It was today back in 2008 when Jerry Reed, also known as The Guitar Man, died from complications due to emphasema.  For those of you who are new to country music, Jerry Reed was a singer, guitar player, song writer, and an actor.  You may have seen him in movies like ‘Smokey And The Bandit I, II and III’ ‘Stroker Ace’  and for something a little newer, the Adam Sandler comedy ‘The Waterboy’.

Some of my favorite Jerry Reed songs:

Eastbound And Down

She Got The Goldmine (I Got The Shaft)

Amos Moses

When You’re Hot You’re Hot

And as I mentioned, he was in ‘The Waterboy’ with Adam Sandler and Henry Winkler:

Jerry Reed was 71 at the time of his passing.
