Barefoot Jerry was an American Southern rock and country rock band from Nashville, Tennessee most active between 1971 and 1977. It consisted of various studio musicians led by Wayne Moss and Mac Gayden.
The band took their name form a store next to Gayden's home in the Smoky Mountains, and Barefoot Jerry was actually an old-style country fiddle player inside the store.
Both Moss and Gayden had been lead guitarists for Area Code 615 best known for the tune "Stone Fox Chase", which was used as the theme for the BBC’s Old Grey Whistle Test. Moss had previously played in many sessions, including Bob Dylan's Blonde on Blonde, and he played the guitar riff on Roy Orbison's Pretty Woman.
Other band members included Terry Dearmore, Kenny Buttrey, Jim Colvard, Dave Doran, Si Edwards, John Harris, Warren Hartman, Russ Hicks, Kenny Malone, Charlie McCoy, and Fred Newell.
Wayne Moss was honoured by his home state of West Virginia, being inducted into the West Virginia Music Hall of Fame in November 2013.
