"It has been both a blessing and an honor to have Scott Joss as a musical accomplice, on my records and performing in my live shows over the many years he worked with me (1988-2002). His gifts, as a musician and as a harmony singer were invaluable to me. He has my enduring gratitude and respect, not only for his talented support of me, but for the selfless way he set aside his own musical ego while helping to give bouyance to my own artistic expression" - Dwight Yoakam
