Watch Ole 'Bandit' Run: Fans Ride To Georgia For Film's 40th

They had a long way to go and a short time to get there, but hundreds of fans in Trans Ams have put the hammer down and made it to Atlanta to celebrate the 40th anniversary of "Smokey and the Bandit." About 350 cars this week retraced actor Burt Reynolds' wild ride from the Texas-Arkansas line to Atlanta in the movie that roared into pop culture in 1977. "Every town we drive through, people come out to film us, take pictures and wave as our convoy of cars comes through - it's like being in a huge parade," said organizer Dave Hall of Lincoln, Nebraska. Truckers and others also took part in "Snowman's Run," a road trip that raises money for wounded veterans in the name of the late actor and musician Jerry Reed, who played the trucker Snowman in the movie. All of them have gathered in Jonesboro, Georgia, the town 15 miles south of Atlanta where much of the movie was filmed.

On Second Thought For Thursday, June 22, 2017

Today, we revisit our conversation with musician Kishi Bashi. He was raised in Virginia, but has lived in Athens since 2011 when he started playing with the band Of Montreal. We spoke to him just before his concert at the Variety Playhouse last fall. He is up for "Best Album of the Year" at the Flagpole Music Awards tonight in Athens. Otis Redding, the Allman Brothers and Little Richard are just a few of the top-notch musicians to get their professional start in Macon, Georgia. But there are many other talented Macon artists who haven't gotten the same recognition. We speak with Jamie Weatherford and Jessica Walden of Rock Candy Tours in Macon, which takes guests to visit some of the historical music sites in that city.
