Twenty-four years ago today on December 14th, 1991, singer Dwight Yoakam made his acting debut on the short-lived TV series P.S. I Luv U. Since that time, he has gone on to act in a number of TV shows and feature films, including the 1996 Oscar winner, Sling Blade. But in the decade before that infamous role, the California-based Yoakam was at the forefront of the neo-traditionalist movement in country music, his hit singles and albums earning raves for their electrifying mix of styles emulating, among them, Gram Parsons, the Byrds and Buck Owens.
