Jerry and Annette also live in Southern California; and for years, Cliffie has had his recording sessions at their state-of-the-art “Footprint Sound Studio.” Jerry and Cliffie also served together for a number of years on the Academy of Country Music’s ‘Board of Directors.’ Right Photo (May mid-1990s): L to R: Joan Carol Stone, Annette Fuller and ACM award-winning keyboardist, John Hobbs, at a surprise birthday party they had for John after one of Cliffie’s recording sessions at “Footprint Sound Studio.” (Before John permanently moved to Nashville, John, Jerry and Annette were longtime music business associates and very good friends; they still continue to work on projects together from time to time.)  Jerry Fuller is an extremely talented musician, singer, songwriter and record producer. He has written and produced countless hits with a variety of artists which include Andy Williams, Johnny Mathis, Glen Campbell, (‘I Love How You Love Me’); Roger Miller (‘Loving Her Was Easier’); Al Wilson (‘Show and Tell’); Ricky Nelson (‘Travelin’ Man’) and Gary Puckett & the Union Gap. He wrote and produced three of Gary Puckett & the Union Gap’s hits – (‘Young Girl,’ ‘Lady Willpower,’ and ‘Over You’). In 1961, Jerry wrote ‘Travelin’ Man,’ which was recorded by teenage heartthrob, Ricky Nelson, and it sold 6 million copies worldwide! This was the beginning of his musical relationship with Ricky; he wrote 23 of Ricky’s recorded songs, which include ‘A Wonder Like You,’ ‘Young World,’ ‘It’s Up To You,’ which made Billboard’s Top 10. Jerry also discovered future country superstar, Collin Raye, in Reno, NV. He promoted Collin and got him a record deal with Epic in Nashville. Jerry and his talented keyboardist/arranger friend, John Hobbs, (above right photo) co-produced Collin’s debut Album for Epic, ‘All I Can Be.’ From that album, Collin Raye had a #1 hit, ‘Love Me,’ which was nominated for ‘Single of the Year’ by both the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association. Jerry Fuller has had 28 gold/platinum records, over 40 Top Ten hits and more than 250 nationally charted records. He’s received 12 BMI Achievement Awards and 5 BMI ‘Million-Air Awards.’
