Dwight Yoakam is coming back to town.

The “Guitars, Cadillacs” and “Fast As You” country singer will play Stir Cove on May 23.

Tickets to see Yoakam go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday via Ticketmaster.

The Grammy-winning country star has released 15 albums, earning 14 top-10 country hits, two that went all the way to No. 1.

Yoakam’s last album came in 2016, but two new singles, “Pretty Horses” and “Then Came Monday” (the latter written with Chris Stapleton), were released earlier this year.

Yoakam is a frequent and popular performer in the area, stopping in Lincoln in 2016 and 2017 and playing Baxter Arena this year. — Kevin Coffey
