Dwight Yoakam and wife Emily Joyce: The Secret Love Story

First Chapter: A Series of Failed Relationships

Dwight Yoakam, 64, has been known for his signature hat and pioneering style of country music, launching him from a star to country’s biggest influences. But aside from having a well-decorated music career, Yoakam is also a critically-acclaimed actor starring in award-winning films. 

Despite his success in both music and film, Yoakam remained unlucky in his love life. Over the years, he dated a few high-profile women but left with a string of failed relationships. 

Back in 1992, he was linked with Sharon Stone, and the pair enjoyed a sweet time together before they parted ways. After Stone, Yoakam dated Dumb and Dumber actress Karen Duffy, but their relationship only lasted for a year. Then in 1999, he got linked with actress Bridget Fonda, but they called it quits in 2002. There had also been rumors of his short-lived relationship with Wynonna Judd, but the two remained mum, and then the rumors quickly cooled down after. 

And then in 2013, Dwight Yoakam made his first public appearance with English actress Emily Joyce. The pair did not make any official announcements regarding their relationship, but it looked like they were definitely in love. And according to sources, the pair met in 2010 at a live concert. And then in January 2014, Dwight attended Warner Music Group’s annual Grammy celebration with Emily at Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, California. After that, Emily made a staple appearance on Dwight’s red carpet.
