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. Coe then toured with Grand Funk Railroad, a signal that he drew as much from rock's traditions as he did from country. Soon, he began performing in a rhinestone suit given to him by Mel Tillis, as well as a Lone Ranger mask, and began calling himself the "Masked Rhinestone Cowboy." Coe’s of his songs also found success with other musicians: in 1972, Billie Jo Spears had a hit with his "Souvenirs & California Mem'rys," and in 1973, Tanya Tucker had a number one hit with Coe's "Would You Lay With Me (In a Field of Stone)." After Tucker's hit, Coe became one of Nashville's hottest songwriters;
some of the biggest country artists -- including Willie Nelson, George Jones, and Tammy Wynette -- recorded his tunes, leading to his own contract with Columbia Records. During his 13-year association with Columbia, Coe released 26 albums, including the double-album set, For the Record: The First 10 Years
(1984), 1986's Son of the South
(featuring Willie, Waylon, Jessi Colter, and other "outlaws"), and the highly regarded A Matter of Life and Death
(1987). For more information about David, visit www.davidallancoe.com.
