The Amazing Rhythm Aces came together in Tennessee in 1972, with a sound mixing pop, country and blue-eyed soul.
Their debut album, Stacked Deck (1975), resulted in two crossover country-rock hits, Third Rate Romance and Amazing Grace (Used to Be Her Favorite Song), the group’s lone Top 10 country single.
In 1976 The End Is Not in Sight (The Cowboy Tune) – from the album Too Stuffed to Jump – won a Grammy for Country Vocal Performance by a Group.
Burton left the group after the release of 1977’s Toucan Do It Too and was replaced by Duncan Cameron.
