Confederate Railroad at the Clayton Center
January 14 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Confederate Railroad will perform Saturday, Jan. 14 at 7 p.m. at The Clayton Center. They first rolled onto the national country music scene in the early 90s with its unique style and sound. Headed by founder and frontman Danny Shirley, the former backup band for both David Allan Coe and Johnny Paycheck got their big break by signing with Atlantic Records. The first single from their debut album, “She Took It Like A Man,” went to No. 26, and the next two singles, “Jesus and Mama” and “Queen of Memphis” went to the top of the charts. Three more huge hits followed, including “Trashy Women,” which led to a Grammy nomination and became their signature song. Their second album, “Notorious,” produced one of the group’s most popular songs – “Daddy Never Was the Cadillac Kind,” and helped to establish the band as one of the most versatile acts in the business. This album would sell more than 1 million copies. Overall, the Railroad would chart 18 hits and 5 million albums sold.
