Jerry Reed

The Guitar Man is gone

Jerry Reed, one of my favorite voices from my childhood, passed away yesterday at the age of 71.  Probably just a month ago, I got a cd of his greatest hits and the husband asked if he was still living and I said yes.  My kids all know who he is; “Smokey and the Bandit” is available on DVD y’all.  He was such a good songwriter and guitar player.  He released his latest album, a live one, in 2005.

Rest easy, Jerry.  You  and Chet can get back to pickin’ together.
