Dwight Yoakam Speaks Out on Chafing

by Trailer - Originally posted on Country California, Friday, May 21, 2010 

Dwight Yoakam has taken on the yoke, so to speak, of bringing a seldom considered - but quite serious health matter to the forefront of the American consciousness. The twangy country singer/actor has signed on with NADDS (National Abrasion Detection & Deletion Society) to appear in their television and radio spots promoting the awareness of severe groin chafing. 

"This was a perfect fit for me, no pun intended," laughed Yoakam, who has been known to wear his boot cut jeans a bit on the tight side. "So I thought, hell, why not?" 

Lou Brickant, founder and head spokesperson for NADDS, told us: "Like ball and glove, this will be a close relationship; we'll be sponsoring D-Y's next tour and handing out pamphlets and comfort packets at each show. Lap wellness is a severely overlooked personal health issue in this nation and we intend to bring awareness to the fans' genital areas." 

Yoakam says he has taken steps in his life and career to prevent chafing which he thinks would benefit all his fans as well. "I've traded the painted-on jeans for merely wallpapered-on jeans and I've started liberally applying Blue Star ointments and powders to prevent rash and chafing. I've learned to pamper my package." 

Dwight has even written the hygiene issue into the first single from his forthcoming album. "It's called 'Blue Star Baby' and it's about a woman who hangs on waaay too tight," said Yoakam, fidgeting in his seat out of habit. 

The singer's 52-date "Saving the American Crotch" tour begins Friday, June 11 in Crested Butte, CO and continues through summer before wrapping up in Dicktown, NJ in September.

If (Classic Country Song) Was Bro-Country

Since bro-country seems to be making a slight return this summer, it seems like a good time to bring back this feature.

If (Classic Country Song) Was Bro-Country

Patsy Cline - She's Got You

I've got your picture
That you Snapped to me
Screen-shot it with love
Showed it to my homies
Ain't nothing different
Since we've been through
I've got your picture
It's a nude

Waylon & Willie - Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys

Mammas don't let your babies grow up to soyboys
Don't let 'em dip pouches or vote for no cucks
Let 'em be hotties and frat boys and such
Mammas don't let your babies grow up to soyboys
'Cause they'll never lift, bro, and they'll never roll coal
They won't even drive a truck

Tammy Wynette - Stand By Your Man

Stand by your man,
In cut off shorts that cling to,
That shaker mama gave you 
Move that thing like a pony

Dwight Yoakam - Guitars, Cadillacs

Now it's roll bars, rifle racks, Lil Dicky music
Dusty gravel roads that I chill on
Yeah my roll bars, rifle racks, Lil Dicky music
Keep this party lit till the night is gone

Dwight Yoakam and Brothers Osborne Perform "Fast as You"

There's another guy on the performance as well, but I don't acknowledge his existence anymore (in a positive manner).

Was that you who left all those vulgar comments on Luke Bryan's Facebook page?

I Saw Dwight Last Night

I saw Dwight Yoakam (for the first time) with The Steel Woods last night. It was fantastic. I'm too lazy to write a proper review, but trust me when I say he's every bit the performer you imagine - a legend still in prime shape vocally and as a performer. The Steel Woods were great too - playing 6-7 songs from their (top 10 of '17 for me) album Straw in the Wind and a cover of "Yesterday's Wine." Dwight was in a good mood for his set - pulling out a few songs he rarely plays these days (according to set lists I've seen) and a ton of covers. Our Governor, Phil Bryant, visited Dwight before the show and made a song request that surprised Yoakam, but he played it. "Buenos Noches From a Lonely Room," a spare and cold murder ballad, isn't what you'd expect a state head honcho to be into, but I'm glad he is. Anyway, here's the set list from the show.

Dwight Yoakam, Chris & Morgane Stapleton - Seven Spanish Angels (CMA Awards)

This video keeps getting removed from YouTube for copyright reasons (not my recording). I'll try to keep it live... perhaps if the CMA would post the damn thing officially, they wouldn't have this issue...

Country Graphic Design Nerd Humor

@TheJackalopeTX sent me this. 

So of course I had to make a bunch of my own typeface/country song mashups. 
Random and nerdy, but what else would you expect from us?
