David Allan Coe Gets Married . . . Again
On Saturday (April 17th), Outlaw country legend David Allan Coe decided to make it a six pack, and get married to long time girlfriend Kimberly Hastings. It is Coe’s sixth marriage at age 71, and Kimberly’s second at age 48. The couple has been dating for over ten years, and Kimberly regularly joins Coe on stage as a backup/duet singer.
You can see the couple performing “Ain’t That The Way” together at Billy Bob’s Texas, the biggest honky tonk in the world (and where I first saw DAC) by CLICKING HERE.
The ceremony was at The Little White Chapel in Las Vegas, and the Ford Truck Man, Toby Keith, was the official witness. The wedding was also attended by “several close friends.”
When asked why he decided to get married again, Coe responded “I got tired of making decisions for myself.”

Cool, good for them.

My informant says this is DAC’s 5th marriage. Maybe we missed someone along the way?

Don’t know man. Only other place I see reporting this at the moment is CMT, and they’re saying six as well:
Tell your informant to make sure he’s right, and if he is, contact me and I’ll do what I can to set the record straight.

in my opinion divorce’s should be free… and getting married should cost ya everything you own…

Found her! Rebecca was #5, but it only lasted a short while, apparently.

I wish them all the best !

Hilarious! He’s the Elizabeth Taylor of country music. I’m always so impressed by those folk who continue to marry despite many past failures. They are the true romantics. According to Dr Phil the divorce rate for first marriages is 50%, the second 75% … so imagine what the sixth is? Hahaha, I’m such an old cynic. I really do wish them well 😉

When you’re 71, really, who’s counting?

I thought he was Mormon and was married more times than that.

CONGRATS to DAC & THE MRS!!!

Well I know back in the day he used to have multiple wives/girlfriends and pimp them out, so really what’s the difference?

Remember Tina from El Paso? I was told she married him in the early 80`s. I knew her in El paso and always wondered what happened to her.

Tina Ware now resides in Charlotte North Carolina….Paroled and in recovery for methamphetamine addiction….Feel sorry for her, she had so much potential when she was younger…Tragic consequences of an irresponsible lifestyle.

Bandana you should write the book I’d buy it. If nothing else it could educate some of these modern people how to raise hell.
April 22, 2010 @ 2:37 pm
Oh god I just watched that interview. Ewwww, I’m surprised he found anybody to marry him! I am slowly learning it is best to not delve in the lives of people whose music I admire, and not meet them either, that surely always disappoints! Except Justin Townes Earle, he was very charming and southern. And tall.

Oh come on Carla, that was back in the day. I’m sure he’s a sweet beau these days. 🙂
April 22, 2010 @ 7:55 pm
A sweet beau? So you are trying to tell me men IMPROVE with age? Hahahaha! God, never knew you were such a comedian Trigger. Oh well, clearly the ladies love him so good luck to him and his 6th wife. And the 7th!
April 22, 2010 @ 8:00 pm
PS Bandana should DEFINITELY write that book! I even have a title for it in light of that tasteful *cough* story detailed above: Hillbilly Bone.
April 23, 2010 @ 8:11 am
Well I guess heterosexual marriages do beat same sex marriages in one category: Failure rate, i.e. D-I-V-O-R-C-E
April 23, 2010 @ 9:50 am
all the best to the happy couple.
April 24, 2010 @ 6:15 am
THATS A GOOD ONE..I GUARANTEE MY HILLBILLY BONE WOULD BE BETTER THAN THE ONE SANG AT THE ACM AWARDS..LOL..MEN DO GET BETTER WITH AGE..IT DON’T GET AS HARD SO WE TURN INTO LESBIANS..WE DON’T HEAR AS GOOD SO WE GOT AN EXCUSE FOR WHY WE DON’T DO WHAT Y’ALL SAY..WE CAN ALSO QUIT DOING WHAT MOST MEN DO..
DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU TELL A WOMAN WITH 2 BLACK EYES?
NOTHIN’ YOU DONE TOLD HER TWICE..
I KNOW THIS IS NOT REALLY FUNNY FOR REAL BUT ITS A DAMN GOOD JOKE..I’VE NEVER HIT A WOMAN IN MY LIFE..NEVER HAD THE TIME..I WAS TO BUSY HITTING MEN..
April 25, 2010 @ 9:38 am
MR. BANDANA, I WOULD BE LOOKING FORWARD TO A BOOK LIKE THAT!
I HOPE YOU’RE REALLY GONNA DO IT.
AND CONGRATS TO MR. DAVID ALLAN COE AND MRS.

I think one of his wives was Melanie from New Orleans. Maybe number 2.

He was married to someone named Jodie. (his song…Jodie like a melody) This was around 1985 when he lived in Eldon, Mo.
May 26, 2017 @ 8:09 am
My husband worked for DAC back then. Yes her name was Jodie and it was in Eldon, Mo, he would drive her around, help with the kid or kids, and run the souvenir shop Coe had there. He was a roadie for Coe but Coe got mad at him and sent him off the road. He always said Jodie was the nicest girl.
August 20, 2016 @ 11:23 am
Interestingly it was my father who performed the marriage ceremony in Eldon. He was strict about not marrying anyone who had been divorced. Lol

No Jody like a Melody was written for Willie Nelson’s secretary.
February 20, 2017 @ 10:28 am
Jody was Jody Lynn Benham and she gave birth to 4 of DAC’s kids–Tyler, Tanya, Shyanne and Carson. I worked for DAC for almost 20 years and personally witnessed most of his marriages. There were many “wives” but only 5 counting Kimberly that were legally married —the most he had at one time was 4 and that didn’t work out for very long. I have long considered writing a book myself and may still do it someday
