Today's piece of Lost Jewelry from the Vaults at Oldiez 93 for Friday, May 25th, 2018 comes from The Amazing Rhythm Aces!
On July 26th, 1975, "Third Rate Romance" entered Billboard's Top 40 and shmoozed its way up to #14, spending nine weeks in the Top 40, longer than many songs that went to #1.
The Amazing Rhythm Aces, a country-rock band from Knoxville, Tennessee, consisted of Russell Smith, Barry Burton, Billy Earhart, Jeff Davis and Butch McDade.
Unfortunately, "Third Rate Romance" was their one and only Top 40 hit, thus they're relegated tot he status of a One-Hit-Wonder. On the Country chart, they placed three songs between 1975 and 1976.
Butch McDade died of cancer on November 29th, 1998 at the age of 52.
