Jethro Burns

Description
Jethro Burns (1920-1989) was half of the Grammy-winning country comedy duo, Homer and Jethro, which performed from 1936 to 1971. Such hits as "I've Got Tears in My Ears from Lying on My Back in Bed While I Cry Over You," reveal his sense of humor more than his exceptional and influential mandolin playing.
