Reed - "The Guitar Man"
Jerry Reed Hubbard (born
March 20, 1937) is a country
music singer, country guitarist, and
songwriter. He has also appeared in over a dozen films. As a singer, he
may be best remembered for his novelty song "When you're Hot,
You're Hot" for which he received the Grammy Award for Best Male
Country Vocal Performance in 1972.
Jerry Reed was born in Atlanta, Georgia, the second
child of Robert and Cynthia Hubbard. Unfortunately, his parents
separated four months after his birth and he and his sister spent seven
years in foster homes or orphanages. Jerry was reunited with his mother
and stepfather in 1944. Music and impromptu performances helped ease the
stressful times the new family was under.
By high school, Jerry was already writing and
singing music and allied himself with Atlanta music publisher Bill
Lowery. In his freshman and sophomore years he took acting roles in
school plays. He played at local clubs and was signed by Capitol Records
to a three-year recording contract in 1955. By 1958, he was signed to
NRC Records, where he also served as a guitarist and background vocalist
in the staff band, working alongside other NRC artists Joe South and Ray
Stevens. Another background vocalist at NRC was his wife Priscilla
Mitchell, who scored a country duet hit with Roy Drusky for Mercury
Records, "Yes, Mr. Peters". Jerry's best-known recordings were
for RCA, including number 1 hits "When You're Hot, You're Hot"
(1971), "Lord, Mr. Ford" (1973), and "She Got The
Goldmine (I Got The Shaft)" (1982). He also received the Grammy
Award for Best Country Instrumental Performance in 1971 and 1993.
Jerry's acting career began in 1975 with his debut
in the film W.W. and the Dixie Dancekings but his most memorable
character is Cledus Snow from the three Smokey and the Bandit
