Today is a special treat for music fans in general and country fans specifically.

Music legend Dwight Yoakam drops his latest studio album - which he called, Second Hand Heart. 

Yoakam has sold more than 25 million records and landed more than 30 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts.

We recently stopped by his office in West Hollywood to talk about it, his contributions to the genre known as "cowpunk" and the sometimes overlooked influence California has had on country music.
