Outlaw Country Star David Allan Coe Sentenced For Tax Evasion

Outlaw country singer David Allan Coe is now (sort of) an actual outlaw after being sentenced to tax evasion earlier this week. The 76-year-old musician — who made his name off of a string of songs in the ’70s and ’80s with names like “Take This Job And Shove It,” “Mona Lisa’s Lost Her Smile,” and “Now I Lay Me Down To Cheat” — has been ordered to pay the IRS more than $980,000 after failing to pay back taxes, according to the New York Post. Last year, he pleaded guilty to “one count of impeding and obstructing administration of tax law.” Coe was sentenced to three years of probation.
