      David Allan Coe

      Life-long renegade and ex-convict David Allan Coe is an American songwriter and outlaw country music singer who first achieved popularity during the 1970s and 1980s. DAC became a stalwart touring icon and remains one of the most colorful and unpredictable characters in country music history. As a recording artist, some of his biggest 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." Dozens of others have become cult standards and his many compositions recorded by others, including Johnny Cash, George Jones, Willie Nelson, Leon Russell, Charlie Louvin, Del Reeves, Tammy Wynette, Melba Montgomery, Stoney Edwards, The Oakridge Boys and Kid Rock have been chart topping successes, like the No. 1 million sellers "Would You Lay With Me (In a Field of Stone)," covered by Tanya Tucker; and "Take This Job and Shove It," which was covered by Dead Kennedys and Johnny Paycheck. It was Paycheck's only #1 hit, spending 18 weeks on the charts. That title also became a hit movie, with both Coe and Paycheck acting in the film. Coe has acted in other movies including Stagecoach with Willie Nelson, The Last Days of Frank and Jessie James, Lady Grey and Buckstone County Prison, to mention a few. He was a featured performer in the 1975 documentary Heartworn Highways.
