When Jerry Was Hot He Was Hot

Back in the late sixties and early seventies, there was no hotter singer in country music than Jerry Reed. He was not only a fine and funny songwriter, and really talented singer, but Reed played guitar like nobody's business. He enjoyed one big crossover hit with his song about a Cajun 'gator wrestler, Amos Moses.

He had his biggest hit of all, about a card game he should have stayed out of. "When You're Hot, You're Hot" spent five weeks at Number One on Billboard's Country Music chart back in 1972, and crossed over to Billboard's Hot 100 Pop Music chart, making into the Top Ten at number nine. When You're Hot, You're Hot also was certified gold for sales of over a million dollars. This is the "guitar man", Jerry Reed, and When You're Hot, You're Hot.
