The Wild Man From Alabam

Guitar Man

Fresh off of a pop country rant about authenticity and honesty in art, it should be pointed out that art and entertainment need not be separate. Who better to illustrate that point then Mr. Jerry Reed. Art and entertainment are only good so far as they measure and reflect truth. Regardless of how fractured the mirror is or if the measuring is done with the metric system somewhere in there must be truth.

When Jerry Reed sings about cars in “Lord, Mr. Ford,” we believe him:

“Well, if you’re one of the millions who own one of them gas drinking, piston clinking,
air polluting, smoke belching, four wheeled buggies from Detroit City, then pay attention; I’m about to sing your song son.”

Happy Birthday Jerry.
