Jerry Reed

20 March 1937 to 31 August 2008

A successful songwriter and country music performer, Reed translated the good old boy persona that attended this aspect of his career into a succession of film roles, notably opposite Burt Reynolds. These include WW And The Dixie Dancekings (1975), Gator (1976) plus Smokey And The Bandit (1977) and two sequels.
