Dwight Yoakam - '3 Pears' (2012)

In 2012, Dwight Yoakam returned with 3 Pears, his first collection of new songs since Blame the Vain. This swampy cut is strung out on high-wire guitar and murky lyrics about heartbreak (I think). It's a glorious exercise in atmosphere that's the sonic analogue of "Dim Lights, Thick Smoke," another album highlight. The spirit of Buck Owens is still with us.

Song Lyric: "I wonder why you never try to understand a heart like mine."
