David Allan Coe is a man of stark personal contrasts, a highly creative artist, and one of the most unique, eccentric personalities in the history of country music. A large man with long hair, tattooed arms and tough-guy demeanor. Coe spent several years spent in prison and obtained membership in the Outlaws motorcycle club. Other sides of his writing are comedic, purposefully insulting, and crudely sexual. He has continued to write, record, and tour for decades in his own strange and special style. It is safe to say that country music will never see another artist like D.

Coe was born in Akron, Ohio , on September 6, Coe claimed he received encouragement to begin writing songs from Screamin' Jay Hawkins , with whom he had spent time in prison. After concluding another prison term in , Coe embarked on a music career in Nashville, living in a hearse which he parked in front of the Ryman Auditorium. He caught the attention of the independent record label Plantation Records and signed a contract with the label. The title of Coe's third album, The Mysterious Rhinestone Cowboy , refers to the gimmick Coe adopted several years before Glen Campbell had a hit with the song " Rhinestone Cowboy ": dressing up in a rhinestone suit and wearing a Lone Ranger mask. I met him when I first went to Nashville and he had an office down on Music Row. I was over there talking to him in his office, and he opened up the closet to get something and he had a whole closet full of rhinestone suits.
