Jay Huguely (born September 21, 1940; died December 13, 2008 in Valencia, California) was a stage actor, advertising executive and television writer/executive who enjoyed a brief run of popularity as a novelty recording artist in the 1970s.
Recording as Cledus Maggard & the Citizen's Band, Huguely - working at the time for Leslie Advertising in Greenville, South Carolina - enjoyed his one and only hit in 1976 with "The White Knight." Released during the wave of popularity of the citizens' band radio, the song is about a semitrailer truck driver victimized by a Georgia highway patrolman's speed trap.
"The White Knight" reached No. 1 on the Billboard magazine Hot Country Singles chart in February 1976, and was his only hit to reach that chart's Top 40.
