Country renegade Dwight Yoakam is only playing two Florida shows on his autumn U.S. tour, and though neither is in Orlando, one is nearby and free! Organizers of the 24th annual Founders' Day Festival in Ocoee are going big and having Yoakam headline the Saturday of the (again, free) November weekend event.

Dwight Yoakam plays the Ocoee Founders' Day Festival for free on Saturday, Nov. 4, at Bill Breeze Park. Craig Campbell, Shenandoah, Love and Theft, and more join Yoakam on the bill for the day.
