Not a country fan, but....

"I would not consider myself a country fan in the least. I do, however, enjoy many different forms of music and have a collection that makes people say "Huh?". What does all this have to do with DAC? Well, I will tell you.. of all the CDs I owned, there was NO COUNTRY... Why? Cause I can't stand the type of country that's gotten popular today and was of the first people in the crowd to throw out "crying in your beer" and "my dog left with another woman" statements about country. Though I must admit, through childhood brainwashing from my parents, I have always liked Kenny Rogers.Then a college roomate (I went down South for college) had me listen to DAC. Amazing... I really enjoyed the songs.. and, after some time, I really listened to the words and had to buy my own... this one. This CD is still THE ONLY COUNTRY CD in my collection and that's probably the way it will stay... it sits next to Rap, Classical, Jazz, Heavy Metal, Soca, Reggae, Salsa, and even some New Age.My father, who already enjoys country music heard the CD and loved it too. I let him borrow it and take it to work and his boss loved it... I had to fight to get it back! I have since gotten my father and his boss CDs... they blast the CD when no one else is in the office.Try it out, you might like it... but you have to listen."
David Allan Coe IS country

"First off, I would like to say that this is the only country CD you need. This is the only one I have, and I'm very pleased. Every song is really good. David can have slow songs, but then again a lot of the songs are just good ole country, and some of it's funny...like the last verse of "You Never Even Called Me By My Name." Also, if you can, check out his underground cd "18 X-Rated Hits." It is foul-mouthed and funny. If you are a major country fan or whatever, I bet you'll like this CD."

"This is country when country wasn't cool. This is for true country fans, not fans of the overpopularized [junk]that frequents the radio in this day and age.
In response to the comments about his racist songs on the internet, most of them are actually Johnny Rebel misnamed, don't think everything on the internet is real, besides, most good country singers do have racist songs, even Merle Haggard has "I'm a white boy." Its freedom of speach."
