Jerry Reed was a legend. He was one of the best country artists of all time. With this, take a little flashback of his success. In 1971, he earned his very first No.1 single on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. He placed “When You’re Hot, You’re Hot” at the No.1 position exactly on June 19, 1971. It was 47 years back then. Indeed, classic yet ageless music from “The Good Ol’ Boy” of Country Music.

The Billboard charts measure the popularity of a given song. It is being calculated weekly by collecting airplay data, with digital sales and streaming. Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems collects all the data. It is being published on the Billboard Magazine.

When You’re Hot, You’re Hot

The song became Jerry Reed’s hallmark single. Since its release, it has opened more opportunities for his career. Besides, it has showered him accolades and recognition. On the other hand, Jerry Reed, himself, wrote the words and lyrics of “When You’re Hot, You’re Hot.” It was released in March 1971 under his album of the same name.

Moreover, more than four decades ago, the song peaked at the No.1 spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart on June 19, 1971. It spent five weeks at a No.1 spot and a total of fifteen weeks on the chart.
