In the early '90s, Confederate Railroad, who previously served as backing band for David Allan Coe and Johnny Paycheck, carried the torch of outlaw country (with a touch of Southern rock) into an era defined by slick commercialism. Their rough-hewn sound and bad-boy attitude, typified by hits like “Trashy Women” and “Time Off for Bad Behavior,” were a breath of fresh air when their 1992 self-titled debut arrived. There must have been plenty of people waiting for deliverance from Nashville slickness, as the album notched six hit singles and went multi-platinum.
