Dwight Yoakam Barely Dodges Traffic In New Music Video For ‘Liar’

Dwight Yoakam is back and rockin’ harder than ever, especially in his brand new music video for his newest song “Liar“.

This music video is unique though. It features Dwight and his band rockin’ out in the back of a black El Camino as traffic passes by. Fun fact: it’s not part of the set. It’s actual Sunset Strip traffic. Los Angeles cleared them to film at that spot, but it didn’t come without its dangers. On KTLA radio, Dwight admitted with a laugh, “We almost got clipped once.” Oops!

Liar” was released on Dwight’s 2015 album, Second Hand Heart. The album peaked at #2 on the US Top Country Albums (Billboard) chart, which makes it his highest charting album since Buenas Noches from a Lonely Room was released in 1988. Congratulations, Dwight!

And it doesn’t hurt that his new song is just so classically Dwight. His sound has never changed. Thank you for that, Mr. Yoakam!


You say that you will
When I know that you won’t
You say that you do
Baby when I know you don’t
Really love me
You never loved me at all
Honey you never tried
If you did you would have had to crawl

You say that I did
Baby when you know I don’t
You said that I will
When you knew that I won’t
Ever love you
No I would not even try
Look if you say it again
I’ll swear that’s just one big lie

Oh you say that you do
But we both know you don’t
You still say that you will
When it’s so for sure you won’t
Ever love me
No you never even try
From the first day we met
And you said it, that was a lie
