Yoakam didn’t sell as well as Brooks, the era’s reigning big hat, nor did he really try.Brooks was a natural-born crossover artist who covered Billy Joel and aspired to arena-rock production values; Yoakam, meanwhile, had the instincts of a preservationist, reviving the career of his mentor Buck Owens by inviting him to duet on 1988’s mariachi-accented “Streets of Bakersfield,” one of Yoakam’s two no. But Yoakam became a pop star anyway, and he dated one of the era’s hottest starlets, Sharon Stone, though the relationship didn’t end amicably.After high school he enrolled at Ohio State, but he lasted only two years before hightailing it to Nashville in 1976 with dreams of launching a music career.He didn’t last long there, either — Nashville was a songwriters’ town, but Yoakam wasn’t yet a songwriter.When he was still just a teenager, he was a rowdy nightclub singer equally versed in Appalachian music and the James Gang.
