NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Jerry Reed, a singer who became a good ol' boy actor in car chase movies like "Smokey and the Bandit," has died of complications from emphysema at 71.

His longtime booking agent, Carrie Moore-Reed, no relation to the star, said Reed died early Monday.

eastbound and down makes a good ringtone... had it for a while now.

that and for some reason, when it rings in public, everyone within earshot tends to smile just a little! I guess some things are just timeless. smile

Remember the movie The Waterboy starring Adam Sandler? Jerry Reed was the nasty coach on the opposing team.

This is sad - wasn't he on the Scooby Doo show back in the 80's? Remember they would have "special" guests like the Globetrotters - and I thought Jerry Reed.

RIP Jerry!

Played his own lead guitar on East Bound, and also did a fair amount of his own truck driving I believe for the movie.

I always kinda thought of him as a goof ball and a less popular singer, maybe because of the Bandit films, but after reading his bio I found out that he is very accomplished. It is unfortunate that he had to pass away before many, like myself, had to learn that about him.

edit: Just had to laugh. I have my iPod playing and the next song up was "East Bound and Down" (on now). What a coincidence.

The boys are thirsty in Atlanta, and there's beer in Texarkana.

he was on an episode of Bill Dance outdoors too, it was a good show. Jerry caught a 9 pounder and put it in the well and later Bill let it go and at the end they showed Jerry pouring sugar in the boat gas tank, or at least close to it, it was a classic. I really liked him.

    •   Well may be instead of buying a few over priced pizza's and eating them while you're sitting on the internet Beoshing about others doing something with their time and money you can get off your atheist ars and go help the folks with a few blanks! Freeking Hypocrite much!

    •   Dave- I'm as disillusioned as you with regards to our two main parties and I've been known to lurk around the edges of the Libertarian camp. What keeps me from coming all the way in is silly stuff like this.   You're as delusional as an altar boy that thinks the priest wants to be his "friend" if you believe churches are going to fix anything. They never have and they never will.    If churches help the poor, why are there so many poor people?   Here are a couple great examples of christians helping poor people- 1- A group from my community just got back from a mission trip to some central american rathole where 27 men that paid over $2000 apiece to go 1500 miles to build what were more or less 3 garages for some poor community. A little time for sightseeing and photo taking and they are back home with tons of pretty pictures proud of themselves for doing gods work. 2- The wife just bought 3 overpriced crappy pizzas from my niece to fund her New Orleans mission trip. A bunch of kids will raise several thousand dollars from suckers like me, take a nice trip somewhere I never went as a kid, see some sights and paint a couple houses.   Meanwhile, we live in a county where real, abject poverty actually exists. Students of mine go to bed hungry, don't have enough blankets in their house and live in homes one wouldn't leave their dog in.
