Amazing Rhythm Aces is an American country rock group.
The Aces came together in Memphis in 1972, first with bassist Jeff Davis and drummer Butch McDade?, who had recorded and toured with singer/songwriter Jesse Winchester. Davis and McDade? recruited vocalist/guitarist Russell Smith, keyboardist Billy Earhart III, dobro player Barry Burton, and pianist James Hooker to develop a sound mixing pop, country and blue-eyed soul.
Stacked Deck, their debut album, released in 1975 resulted in two crossover (rock and country) 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.
