Country music entertainer Keith Urban admits that a picture of him trying to channel country legend Dwight Yoakam's signature style does exist....

Country music superstar Keith Urban recently admitted that he took his fashion inspiration directly from from Dwight Yoakam in the early days in his career.

“I told Dwight, ‘I hate saying this, Dwight, but I have a publicity picture of me from 1990 where I got tight stonewashed jeans with Conchos all the way up the side of my pants and a Bolero type suit jacket with the bolo tie and the snakeskin boots, I’ve got it all going on. I’m ‘Dwighting’ it to the hilt,” Urban shared during an interview with CMT following Stagecoach where he performed with the icon.

Yes, Urban created a new verb.

Watch Keith and Brothers Osborne cover Yoakam’s “Fast As You” at the 2018 Stagecoach Festival below! Yes, the audience freaked out when the eclectic Kentucky native showed up…

While Keith has developed his own personal style over the years, it’s clear that his love for Dwight hasn’t diminished one bit. His face while sharing the stage with the 61-year-old artist really says it all!

“Dwight frickin’ Yoakam!” Urban excitedly shouted into the microphone at the close of the song.

HUGE thx to @brothersosborne and @dwightyoakam for gracing our stage with your mythical mojo!!!!!! – KU #STAGECOACH 🎤🎡🔥

“Fast As You” Lyrics

Maybe someday I’ll be strong
Maybe it won’t be long
I’ll be the one who’s tough
You’ll be the one who’s got it rough
It won’t be long and
Maybe I’ll be real strong
Maybe I’ll do things right
Maybe I’ll start tonight
You’ll learn to cry like me
Baby let’s just wait and see
Maybe I’ll start tonight
And do things right
You’ll control me
And oh so boldly
Rule me ’til I’m free
‘Til the pain that shakes me
Finally makes me
Get up off of my knees
Maybe I’ll be as fast as you
Maybe I’ll break hearts too
But I think that you’ll slow down
When your turn to hurt comes around
Maybe I’ll break hearts
And be as fast as you
You’ll control me
Oh so boldly
Rule me ’til I’m free
‘Til the pain that shakes me
Finally makes me
Get up off of my knees
Maybe I’ll be as fast as you
Maybe I’ll break hearts too
But I think that you’ll slow down
When your turn to hurt comes around
Maybe I’ll break hearts and be as fast as you
Maybe I’ll break hearts and be as fast as you
Oh, sucker
Yeah, I’ll be strong, it won’t be long
I’ll be the one who’s tough
You’ll be the one who’s got it rough
You’ll learn to cry like me
Baby let’s just wait and see
Yeah, maybe I’ll be fast as you
Maybe I’ll break hearts too
