EDITORS’ NOTES

With Dwight Yoakam's 1986 debut album, country music's neo-traditionalist movement exploded into the public consciousness. Besides injecting old-school classics like Johnny Horton’s "Honky Tonk Man" and Johnny Cash’s "Ring of Fire" with a touch of rock 'n' roll spirit, he also showed that he could pen his own equally worthy tunes. The title track shuffles along on a Ray Price-style boogie, while the Maria McKee-featuring “Bury Me” combines bluegrass with rockabilly, and “South of Cincinnati” would be at home in any tearstained barroom.
