David Allan Coe, Confederate Railroad bound for Ohio Theatre
LIMA, Ohio – Outlaw country pioneer David Allan Coe and legendary Southern rockers Confederate Railroad will bring their iconic shows to The Ohio Theatre on Friday, Dec. 8.
Rising star Wyatt McCubbin, an Ohio native who’s drawn comparisons to Waylon Jennings, will open the 7:30 p.m. concert. Tickets are $30 and will go on sale Oct. 6 at limaohiotheatre.com. Minors must be accompanied by an adult.
Born in Akron, Coe spent three years in the notorious Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, made famous in the film, Shawshank Redemption.
Paroled in 1967, Coe moved to Nashville and embarked on an unlikely career as a singer-songwriter, initially living out of the back of a red Cadillac hearse. His early successes included writing Tanya Tucker’s 1974 chart-topper, “Would You Lay with Me (In a Field of Stone),” and Johnny Paycheck’s 1978 workingman’s classic, “Take This Job and Shove It.”
Coe’s best-known songs include “Now I Lay Me Down to Cheat,” “The Ride,” “You Never Even Called Me by My Name,” “Mona Lisa Lost Her Smile,” “Long Haired Redneck” and the witty “Divers Do It Deeper.
Confederate Railroad, headed by founder and front man Danny Shirley, got its start as the road band for both Coe and Paycheck. Named the Top New Vocal Group or Duet of 1993 by the American County Music Association, it has sold more than five million albums with 18 charted singles.The Grammy-nominated "Trashy Women,” a Top 10 Country hit in 1993, serves as the group’s signature song. Other standbys include “Jesus and Mama," "Queen of Memphis," "When You Leave That Way You Can Never Go Back,” "She Never Cried” and "Daddy Never Was the Cadillac Kind." McCubbin, a deep-voiced 22-year-old, has opened for Merle Haggard, George Jones, Charlie Daniels, Dwight Yoakam, Easton Corbin, The Kentucky HeadHunters and Josh Turner. The historic Ohio Theatre, which opened in 1927, is located in downtown Lima at 122 W. North St. The information line for this event is 937-369-3693.

One of the last outlaws - Refreshing to see someone who does not care about being PC. Awesome show in his hometown.

He's a controversial person to say the least and his many years has taken a toll on him. That being said, there's no denying the fact that he made many contributions to country music specifically the outlaw side. This was my third time seeing DAC and at the same venue all three times. I just wish he had more energy in his concerts and that he had a bigger and better band. It's just great to see someone from his time still out there preforming.
