As a country musician he had a popular rock/country/cajun crossover with "Amos Moses." The crossover he's most famous for, though, is from country singer to actor in the trio of Smokey And The Bandit films. Musicians had been making movies for generations but few country musicians had managed such a feat. Today, it's standard to see country musicians become actors (Billy Ray Cyrus, Dwight Yoakum), but Reed was one of the first. We're curious how Reed would respond to the Phoenix TA trans-am ripoff, though Maymar has provided a clue.
