*** For The Feature Page ***

I added 4 guitar tracks and a voice track to this song which was performed by David Allan Coe who is an American songwriter, outlaw country music singer, and guitarist. He achieved popularity in the 1970s and 1980s. He was in trouble pretty much his whole life.. At the age of 9 he ended up in Reform School and after that he spent much of the next 20 years in correctional facilities, including three years at the Ohio State Penitentiary. Coe received encouragement to begin writing songs during his time in prison. After concluding another prison term in 1967, Coe embarked on a music career in Nashville, living in a hearse which he parked in front of the Ryman Auditorium, where the Grand Ole Opry was located, and caught the attention of the independent record label Plantation Records, and signed a contract with them.

After the Internal Revenue Service seized his home in Key West, Florida, Coe lived in a cave in Tennessee, and later remarried and regained financial stability. Coe was involved in a serious accident on March of 2013 in Florida. According to reports, he ran a red light and hit a 18 wheeler carrying produce. His car ended up in a nearby parking lot and the truck flipped over. Coe along with a passenger in his SUV along with two occupants in the truck were taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries. He was ticketed for the accident. Here's a picture of David Allan Coe in his younger days.
