Greg Guidry (January 23, 1954, St. Louis, Missouri- July 28, 2003, Fairview, TN) was an American singer-songwriter. Guidry played piano and sang gospel as a child, and sang in a band with future Doobie Brother, Michael McDonald as a teenager. He signed a publishing contract with CBS Records in 1977 and wrote songs for Climax Blues Band, Robbie Dupree, Exile, Johnny Taylor, Sawyer Brown, and Reba McEntire. In 1981 he sang backup for the Allman Brothers Band on their 1981 album Brothers of the Road. He signed with Columbia in 1982 and released an album, Over the Line, which produced two hits, "Goin' Down" (US #17, US AC #11) and a duet with his sister Sandy, "Into My Love" (US #92).
While he continued to do songwriting work later in the 1980s, he did not release a follow-up album until 2000, when his Soul'd Out and Private Session were released, and his debut album re-released. On July 28, 2003, Guidry died in a fire at age 49. His charred body was found in his car parked in the garage. His death was ruled a suicide.
