GRAMMY Award-winner Dwight Yoakam took home the 2013 Americana Music Honors & Awards most prestigious award for Artist of the Year last night in celebration of his critically-acclaimed album 3 Pears. This is the first time Yoakam has won this award. Spending a record breaking eight weeks at the top of the Americana Charts, the most of any album, Yoakam dominated Best Of 2012 Lists with 3 Pears, including NPR, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly and American Songwriter, among others. As well, 3 Pears marks Yoakam’s 26th studio album and his highest-charting “Billboard 200” debut.

“Thank you to the Americana Music Association for the enormous honor you have given me and the 3 Pears album tonight,” said Yoakam. “Though I’m still physically in Canada finishing a tour, my heart is there with all of you and I am humbled by having been given the Artist of The Year Award.”

In his three-decade career, Yoakam has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, including 12 gold albums and 9 multi-platinum or multi-platinum albums, as well as winning 2 Grammy Awards with 21 nominations.
