Barefoot Jerry is an American rock band whose style has been described as a fusion of country music and progressive rock, and as a seminal southern rock band. The band was founded in Nashville, Tennessee, most active from 1971 to 1977. It was composed of area studio musicians under the tutelage of Wayne Moss and Mac Gayden. Barefoot Jerry was once a store next to Gayden's home in the Smoky Mountains. Barefoot Jerry was actually an old-style country fiddle player inside the store; Gayden named the group for him.
