Maxine Brown (born Maxine Ella Brown on April 27, 1932 in Kingstree, South Carolina) is an American country music singer, who was originally a member of the successful singing group, The Browns.
While still a toddler, her family moved to a farm near Sparkman, Arkansas. Encouraged by her parents, she began singing and performing at local venues. As a singing duet with her younger brother Jim Ed Brown (born James Edward Brown on 1 April 1934), she signed a record contract in 1954. Baby sister Bonnie Brown joined them in 1955, and the trio went on to become a highly successful, and respected group, and members of the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee until finally disbanding in 1967. She published her autobiography, "Looking Back to See", in 2005.
