Jerry Clower was known as one of the country's top comedian, but he also wrote a number of books. He is not only known for his comedy, but also for his religious influence. He was born in Liberty, Mississippi, and grew up in Amite County among family and friends who became the source of his funny routines. After he graduated from high school in l944, he joined the navy.

Jerry majored in agriculture at Mississippi State and received a job with Mississippi Chemical Company where he became the Director of Field Services for his company. While working, he gained popularity when his coworkers heard his Coon Hunt Story and other comedy routines. One of his close friends suggested that Clower record an album with some of his routines. Jerry liked the idea and recorded an album under the Lemon label.
His first album was named Jerry Clower from Yazoo City Talkin', and it sold over 8,000 copies without being advertised. He received a contract with MCA in l97l, which sent his album to the billboard charts. Soon after, he recorded a second album, From the Mouth of Mississippi. His third album was called Clower Power, and his fourth was Live in Picayune. As a result of these albums, he earned the title of Country Music's funniest man.

Clower wrote several books. Let the Hammer Down is a collection of humorous events and funny anecdotes. Other books he wrote include Ain't God Good!, Life Everlaughter, and Stories from Home. He made more than thirty-two recordings and several videos. He was a member of the Grand Ole Opry until he died. In conclusion, Jerry Clower led a successful life as both a businessman and comedian.
