I'll Miss Jerry Reed

Jerry Reed always delivered a ton a laughs and some awesome guitar work during his extensive music and acting career. I'm really gonna miss him...

Y'Know, I once sang "She Got The Goldmine (I Got The Shaft)" at a karaoke night in a restaurant full of rednecks. I was absolutely horrible, but the crowd loved me and somebody bought me a beer.

Thanks for the good music and memories, Jerry.

On the rock side, Reed also played guitar on the Beau Brummels cult favorite BRADLEY'S BARN. Reed's novelty tunes aren't representative of his talent, his albums have a lot of well-written straight-ahead stuff as well.

Well said!

And I no idea about the Beau Brummels connection, you learn something new everyday when you listen to Casetta!
