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.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
