Jerry Reed

Known throughout country music as "the Guitar Man," singer/songwriter Jerry Reed gained recognition not only for a successful solo career but also as an actor and ace session player. Jerry Reed Hubbard was born in Atlanta, GA, on March 20, 1937; after picking up the guitar as a child, he was signed by publisher and producer Bill Lowery to cut his first record, "If the Good Lord's Willing and the Creeks Don't Rise," at the age of 18. He continued releasing both country and rockabilly singles to little notice until rocker Gene Vincent covered his "Crazy Legs" in 1958.

After a two-year tenure in the military, Reed moved to Nashville in 1961 to continue his songwriting career, which had continued to gather steam even as he was in the armed forces, thanks to Brenda Lee's 1960 cover of his "That's All You Got to Do." He also became a popular session and tour guitarist. In 1962, he scored some success with the singles "Goodnight Irene" and "Hully Gully Guitar," which found their way to Chet Atkins, who produced Reed's 1965 "If I Don't Live Up to It." In 1967, he notched his first chart hit with "Guitar Man," which Elvis Presley soon covered. After Presley recorded another of Reed's songs, "U.S. Male," the songwriter recorded an Elvis tribute, "Tupelo Mississippi Flash," which proved to be his first Top 20 hit.

After releasing the 1970 crossover hit "Amos Moses," a hybrid of rock, country, and Cajun styles, Reed teamed with Atkins for the duet LP Me and Jerry. During the 1970 television season, he was a regular on The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour, and in 1971 issued his biggest hit, the chart-topper "When You're Hot, You're Hot," which was also the title track of that year's album. A second collaboration with Atkins, Me and Chet, followed in 1972, as did a series of Top 40 singles, which alternated between frenetic, straightforward country offerings and more pop-flavored countrypolitan material. A year later, he scored his second number one, "Lord, Mr. Ford," from the album The Uptown Poker Club.

In the mid-'70s, Reed's recording career began to take a back seat to his acting aspirations, and in 1974, he co-starred with his close friend Burt Reynolds in the film W.W. and the Dixie Dancekings. While he continued to record throughout the decade, his greatest visibility was as a motion picture star, almost always in tandem with headliner Reynolds; after 1976's Gator, Reed appeared in 1978's High Ballin' and 1979's Hot Stuff. He also co-starred in all three of the Smokey and the Bandit films; the first, which premiered in 1977, landed Reed a number two hit with the soundtrack's "East Bound and Down."

In 1979 he released a record comprised of both vocal and instrumental selections titled, appropriately enough, Half & Half. It was followed two years later by Jerry Reed Sings Jim Croce, a tribute to the late singer/songwriter. In 1982 Reed's career as a singles artist was revitalized by the chart-topping novelty hit "She Got the Goldmine (I Got the Shaft)," followed by "The Bird," which peaked at number two. His last chart hit, "I'm a Slave," appeared in 1983. After an unsuccessful 1986 LP, Lookin' at You, Reed focused on touring until 1992, when he and Atkins reunited for the album Sneakin' Around before he again returned to the road. He recorded sparingly during the '90s, earning a higher profile via a film appearance in the Adam Sandler vehicle The Waterboy. Inactive during much of the 2000s, he died in 2008 due to emphysema. ~ Jason Ankeny

It's sad we have lost so many of the old greats. Music like this started so much for others. Now music today is not even close to being a great like the original people who paved the road for them.

It wasn't until the late 1950's and 1960's that the Confederate Battle Flag was used by the KKK and other hate groups. Those that use the flag to honor their ancestors do not promote the hate and stupid ideas that those who abuse it do. There are many blacks who also respect the flag due to the fact that their ancestors served with the Confederate Army.

liboicap, take down the flag? You know the confederate flag had nothing to do with slavery &it is a symbol of our past, of our country?. People are just looking for an excuse to change things.The KKK adopted the flag, but the flag is not for or about the KKK. You gonna ban all white sheets from everyone's households now too? Are you going to ban the American flag too? After all, under many peoples theory, that had a lot to do with wars, slavery, death, stealing of the Indians land!

I may be a pilot, but since my Dad was an independent trucker going back to 1961, I have enormous respect for long haul truckers. Owner/operat o r s are hopefully making a comeback! Goodness, I miss seeing cabovers. Flying freight, we pilots would be unemployed without you guys hauling those long hours and lack of sleep. We can pick up WRVA, in the air at night and I miss " Big John Trimble "!! You guys out there stay safe and know that we appreciate all your help!
