About Jerry Reed
Remember that catchy hit song from the 1970s, "When You're Hot, You're Hot?" That was Jerry Reed's. His Nashville contemporaries knew him as "The Guitar Man" back in the day -- besides playing a Fender Telecaster like it was nobody's business, he also co-starred with Burt Reynolds in each of the three Smoky and the Bandit films. Reed scored a number two hit with "East Bound and Down" from the soundtrack to that epic triptych's first installment.
