Hello fans,

Today we're catching up with Jerry Reed. You probably remember
him for his role in the 'Smokey & The Bandit' films. 

For me, one of my all time favorite songs is sung by Jerry.
It's Amos Moses. And we have a treat for you included in 
today's issue... you can see a video of Jerry performing the
song and see a remake by Primus. 

Let's get to the issue.

Be Well,
Anisa

                       JERRY REED

BIRTH DATE: March 20, 1937, Atlanta, Georgia


BIRTH NAME: Jerry Reed Hubbard 


CLAIM TO FAME:  Jerry is well known by music fans for his C & W 
hits including "She Got The Goldmine (I Got The Shaft)", "Lord, 
Mr. Ford", "When You're Hot, You're Hot" and "East Bound and 
Down". After striking up a friendship with Burt Reynolds Reed 
was cast in small role's in 'W.W. and the Dixie Dancekings, and 
'Gator'. He had a natural on screen charm, and Reynolds picked 
him to play trucker "Cledus Snow" in the hugely popular 'Smokey 
and the Bandit', plus he returned to the role in 'Smokey and the 
Bandit II & III'.


FAMILY LIFE: Priscilla Mitchell (1959 - present) 2 daughters
Lottie and Seidina.


INFO: After a two-year stint in the military, Reed moved to 
Nashville in 1961 to continue his songwriting career, which had 
continued to gather steam while 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."

TRIVIA: Reed's parents separated four months after his birth, and 
he and his sister spent seven years in foster homes or orphanages. 
Reed was reunited with his mother and stepfather in 1944.

In the fade-out of both "When You're Hot, You're Hot" and "She Got 
the Gold Mine (I Got the Shaft)," Reed can be heard complaining, 
"Contempt of court?"

His hit, "The Bird," includes impressions of Willie Nelson's 
"Whiskey River" and "On the Road Again"; and George Jones' "He 
Stopped Loving Her Today."

In the mid-to-late 1970s he was set to play the starring role as 
the legendary guitar player Hank Garland in a film titled Sugar-
foot Rag. The film was about the amazing life and career of the 
top Nashville guitar player, Hank Garland, and was to deal with 
the mysterious circumstances behind his career ending automobile 
accident. Unfortunately the film project fell apart.

During the 1970 television season, he was a regular on the 'Glen 
Campbell Goodtime Hour'. 

Jerry has appeared as a guest on the fishing television series 
Bill Dance Outdoors. In one memorable appearance, Reed caught 
a particularly big largemouth bass and planned to have it 
preserved and mounted by a taxidermist. Dance objected to this 
plan, and freed the fish when Jerry wasn't looking. Reed became 
enraged when he discovered what had happened, and chased Dance 
off the boat and to shore. This incident was also mentioned in 
one of Jeff Foxworthy's standup comedy routines.


WHERE IS HE NOW:
Jerry has stopped making movies to focus on his music career and 
has released several albums.

In October 2004, "Amos Moses" was featured on the 'Grand Theft 
Auto: San Andreas' soundtrack, playing on fictional radio station 
K-ROSE. His latest recording was released in 2006, named Let's 
Git It On. 

In 2007, UK band Alabama 3 (Known as A3) covered his hit "Amos 
Moses" on their album M.O.R.
