David Allan Coe
Like Merle Haggard before him, David Allan Coe served time in prison before setting his dreams on becoming a country music star. Coe headed to Nashville in 1967 and found his first big success over five years later — as a songwriter. 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 compositions 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 and inspired a hit movie; both Coe and Paycheck had minor parts in the film).
Brushville includes bass guitarist Marc Broomby, drummer Darin Holthaus, lead guitarist/fiddle player Kirk Ellis, and rhythm guitarist/lead vocalist Dustin Reynolds. Their four-part harmony and tight musicianship add to the aesthetic of the heartfelt songs.
Even though they are known for their live performance, their first album in 2014 made waves in the industry. One week after release, self-titled album Brushville rose to No. 1 on the Billboard Heatseeker chart and No. 22 on iTunes Top Country Albums chart. Vince Hoffard of the Southern called them, “one of the best new bands in the industry.” The album was produced by multiple Grammy® winning, platinum producer Kyle Lehning. Lehning is credited with producing for legendary Randy Travis and Dan Seals. “Baby’s Got Her Boots On,” the first single of the album was co-written by Tyler Farr. Nashville songwriting veterans Rhett Akins and Ben Hayslip co-wrote the second single, “Dangerous.” They are known for songs by Blake Shelton and Jason Aldean.
In March 2018 “Girl in a Trucker Hat” single was released to excited crowds and national radio airplay. In the summer of 2018, they released their second album, Taking You Higher to rave reviews from critics and audiences. Recorded at Eclipse Studio in Bloomington with Grammy-nominated producer Erik Nelson, Taking You Higher is a blend of modern country and good old fashioned rock n roll. The album keeps the upbeat rockin country sound that made the band electric from the beginning.
