Songs We Love is a series and a podcast that looks at the stories behind some of the songs we're playing on our new music discovery stream, WUNC Music.

On this episode, Eric Hodge chats with Sarah Shook of Sarah Shook & The Disarmers about her song 'Dwight Yoakam' from the album Sidelong.

Shook says 'Dwight Yoakam' is a song of irony. It tells the tale of a person being left behind not for a famous person, but for someone who can sing like a famous person.

"That song is very unique, in that it's the only song I've ever written where I cried the entire time I was writing it."
