Since he’s been known to dabble in acting himself, you might consider the “post-stardom” phase of Dwight Yoakam’s career as like a leading man whose character roles grow more fascinating and satisfying once his box-office luster fades a bit. The Kentucky native and avatar of L.A. country cool in the ’80s and ’90s is now 60, an appropriate age for his unofficial role as figurehead of the 21st-century alt-country and Americana scenes that would sound radically different without his influence. Certainly the two LPs Yoakam has released since re-signing to Warner Bros., 3 Pears (2012) and Second Hand Heart (2015), are as strong as anything he’s ever done, and by re-recording an album’s worth of old favorites as bluegrass tunes on last year’s Swimming Pools, Movie Stars (Sugar Hill), he follows a career-long pattern of updating classic country traditions in innovative and delightful ways. His cover of Prince’s “Purple Rain” is a hoot, too.
