Benefit held in Louisville for country singer David Allan Coe

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB)---Country singer David Allan Coe was in Louisville on Sunday for a benefit concert, that was being put on for him.

A large crowd of people stopped by Heart of Fire Church in Louisville for the event.

More than 60 musicians from across the country performed, including Waylon Jennings grandson, and Confederate Railroad.

The goal was to raise money for Coe's medical bills.

Coe was broadsided by a semi truck in March in Florida, after police say the singer ran a red light.

"I didn't hear anything. I didn't see anything, and the next thing I know there was a nurse telling me I had been in a really bad accident. I found out later that it took them two hours to cut me out of the car. They had to cut the clothes off of me to get me out of the car. Then I had 48 stitches in the side of my head here. A lot of my friends have been there for me. Kid Rock was there for me and Willie Nelson, and a lot of great people," David Allan Coe said in the interview with WDRB.

Coe says he has new band members, and is working on new music.

He says he'll perform a full show next month in Fort Worth, Texas.
