Country roots rocker (and actor) Dwight Yoakam has returned with a new album called 3 Pears. The album is his first new studio album in seven years. Yoakam co-produced two of the songs with Beck – “A Heart Like Mine” and “Missing Heart” – and co-wrote “Take Hold Of My Hand” with Kid Rock. Below, download “”Long Way To Go” via NPR Music. It’s a classic Dwight Yoakam song with sharp, twangy, crisp guitars, a tight, never miss a beat rhythm section and Yoakam’s handsome vocals.
