David Allan Coe is a rebel in country music, definitely not for the faint of heart. Coe had a rough life and a restless soul. From age 9 to 18, Coe spent time in various correctional facilities. At the age of 20, Coe actually spent time in prison. In prison, Coe learned to play guitar and began writing songs about his experiences. When he was released from prison in 1967, Coe headed straight to Nashville in hopes of beginning his music career.
At one time Coe lived in a hearse in front of the then Grand Old Opry, but it got him noticed by a record label, and he eventually signed with them. In Nashville some thought his songs were too raw, rough and harsh. But yet he found a fan base, and to this day, David Allan Coe shares his music to tons of fans across America.
