Biography

Nashville, United States (1971 – 1977)

Barefoot Jerry was a Nashville-based Southern rock and progressive Country band active from 1971-1977. It was composed of area studio musicians under the tutelage of Wayne Moss, lead guitarist of Area Code 615, and other 615 alumni.

Moss had previously played in many sessions, including Bob Dylan’s Blonde on Blonde and plays the iconic guitar riff on Roy Orbison’s Pretty Woman. In addition to Moss, band members included: Terry Dearmore, Kenny Buttrey, Jim Colvard, Dave Doran, Si Edwards, Mac Gayden, John Harris, Warren Hartman, Russ Hicks, Kenny Malone, Charlie McCoy, and Fred Newell.

Barefoot Jerry’s first line up consisted of: Wayne Moss guitar/keyboards/vocals, Mac Gayden - guitar/keyboards/vocals, Kenneth A. Buttrey - drums, and John Harris - keyboards.

Moss, Buttrey and Gayden (who wrote the number one UK hit by The Love Affair, Everlasting Love) had all been in the Grammy award winning Nashville supergroup Area Code 615. They originally played together on many of Monkee Michael Nesmith’s Nashville sessions. They enjoyed the experience so decided to form Area Code 615.

This line up of Barefoot Jerry recorded the superb Southern Delight before Gayden left in 1972 to form his own band - Skyboat; Buttrey joined Neil Young’s band. Wayne Moss and John Harris were soon joined by Russ Hicks - guitar/steel guitar/horn/vocals and Kenny Malone - drums for the equally breathtaking “Barefoot Jerry” released on Warner Brothers in 1972.
