Grammy winning singer-songwriter, actor, director and country music trailblazer Dwight Yoakam has signed with Paradigm for representation in all areas. Nashville-based agent Brian Hill will represent Yoakam for personal appearances.
As one of country music’s most recognizable artists, Yoakam has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, won two Grammy Awards and received 21 Grammy nominations. He has 12 certified gold albums and nine platinum or multi-platinum albums — five of which have been #1 on Billboard’s Country Albums chart and another 14 landing in the Top 10.
This summer Yoakam will release his first new studio album in seven years, a record he produced and which includes collaborations with Kid Rock and Beck.
An accomplished actor, Yoakam has appeared in more than 30 feature films, including “Wedding Crashers,” David Fincher’s “Panic Room,” the Academy-Award winning film “Sling Blade” (for which he was nominated for the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast), “Four Christmases” with Reese Witherspoon, and Tommy Lee Jones’ Cannes Film Festival award-winning, “The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada.”
Dwight is managed by Laura McCorkindale at Bluebird House and his attorneys are Barry Tyerman and Darren Trattner of Jackaway Tyerman.
