One of my favorites. Most are good stories.

Reed was a very talented musician.. I loved his guitar picking... Elvis loved it as well, he insisted that Jerry Reed picked the guitar on a song that he did of Jerry's, called Guitar man.. Listen to some of Jerry's best picking on this song.

Jerry Reed was AWSOME. From what I remember hearing on XM, he also remained active in his local music scene, and playing with local bands in bars and such right up until he died. If you like Jerry Reed, check out Bobby Bare Sr. He was good friends with Shel Silverstein ( the childrens book author) who wrote many of his songs. Very good stories, and just as funny. Shel Silverstein is also a member of the country music hall of fame.

During the closing credits of Stroker Ace they play outtakes - one is when Burt Reynolds is dressed like the chicken and Jerry Reed comes walking in and makes a comment about how he looks and Burt chases him across the stage.

His greatest hits album is a must have - ever road trip needs some "West bound and down".
