David Allan Coe is one of the pioneering artists of the outlaw country movement of the 1970’s, producing a large cult following over the decades. Coe’s hits include “Mona Lisa Lost Her Smile,” “The Ride,” “You Never Even Called Me by My Name,” “She Used to Love Me a Lot,” and “Longhaired Redneck.” Coe released his debut album, Penitentiary Blues, in 1968.

After Tucker's hit, Coe became one of Nashville's hottest songwriters;
