Jim Ed Brown At Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
Born in Sparkman, Arkansas in April of 1934, Jim Ed Brown has been a successful country artist since the 1950s. He began as a member of the The Browns, a trio consisting of him and his two sisters, Maxine and Bonnie. In 1954, Jim Ed and Maxine were signed to a record contract as a duo. A year later, their younger sister joined them in the band and they began singing on Louisiana Hayride in Shreveport and eventually on KWTO-AM in Springfield, Missouri. In 1963, they joined the list as members of the Grand Ole Opry. Just four short years later, the group disbanded and Jim Ed continued to perform solo.
