'Third Rate Romance' had almost everything a great country classic needs.

Let's see, drinking? Check. Cheating? Check. A great sing-along chorus line? Check.

From their 1975 album 'Stacked Deck', the Amazing Rhythm Aces had everyone singing 'Third Rate Romance, Low Rent Rrendezvous' for a good year or two.

 

 

But then....well, then what?

The group disbanded after a couple more albums and lead singer Russell Smith became a successful songwriter, one member joined Hank Williams, Jr.'s Bama Band and member Duncan Cameron joined the hugely successful Sawyer Brown.

The band re-grouped in 1997 and today has a couple original members and continues playing shows.
