Buenas Noches from a Lonely Room is the third consecutive No. 1 Billboard Country Album by Dwight Yoakam. It features Yoakam's first two No. 1 Hot Country Singles hits. The first was "Streets of Bakersfield," a duet with country music veteran Buck Owens, and the second was Yoakam's own composition, "I Sang Dixie." The album's third big hit was the No. 5 "I Got You," also composed by Yoakam. A lesser hit was the title song, "Buenas Noches from a Lonely Room (She Wore Red Dresses)," which only rose to the No. 46 position.
