With gentle pop harmonies with roots in early country, sibling act the Browns (Maxine, Bonnie, and Jim Ed) quickly became a featured act on Red Foley's Ozark Jubilee in 1955. The following year they signed to RCA Records, immediately scoring a number two country hit with their recording of the Louvin Brothers' "I Take the Chance." In 1959, they released the million-selling ballad "The Three Bells," a chart-topper in both pop and country that would be forever linked with the trio. That smash was followed by further hits such as "The Old Lamplighter." The Browns disbanded in 1967; Maxine and Bonnie wished to raise their families, while Jim Ed enjoyed a hugely successful solo career. The Browns reunited in 1996 for the gospel set Family Bible. ~ Rovi Staff
