    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Jerry Reed, a singer who appeared in the "Smokey and the Bandit" movies, has died of complications from emphysema at age 71, his longtime booking agent said Tuesday.
    Carrie Moore-Reed, who is no relation to the star, said Reed died early Monday morning.
    Reed was a gifted guitarist who later became a songwriter, singer and actor.
    As a singer in the 1970s and early 1980s, he had a string of hits that included "Amos Moses," "When You're Hot, You're Hot," "East Bound and Down," and "The Bird."
    In the mid-1970s, he began acting in movies such as "Smokey and the Bandit" with Burt Reynolds, "Gator" "Hot Stuff" and "High-Ballin'."

    RIP Jerry (Snowman) were a great singer and actor......[angel]
