Dwight Yoakam covers Prince

Dwight Yoakam is a badass, and i will fight to the death anyone who claims otherwise.  The "too-country-for-rock-radio, too-rock-for-country-radio" troubadour has been meshing old school country music, rockabilly, bluegrass, folk, and rock n' roll together for decades, penning and covering classics along the way.  On his upcoming "Swimmin' Pools, Movie Stars..." LP, the legend covers another legend, turning Prince's "Purple Rain"  into a folky ballad...and it works!  Listen below and get the album from Sugar Hill Records.
