About The Artist

In April 1956, Jerry Reed, a native of Atlanta, Georgia, was one of Capitol Records' newest artists. He was only 18 then and had been pickin' and singin' sine he was ten years old. His first personal appearance in front of an audience was when he was nine years old.

He was still in high school then and took part in quite a few of the high school plays they wrote. They said he had a flair for the dramatics.

His first television appearance was with Uncle Joe Allison along with Jerry Byrd and the gang at WSIX in Nashville. In early 1956, he was with WLW-TV in Cincinnati each Saturday night.
