Personalities | David Allan Coe | Country Rock & The Outlaws | Country
(Vocals, guitar, b. 1939)
Coe broke through first as a songwriter, penning tunes for Tanya Tucker (1973’s No. 1 ‘Would You Lay Me Down (In A Field Of Stone)’, Willie Nelson and George Jones. Coe scored his own hit with 1975’s ‘You Never Even Called Me By My Name’, followed by five more Top 25 hits, including ‘Willie, Waylon and Me’. Coe was never shy about promoting himself, even performing as the sparkly, masked ‘Mysterious Rhinestone Cowboy’, and he recorded prison songs and pornographic party records in addition to his country fare.
