Dwight Yoakam performed a special concert for SiriusXM last night (Aug. 30) at the Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett, N.Y.
The hip-shaking country music superstar treated listeners to signature songs from his 30-plus-year career, including “Please, Please Baby,” as well a few covers from his vast repertoire, including “Little Queenie,” which Chuck Berry recorded in 1959, and “Little Sister,” which Elvis Presley recorded in 1961 (Dwight covered the tune on his 1987 album, Hillbilly Deluxe).
Additionally, Dwight Yoakam & The Bakersfield Beat, a channel curated by Dwight, will take over SiriusXM’s Prime Country for a limited time and will feature music from his career, musical friends and heroes. Dwight Yoakam & The Bakersfield Beat will air Sept. 1 through Sept. 4 on channel 58.
Check out the video below that features Dwight singing “Little Queenie,” “Please, Please Baby” and “Little Sister.”
