Biography

In the tradition of Bands such as The Traveling Wilburys, Run C&W was a Band which had consisted of four key Musicians who pretended to be a Bluegrass Band who had no knowledge of modern day life and therefore would perform 1960’s Soul Hits as if they were traditionally accurate Tunes in the Bluegrass or Country & Western Genres. One prime example is when you hear a herd of Cows in Ray Charles’ “What’d I Say” with the Soul Brothers being replaced by Country & Western Singers instead for the Song: “Sweet Soul Music.” Run C&W were as followed:

EX-Amazing Rhythm Aces Leader Russell Smith (Rug Burns), ex-Eagles and Flying Burrito Brothers guitarist Bernie Leadon (Crashen Burns), Vince Melamed (Wash Burns) and Jim Photoglo (Side Burns), collectively known as the Burns Brothers. The Background Vocals and Lyrics were hilarious too.

Their follow-up Album, dispensing with the dialogue from the previous set, added guest appearances from George Jones (Possum Burns) and Vince Gill (Sun Burns) on Joe Tex’s ‘Hold What You Got’. It was unquestionably obvious that the Band would split, with Russell Smith going on to reunite with the Amazing Rhythm Aces. Their two albums of Rhythm and Bluegrass still deserve to say in catalog to this very day.
