The Very Best of Dwight Yoakam

This comprehensive anthology reminds us that Dwight Yoakam emerged in the ’80s as an heir to old-schoolers like Johnny Horton and Buck Owens, both of whom he covers. But while he extended the country tradition with tunes like the Johnny Cash-indebted “Turn It On, Turn It Up, Turn Me Loose,” cuts like the sophisticated string-laden ballad “Ain’t That Lonely Yet” and the country/rock collision on his cover of Cheap Trick’s “I Want You to Want Me” edged country music forward without losing its roots.
