    David Allan Coe is now a convicted felon

    [​IMG]



    “Outlaw” country singer David Allan Coe is now a convicted felon.
    The “Take This Job and Shove It” singer has been ordered to pay the IRS more than $980,000 after pleading guilty to tax evasion and failing to pay $466,000 in back taxes, interest and penalties, prosecutors said.
    Coe, 76, was also sentenced Monday in Cincinnati federal court to three years’ probation.
    The singer pleaded guilty last year to one count of impeding and obstructing administration of tax laws.
    Coe — who cultivated a rabid fan following as one the leading voices of the outlaw country scene of the ‘70s — put out string of hits like “Mona Lisa’s Lost Her Smile,” “Now I Lay Me Down to Cheat” and “Jack Daniels If You Please.”
    Federal prosecutors said the singer played more than 100 concerts a year between 2008 and 2013, but asked to be paid in cash to avoid paying Uncle Sam.
    Coe wouldn’t take $50 bills, however, because “he believed they were bad luck and would not gamble with them,” according to the tax agency.
    “Mr. Coe chose to impede and obstruct the due administration of the IRS in an effort to brush aside his duty to file and pay taxes and is now a convicted felon,” said Kathy Enstrom, IRS Special Agent in Charge

    He put out an over the top racist album under a diff name back in the day. I forget what name he used back then. The guy is a nutcase, but has every right to put out the albums if they sell. Just didn't know there was still an audience for his stuff these days.

    I guess I was wrong and Johnny Rebel is not really David Allan Coe as many have claimed, but he did have a song called "N****er Fucker" on one of his albums

    Now? I'm actually surprised...certainly not his first run in w/ the law.

    "Coe was born in Akron, Ohio, on September 6, 1939. His favorite singer as a child was Johnny Ace. After being sent to the Starr Commonwealth For Boys reform school at the age of 9, 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 fromScreamin' Jay Hawkins, with whom he had spent time in prison."

    DAC has, and always will, kick ass.

    I saw him in concert about 15 years ago, and he was haggard then. I can only imagine how he is these days.
