Confederate Railroad first rolled onto the national country music scene in the early 90s with its unique style and sound.
Headed by founder and front man 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 self-titled debut album was "She Took It Like A Man". It went to No. 26, a preview of what was to come. The next two singles, "Jesus and Mama" and "Queen of Memphis" went to the top of the charts. Three more huge hits followed, "Trashy Women", "When You Leave That Way You Can Never Go Back", and "She Never Cried". "Trashy" would lead to a Grammy nomination and become their signature song. That album with six hits and nearly three million sales brought Confederate the Academy of Country Music's Best New Group Award in 1993 as well as numerous nominations from the Country Music Association and the British Country Music Foundation.
The second album, "Notorious", produced one of the group's most popular songs "Daddy Never Was the Cadillac Kind" which became a number one video as well. "Elvis and Andy" and "Summer in Dixie" would further establish Confederate Railroad as one of the most versatile acts in the business. This album would sell more than one million. Their overall totals are 18 charted hits and five million albums sold.
