Music Garden announces that David Allen Coe and his band will be performing on Thursday March 7, 2013 at FloBama Concert Hall in Florence, Alabama. Coe is a living legend and will surely sell out the number one nightspot in the Florence, Sheffield, and Muscle Shoals Alabama area.

David Allan Coe is an outlaw country music singer who achieved popularity in the 1970s and 1980s. As a singer, his biggest hits 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 best-known songs are the No. 1 successes "Would You Lay With Me (In a Field of Stone)," which was covered by Tanya Tucker; and "Take This Job and Shove It," which was later covered by Johnny Paycheck.
