Interesting Facts

#Fact
1Has said he has stopped making movies to focus on his music career and has released several albums. [August 2006]
2The Country Music Association named Reed musician of the year in 1970 and 1971.
3The son of cotton mill workers, he began playing the guitar in elementary school, later graduating to nightclubs and bars in and around the Atlanta area while in his teens. He dropped out of high school to tour with country legends Ernest Tubb and Faron Young, and at age 17 signed his first recording contract with Capitol Records.
4Usually the good 'ol boy type, he played heavies twice in films. He was a sleazy, ornery moonshiner in actor/director 'Burt Reynolds'' film Gator (1976) and a hateful coach in Adam Sandler's The Waterboy (1998).
5Friend Burt Reynolds gave Jerry Reed a bright shiny black 1977 Pontiac Trans Am Limited Edition model, just like the one(s) that were used in the theatrical Smokey and the Bandit movies.
6Won two Grammys in the early 1970s. One was for his hit single "When You're Hot You're Hot" (1971) and the other he shared with Chet Atkins for their collaboration "Me and Jerry" (1970). A third Grammy came in 1992 for his album "Sneakin' Around" with Atkins. His song "Amos Moses" earned him a 1971 Grammy nomination for "best male country vocal performance".
7Elvis Presley recorded two of Reed's early songs -- "U.S. Male" and "Guitar Man" with Jerry playing his distinctive "claw-style" licks on the studio recordings. Jerry later was dubbed "The Guitar Man".
8A popular session and tour guitarist who played with the likes of Chet Atkins, Joan Baez and Ringo Starr.
9Released more than 40 albums over a long career that started with his first record at the age of 18.

13Had quadruple heart bypass surgery in June, 1999.
14Covered the song "Sugarfoot Rag" by Hank Garland, for his album " Texas Bound and Flyin'" (1980)
15In the mid-to-late 1970s, he was set to play the starring role as the legendary guitar player Hank Garland in a film titled Sugarfoot Rag (1970). 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 for unknown reasons.
16His hit, "The Bird," includes impressions of Willie Nelson's "Whiskey River" and "On the Road Again"; and George Jones' "He Stopped Loving Her Today."
17In 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?"
18Best known for his comedy hits, including the Billboard magazine country No. 1 hits "When You're Hot, You're Hot" (1971), "Lord, Mr. Ford" (1973) and "She Got the Gold Mine (I Got the Shaft)" (1982); and the No. 2 hit "The Bird." Also had a No. 2 country hit with "East Bound and Down" (1977).
