Ted Jarrett spent the 1970s through 1990s, running a record label that produced gospel, blues and R&B music.
But Jarrett himself was also a musician and producer known for "You Can Make It If You Try," which was sung by Mick Jagger. He also wrote the Webb Pierce song "Love, Love Love," a hit on the radio during segregation days in the South.
Last Saturday, Jarrett, of Nashville, died at age 83. He was remembered Thursday.
