In 2000 Pantera members Vinnie Paul, Dimebag Darrell and Rex Brown teamed up with notorious country/western outlaw musician David Allan Coe for a project titled Rebel Meets Rebel. Described by Vinny Paul as a "crossover country metal thing", the drummer explained:
"Being from Texas, not only do we have rock roots, but we listen to country and blues. Before our shows, we'd play David Allan Coe's song 'Jack Daniels, If You Please' off of one of his CDs.... He caught wind of it, and we went out to see him when he played Billy Bob's. He was just a super cool dude. It was fun to check him out, and we hooked him up with a couple of our home videos, and he called us back a couple days later and just said, 'Man, these f***ing videos are incredible. I really dig what you guys do.' He knows more about Pantera than I do now."
The fast friendship soon yielded a creative partnership, as Paul explained:
"We started hooking up and jamming and doing some tunes, and they're pretty unique. Some of them are just like an up-tempo thrash metal hoedown with a country and western singer."
