Musician, Actor, and dare I say, Musical Comedian; Jerry Reed passed away August 31, 2008 at the young age of 71.
If you don’t like country music, Smokey and The Bandit, or good ole boys, you may not care. But if you have a passion for the way some musicians play a guitar, then you might have wanted to thank Jerry. If you have a passion for comedy and storytelling, then you might want to take a lesson from Jerry. Or if you are just getting a little older these days, like myself; then you’ll just be saddened that another legend has passed away.
And yeah, I sang along with this song today, on a radio tribute show to Jerry.
