Biografia

Foley was born Michael David Fuller in Malvern, Arkansas, but grew up in Texas. He performed in a gospel band called The Fuller Family with his mother and sisters. After leaving home, he performed in Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, and finally Austin, Texas. He was close friends with Townes Van Zandt.
His song “If I Could Only Fly” became a hit in the interpretation of Merle Haggard. His song “Election Day” was covered by Lyle Lovett on his 2003 album “My Baby Don’t Tolerate” and his song “Clay Pigeons” was covered by John Prine on his Grammy Award winning 2005 album “Fair and Square.” Joe Nichols pays tribute to “If I Could Only Fly” by recording it for his album “Real Things” released in 2007.
In 1989, Foley was shot in the chest and killed by Carey January, the son of Foley’s friend Concho January. Carey January was acquitted of murder in the first degree by reason of self-defense. He and his father presented completely different versions of the shooting at trial.[1]
Foley jokingly claimed to be the illegitimate son of Red Foley and Blaze Starr.
Foley placed duct tape on the tips of his cowboy boots to mock the “Urban Cowboy” crazed folks with their silver tipped cowboy boots. He later made a suit out of duct tape that he used to walk around in. At his funeral, his casket was coated with duct tape by his friends. Townes Van Zandt was quoted as saying that he’d “have to dig Foley up to get the pawn ticket for his guitar that was in his pocket”.
