David Allan Coe
If there's ever been a way to describe DAC, it has got to be his ability to defy categorization. With nearly three decades of following his musical muse wherever it's led, this outlaw has crossed the panorama of American roots music.
As well as being a singer, songwriter, guitarist, David is also a magician, deep sea treasure hunter and movie star. His movies include "Stagecoach", "The Last Days of Frank and Jessie James". "Lady Grey", "Buckstone County Prison" and "Take This Job and Shove It" to mention a few. David signed with SUN Records in 1968 and recorded his first album "Penitentiary Blues", all songs that he wrote in prison. In 1973 Columbia Records bought David's contract from Sun and he recorded his first album "The Mysterious Rhinestone Cowboy" several years before Glen Campbell had a hit with the song "Rhinestone Cowboy".
Much has been written about David's past and his lifestyle but not much about his achievements over the years. From performing on FARM AID to touring with NEIL YOUNG, KID ROCK and WILLIE NELSON. David's song "Take This Job and Shove It" has received a Million Airplays Certificate from BMI. His "Greatest Hits Album" is PLATINUM and his "First Ten Years Album" is GOLD. He has had sixty-three songs on the Billboard Singles Charts, including "Mona Lisa Lost Her Smile", "The Ride", "Please Come to Boston", "Willie, Waylon and Me", "Jack Daniels If You Please", "You Never Even Call Me By My Name" to name a few. He has written songs for Johnny Paycheck, Tanya Tucker, George Jones, Willie Nelson, Del Reeves, Tammy Wynette, Melba Montgomery, Stoney Edwards, The Oakridge Boys and KID ROCK. Both "Would You Lay with Me" and "Take This Job and Shove It" are million seller songs penned by David. Johnny Cash had recorded David's songs including "Would You Lay with Me" on his current chart topping album entitled "CASH". His tour schedule is never-ending list of SOLD OUT shows. He performs both Country and Rock shows depending on the venue. David also plays in many Casinos’ where he does Las Vegas type shows.
David's newest album is on Cleveland International Records. It is called "Songwriter of the Tear" and includes all songs written by David including "The Penny", "Drink Canada Dry", "The Ghost of Hank Williams", "Standing Too close To the Flame", "The Only Thing Missing Is You", "Desperate Man" and others.
Perhaps now, David can finally take his place alongside the great stars of Country music, many of whom he influenced.

By the late sixties, she fronted seminal Texas rock bands in the Houston and Dallas area. She spent her formative years kicking around the early Austin music scene, rubbing shoulders with the elite of the Texas music community. She spent two years honing her own style of country blues at the Texas Opry House in the mid-seventies.
In 1998, she did a self produced album of original songs and covers called "Barricades", recording three songs at the famous Sun Studios in Memphis, Tennessee.
In 1999, she met Jim White, a cult favorite, alt-country singer songwriter, and began working with him. After doing back up vocals on two albums. Jim gave her a big break, by asking her to sing his music on a album he wanted to produce himself. Jim White created "Mama Lucky", and the album "Permanent Stranger" was released in 2009.
The new album, "Linda Sue and Dorothy Jean" is now available online at lsdtexasmusic.com. Leaving Mama Lucky behind and forging her own identity, the music has taken on a a new strength and ever changing creativity.
