JERRY FOSTER - Nashville Songwriter Hall of Fame
Jerry Foster is perhaps best known as one half of the songwriting team of Foster & Rice. The most awarded songwriting team in the history of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers ( ASCAP). Jerry and his writing partner, Bill Rice, along with Buddy Holly, Buddy Russell and Richard Leigh, were inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Association International Hall of Fame in 1994. In 2007, Foster was inducted into the North American Country Music Association Hall of Fame, but his musical career began years before the Hall of Fame inductions. 

While still serving his country in the United States Marine Corps, Jerry began his television career through a thirty minute country music show on WSAV-TV, in Savannah, GA. Upon his honorable discharge from the Marines, he began his recording career with the Houston, Texas based, Backbeat Record company. Moving back to his home state of Missouri, he made his early base of operations and pursued not only a recording career, but a career in radio and television. During this time Jerry met his writing partner, Bill Rice, while both were feature performers at a theater in Poplar Bluff, Missouri. This began a songwriting partnership that lasted for eighteen years and landed them a NSAI Hall of Fame induction.

Foster continued his career in television with his own thirty minutes country music show on KFVS-TV in Cape Girardeau, MO. His show garnered a #1 rating for his time slot. The team of Foster and Rice were signed to a publishing contract by Jack Clement and Bill Hall. Shortly thereafter they moved to Nashville, TN, where they became known as "The Song Factory", for their incredible string of hits. During this time Jerry recorded for a number of Record companies which include: Mercury, Metromedia, Sun, Motown's Hitsville label, Monument and Cinnamon. Foster recorded an album which featured the surviving members of the original Elvis Presley band, as well as the original 1958 members of The Jordanaires. A single from the album became a #1 record in Europe. As a result of popularity to the record, Jerry toured the European Continent with Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, Marty Robbins, Don Williams, Kris Kristofferson, Jeannie C. Riley and others. 

Jerry has been featured in a number of Country Music videos, including the Grammy nominated video, "Moments", starring Emerson Drive, a speaking role in the "Temporary Home" video with Carrie Underwood, and as the preacher who baptized Stephen Baldwin in the Trace Adkins video "Muddy Water". Foster also appeared in fifteen feature films as well as numerous guest appearances on major television shows.
