American outlaw country music singer David Allan Coe will perform at 8 p.m. Saturday, June 9, at the Avalon Theatre, 645 Main St.

Coe’s lengthy bio at details his early troubles with the law beginning with reform school at the age of 9 followed by 20 years in correctional facilities as well as his musical success in the 1970s and 1980s.

Among his most popular recordings during that time were “Mona Lisa Lost Her Smile,” “The Ride,” “You Never Even Called Me by My Name,” “She Used to Love Me a Lot” and “Longhaired Redneck.”

His success at writing No. 1 songs was equally recognized with Tanya Tucker’s 1973 single “Would You Lay With Me (In a Field of Stone)” and Johnny Paycheck’s “Take This Job and Shove It.”

More recent collaborations have paired Coe with Pantera’s guitarist the late Dimebag Darrell.

“The two musicians, struck by the similarity of the approaches between country and heavy metal, agreed to work together, and began production on an album,” the bio said.

“Rebel Meets Rebel” was released two years after Darrell’s murder, and it was described by Allmusic as a “groundbreaking” country metal album. 

“Coe toured as the opening act for Kid Rock in 2000, and he wrote the song ‘Single Father,’ which appeared on Kid Rock’s self-titled album, and was released as a single, peaking at No. 50 on the Billboard Country Singles chart,” the bio said.

Tickets are $25 and $30, and can be purchased at City Market stores, by calling 866-464-2626, or at
