The Marcy Brothers were an American country music trio formed in Oroville, California in 1988 and disbanded in 1991. The trio consisted of three brothers: Kevin, Kris, and Kendal Marcy. They released two albums for divisions of Warner Music Group and charted six singles on the Billboard country charts. Their highest was "Cotton Pickin' Time" at No. 34.

Music career[edit]

The Marcy Brothers' debut album, Missing You, was released on October 23, 1989 on Warner Bros. Records' Nashville division. It reached a peak of number 75 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. The album saw a total of five single charting, including their highest chart single, "Cotton Pickin' Time", which reached No. 34 on the Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) chart in 1989. Other releases include "The Things I Didn't Say" (#68), "Threads of Gold" (#52), "You're Not Even Crying" (#70), and the title track (#79). Blake Shelton covered "Cotton Pickin' Time" on his 2004 album Blake Shelton's Barn & Grill.

The Marcy Brothers released their second studio album, which was self-titled, on July 9, 1991 on Warner Bros.' sister label, Atlantic Records. This album produced only the No. 71 "She Can" before the trio exited the label and disbanded. Also included on the album was "Don't Tell My Heart", a song which would later become a five-week Number One on the country charts in 1992 when Billy Ray Cyrus recorded it under the title "Achy Breaky Heart". Kendal has since joined Brad Paisley's road band, the Drama Kings, in which he plays the banjo, keyboards, mandolin, and sings background vocals.
