Jim Weatherly (born March 17, 1943, Pontotoc, Mississippi) is an American singer-songwriter. Weatherly played quarterback at the University of Mississippi and was an All-American before choosing songwriting over a football career. Weatherly wrote songs that were performed by Ray Price, Brenda Lee, Lynn Anderson, and Bob Luman, but it is for the songs covered by Gladys Knight & the Pips that he is best known. Knight recorded the Weatherly-penned tunes "Midnight Train to Georgia", "Neither One of Us (Wants to Be the First to Say Goodbye)", and "Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me".[1]

Weatherly, who had previously recorded with RCA Records, was offered a solo recording contract with Buddah Records after the success of "Georgia", and he released a number of albums in the 1970s.
