American music treasure Dwight Yoakam’s special collaboration with leading bluegrass label Sugar Hill Records, Swimmin’ Pools, Movie Stars… is set for release September 30 via Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. For the making of this album, Yoakam assembled a band of bluegrass luminaries to reinterpret favourites from his catalogue of gems.

Yoakam’s choice to partner with Sugar Hill for this release speaks volumes about the seriousness of this endeavour; Sugar Hill and its sister label Rounder have long been at the forefront of bluegrass, roots, and Americana music. This project was produced by nine‐time Grammy winner Gary Paczosa (Alison Krauss, Dolly Parton), Jon Randall (songwriter of Whiskey Lullaby) and Yoakam, recorded at both Southern Ground Studio (TN) and the legendary Capitol Records Studio B in Los Angeles ...
