Nearly 40 of Yoakam’s singles have charted on Billboard, with 14 peaking in the Top 10.

Jobe Fortner will open for Dwight Yoakam. Hailing from Dahlonega, Georgia, country singer and songwriter Jobe Fortner’s musical roots run deep. His debut self-titled EP was released in early 2018 and sparked a different level of buzz for Fortner. It garnered the attention of other national acts which led to opening gigs for many artists including Luke Combs, Riley Green, Toby Keith, Cadillac Three, Whiskey Myers, Cody Johnson, The Steel Woods, and Frankie Ballard.
