Legendary country-music outlaw David Allen Coe quick-draws decades of pure honky-tonk from his holster in a rowdy showcase of renegade songwriting. For decades, Coe’s career has bobbed between the mainstream and the decidedly underground, veering from Top 10 hits “You Never Even Called Me By My Name” and “Mona Lisa Lost Her Smile” to racy titles unfit for print on most all-ages billboards. Armed with his signature rebel guit-fiddle, throaty baritone, and salty songbook that holds tunes covered by Johnny Paycheck and Tanya Tucker, Coe slings clever twists on country tropes such as hard jobs, hard time, and graphic design.
