Buenas Noches from a Lonely Room is the third album by country singer Dwight Yoakam. The album contains Yoakam's first (and, as of 2017, only) two No. 1 Hot Country Singles singles. The first was "Streets of Bakersfield," a duet with country music veteran Buck Owens, who had originally released a version of the song in 1973. The second was an original composition of Yoakam's titled "I Sang Dixie." A third song on the album, "I Got You, also an original composition, peaked at No. 5. The title song, "Buenas Noches from a Lonely Room (She Wore Red Dresses)," also charted, but only to the No. 46 position.
The album was one of Rolling Stones' highest rated albums of 1988, at number 14. The album was also included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. Writing in 2014, the alternative weekly Nashville Scene said the album "established him (Yoakam) as a master of persona, as well as an ingenious record-maker and self-deprecating songwriter."
