Sing-A-Long with David Allan Coe at Billy Bob’s in Ft. Worth this Saturday
Isn’t it funny how when your hear a few words to a song you start singing the whole thing? Like this one, “well I was drunk the day my maw got outta prison, and I went to pick her up in the rain“. If you like singing that song, here’s your chance to do it with David Allan Coe (DAC). The 73 year old singer/songwriter Coe, will be performing live at Billy Bob’s in Fort Worth this Saturday, September 15th. I’ll bet you a buck, when Mr. Coe kicks off this song, the crowd will be singing so loud, the dead will be awakened.
Go ahead and start practicing for this Saturday night’s sing-a-long. DAC best known for, ‘You Never Called Me By My Name‘ and several other number one songs like ‘Mona Lisa Lost Her Smile‘ and the song about Hank Williams ‘The Ride‘. What you may not know, David Allan Coe has written several songs that other country stars had huge hits with like Tanya Tuckers ‘Would You Lay With Me‘ and Johnny Paychecks ‘Take This Job And Shove It‘.
David Allan Coe first toured with Grand Funk Railroad in the late 1960’s, known as the original outlaw of country music he feuded with Jimmy Buffet in the 80’s who accused him of plagiarism and copy right infringement, he went on to become friends with the late Dimebag Darrell (of the rock group Pantera) in the 90’s and opened for Kid Rock’s 2000 tour. In 2006 DAC released an album called, ‘Rebel Meets Rebel‘ the works that he and the late Dimebag Darrell had worked on from 1999 till 2003 and became known as “Country Metal” by some music critics.
While I don’t believe that the original outlaw will sing any of his songs from his underground albums, I’ll bet the show will be very entertaining. One time DAC played at the Taylor County Coliseum and I was fortunate enough to introduce him on stage, I watched in awe as this song-smith weaved his musical tales and kept us all singing-a-long with this, “but before I could get to the station in my pick-up truck”. Sorry, I know this song will be rolling around in your head all day now.
