Love this one...
Pete Anderson goin' off...
If you have access to Sirius XM you should check out his
“Bakersfield Beat” channel. He has interesting people on, and is a pretty good storyteller himself, his “now Dwight..” tidbits of advise from Buck are alone worth listening for
Can't go wrong with Dwight in my book. Highly underrated!
Loved him in Slingblade too!
( just one of our family's fave flicks)
Very talented guy; knockout voice, guitars, production- music just pops!
From one of my favorite CDs, La Croix D'Amour
Dwight, with a little help from his friends, saved country music in the 80’s and 90’s.
He rocks like no one else in Country, IMO.
He was great in Slingblade.....but my favorite is Panic Room. If you think Doyle in Slingblade was evil, check out Raoul....
He is good in Crank, too.
Obligatory Dwight video:
I just watched his interview with Dan Rather on The Big Interview. Always like his music.
Without Dwight it would not have happened, but yes - let's not ignore the impact Pete Anderson had... it was no secret he was the architect/visionary of that project. I don't know the story of the other members... but if it was like many other groups, they are also the unsung hero's!
I remember that time so clearly. Steve Earl Released his debut at the beginning of March in '86.... Dwight's debut followed just a week or two later. Compared to everything else at the time... that was a refreshing one - two punch.
IMO, there are a lot of "Steve Earl" types on the scene today, but we could sure use an original persona as powerful & magical as Dwight to come along and do it again!
Played "Fast as You" and "Guitars, Cadillacs..." twice this past weekend.
Don't forget Storms of Life, the debut from Randy Travis. It was released June of 1986.
Dwight? ohhh yeeaa!
This is a fantastic album.
I saw Dwight last month, and it was a great show! Dwight is so talented, but I couldn’t take my eyes off of Eugene Edwards the lead guitarist. He made it look so easy, and he was fun to watch. I will never be that good. I hate that part.
He has always had just phenomenal guitarists. Keith Gattis, Pete, Eddie Perez, and now Eugene.
I do miss Pete, though. As much for his producing as for his playing.
Seen Dwight many times. He's becoming a little like Willie. Same show, same tunes every night. But, ... what tunes and what a band. Dwight and Marty Stuart are trying to save country music every night.
I addition to everything else, Dwight was an incredible singer.
Try singing "Try Not To Look So Pretty" note for note. His agility was unreal.
Love me some Dwight.
