned two No. That mix of originals and well-curated covers served Yoakam well in the ensuing decades, as he grew into an heir to the Owens- and Merle Haggard -popularized "Bakersfield sound" and launched a parallel successful acting career. Today, Yoakam continues to write and release music and tour, embracing his status as a link to country music's past who's nevertheless always pushing himself forward. Name aside, Second Hand Heart wasn't a covers album, but a collection largely full of original, Yoakam-penned tunes -- such as the title track, an easygoing slice of throwback heartland country-rock.
