This band just redid the ‘Smokey and The Bandit’ theme song


A major country music act has released a new version of the classic Jerry Reed song “Eastbound and Down.”

On Wednesday night, country music trio Midland paid tribute to the passing of “Smokey and the Bandit” star Burt Reynolds by performing “Eastbound and Down” live at the 52nd annual County Music Awards.

In addition to performing the song, Midland also stopped by the Country Music Hall of Fame to visit the Trans Am used in filming “Smokey and the Bandit II” and shared their admiration for Jerry Reed and the Smokey and The Bandit series.

You can take a listen to the studio version of Midland’s cover of “Eastbound and Down” below.
