Dwight Yoakam - The Heart That You Own

"The Heart That You Own" is lifted from Dwight Yoakam's fourth album, 1990's If There Was A Way. Taking its cue from other classic country songs, Yoakam is singing about love, not real estate when he's singing "I pay rent on a run-down place, there ain't no view but there's lots of space... in my heart, the heart that you own". It's a perfect, sentimental country tune, full of heartbreak and emotional pain, a haunting steel guitar and Yoakam's awesome voice. Most of the things that are good about country music is here, distilled and refined into a three minute song. If his career should fail, Yoakam could start a country academy armed with this song alone, because this is exactly how it's done!
