Dwight Yoakam

There's Something Familiar

About That Taylor Swift Song

EXCLUSIVE

061214_dwight_yoakam_launch
Dwight Yoakam has a funny way of complimenting Taylor Swift ... 'cause even though country music icon did say Taylor's music qualifies as country -- he also kinda slammed the content of her songs. . 

Yoakam was in a good mood when our photog spotted him at LAX yesterday ... and we hit him with the big Swift question: Is she a genuine country artist?

Dwight gave Taylor props, but when we asked him to name his favorite song by her ... he dropped a pretty funny diss -- in a charming country sorta way.

Watch. It's funny cause it's true.

I like that he signs autographs but don't sign for old men who have a dozen and are obviously going to sell them
