Jerry Reed isn't a name that you'd normally associate with rockabilly. Plenty of country artists had rockabilly phases early in their career, and he did do "Amos Moses," a great swamp rock song with some fine chicken pickin'. But he followed that up with roles in crappy movie after crappy movie, including co-starring roles in not one, but three, count 'em three, Smokey and the Bandit movies. Yee gawd. That may be the reason it never occurred to me to look at his early career. But rock he did, at least on one record.
