HEARTACHES BY THE NUMBER

Speaking of country music “clichés” (see last week’s David Allan Coe post), David Cantwell writes in Heartaches by the Number, “Guitar, Cadillacs, hillbilly music, and ‘lonely, lonely streets that I call home’ are what Dwight Yoakum focuses upon on his second charting single. As iconography goes, that list is about as received a collection of country signifiers as you could possibly imagine.”


490.  Guitars, Cadillacs • Dwight Yoakam • 1986


Get it: Guitars Cadillacs Etc. Etc.
