Dwight Yoakam showed everyone he still has what it takes to be one of country music’s most notable stars with his performance this week on ‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.’ On Wednesday (Aug. 15), Yoakam gave his fans and peers a first taste of what they can expect from his forthcoming studio album, ’3 Pears,’ with a flawless performance of his song ‘Nothing But Love.’

Yoakam looked the part of pure country with his signature cowboy hat tucked low over his brow, his denim jacket and his skin-tight jeans, which admittedly make us wonder how he ever gets them on and off. As he played, Yoakam strummed away on his vintage guitar and swiveled his hips and legs along to the beat of ‘Nothing But Love,’ impressing viewers.

Look for Yoakam’s ’3 Pears’ album to hit stores on Sept. 18. The week following its release, the classic singer will be honored by the Academy of Country Music with the Cliffie Stone Pioneer Award at the 6th Annual ACM Honors event, to be held on Sept. 24 in Nashville. The prestigious award honors individuals who are pioneers in the country music genre. Past recipients include Johnny Cash, Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Hank Williams, Sr. and Hank Williams, Jr.
