“Jerry Reed Hubbard (Jerry’s real name) was one of a kind,” Steve remarks. “Before he ever did his first acting role in a movie, he was already a triple threat. He was a brilliant songwriter, consummate singer/entertainer, and of course, a world-class guitarist. Chet Atkins used to say, ‘I don't think he even realizes how great he is.’ The world has lost a tremendous talent; I've lost a great pal, but Heaven has gained one mighty guitar playing angel, that's for sure!” Read 2005 Jerry Reed Interview
