Heaven bound and down - "Snowman" Jerry Reed dies

"Yo Jesus, you gotcher ears on, good buddy?" Cletus Snow has made his last crackly Tx on the CB. We know Jerry Reed best as The Bandit's Coors-hauling cohort, but Jerry Reed had a long and successful career that saw him rubbing elbows with greats such as Chet Atkins, Elvis Presley, Waylon Jennings, even Dexy's Midnight Runners (the great part might be debatable on that last one.)

The star of music, film, and television passed away in Nash-Vegas on August 31st of emphysema-related complications. Tonight, we're going to break out the LPs, crack a Banquet Beer and watch all three Bandits as we lament another gone too soon. Thanks for the tip, Kyle.
