DAVID ALLAN COE: www.officialdavidallancoe.com
If there's ever been a way to describe DAC, it has got to be his ability to defy categorization. With nearly three decades of following his musical muse wherever it's led, this outlaw has crossed the panorama of American roots music.

As well as being a singer, songwriter, guitarist, David is also a magician, deep sea treasure hunter and movie star. His movies include "Stagecoach", "The Last Days of Frank and Jessie James". "Lady Grey", "Buckstone County Prison" and "Take This Job and Shove It" to mention a few. David signed with SUN Records in 1968 and recorded his first album "Penitentiary Blues", all songs that he wrote in prison. In 1973 Columbia Records bought David's contract from Sun and he recorded his first album "The Mysterious Rhinestone Cowboy" several years before Glen Campbell had a hit with the song "Rhinestone Cowboy".

Much has been written about David's past and his lifestyle but not much about his achievements over the years. From performing on FARM AID to touring with NEIL YOUNG, KID ROCK and WILLIE NELSON. David's song "Take This Job and Shove It" has received a Million Airplays Certificate from BMI. His "Greatest Hits Album" is PLATINUM and his "First Ten Years Album" is GOLD. He has had sixty-three songs on the Billboard Singles Charts, including "Mona Lisa Lost Her Smile", "The Ride", "Please Come to Boston", "Willie, Waylon and Me", "Jack Daniels If You Please", "You Never Even Call Me By My Name" to name a few. He has written songs for Johnny Paycheck, Tanya Tucker, George Jones, Willie Nelson, Del Reeves, Tammy Wynette, Melba Montgomery, Stoney Edwards, The Oakridge Boys and KID ROCK. Both "Would You Lay with Me" and "Take This Job and Shove It" are million seller songs penned by David. Johnny Cash had recorded David's songs including "Would You Lay with Me" on his current chart topping album entitled "CASH". His tour schedule is never-ending list of SOLD OUT shows. He performs both Country and Rock shows depending on the venue. David also plays in many Casinosí where he does Las Vegas type shows.

David's newest album is on Cleveland International Records. It is called "Songwriter of the Tear" and includes all songs written by David including "The Penny", "Drink Canada Dry", "The Ghost of Hank Williams", "Standing Too close To the Flame", "The Only Thing Missing Is You", "Desperate Man" and others.


THE JOMPSON BROTHERS: www.facebook.com/TheJompsonBrothers
The Jompson Brothers were born in a garage in Nashville, TN as a result of late-night jam sessions between former SteelDrivers frontman Chris Stapleton (vocals, guitar) and Greg McKee (guitar). Bard McNamee (drums) and J.T. Cure (bass) were soon added to the equation, more jamming ensued, and the band was complete.

Their self-titled debut (produced by Frank Rogers) was released in the Fall of 2010 and has drawn comparisons to Led Zeppelin, Gov't Mule, and Drive-By Truckers. The band has spent 2011 playing shows all around the Southeast to eager and enthusiastic crowds. During that time, the guys have shared stages with North Mississippi Allstars, J. Roddy Walston and The Business, Darius Rucker, The Felice Brothers and more.
