    R.I.P Jerry Reed

    Singer-actor Jerry Reed dies at age 71
    Country star gained widespread fame for ‘Smokey and the Bandit’ role

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Jerry Reed, a singer who became a good ol’ boy actor in car chase movies like “Smokey and the Bandit,” has died of complications from emphysema at 71.

    His longtime booking agent, Carrie Moore-Reed, no relation to the star, said Reed died early Monday.

    “He’s one of the greatest entertainers in the world. That’s the way I feel about him,” Moore-Reed said.

    Awesome guitar player, one of my favorites.

    R.I.P Jerry... you're going to be truly missed.



    another great one with Chet Atkins

    He could really make those strings sing.

    then life is just a one-night stand.
    If there's a rock-n-roll Heaven,
    well you know they've got a hell of a band..."


    RIP, Jerry.
