Dwight Yoakam, the country singer and actor, added another accolade to his career, when he broke the record for most musical performances on the Tonight Show. Making his 24th appearance on the show, the actor from Sling Blade and Wedding Crashers, first performed on the show in 1986 when it was still hosted by Johnny Carson. Having released the album “Dwight Sings Buck”, a tribute to Buck Owens, Yoakam had been tied with Lyle Lovett for most musical appearances.
