“When You’re Hot, You’re Hot” Topped Country Music Charts
Atlanta-born Jerry Reid Hubbard had a recording that tops U.S. country music charts today. The song - “When You’re Hot, You’re Hot” - eventually earned this artist accolades as the top country song of 1971. We know Jerry Reed not only for his music but for his co-starring with Burt Reynolds in the “Smokey and the Bandit” movies.
