Acclaim for Coe's songs — sometimes tender, invariably well-observed, often earthy but always funny with it — was running only a little ahead of praise for his versatile and emotive baritone.
In the country and western industry, where forgetting to say grace can be enough to mark you down as a dangerous troublemaker, this outsider was on the verge of acceptance: a part of country's new and exciting "outlaw" scene alongside the likes of Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson, with George Jones and Tammy Wynette among those recording his songs.
Coe's next move defied all logic. He independently released an album called Nothing Sacred: the songs were as crafted as anything on his major-label LPs, but the subject matter was of a decidedly different hue. Nothing Sacred wasn't the final nail Coe would attempt to hammer into the coffin he was busy fashioning around his own career.
That came in with its follow-up, Underground Album. Among the X-rated material this time was something that pushed the outrage even further: a song in which Coe wrote from the point of view of a white man whose partner had left him and their kids for a black man. He called it Nigger Fucker. That's the mentality he was on. Coe has consistently denied ever holding racist views — at the time of Underground Album's release, the drummer in his touring band was black — but too much of that self-flung mud stuck.
By the time Napster was invented, Coe's name was being wrongly attached to MP3s of real race-hate country songs — the micro-genre he had set out to satirise. Shunned by the Nashville establishment that had been about to embrace him, his career went into steep decline. Bad business decisions and alimony to numerous ex-wives didn't help: for a time he was so hard up he briefly lived in a cave. Today, aged 71, the writer of a claimed 10, songs relies on gigs for his income — last weekend he played four two-hour sets at a biker festival in Florida.
He declines interview requests because of poor hearing. While Coe's career never recovered, Ice Cube's has followed a more surprising trajectory.
