Elsie Jo Miller and Midred Wages were actually sisters-in-law; Elsie married Mildred's brother, guitarist Roy Miller, and the three of them worked briefly as the Miller Trio before auditioning for Sun Records in 1954. Producer Sam Phillips believed that the Millers' vocal harmonies, complimented by the steel guitar solos of Stan Kesler and the percussive electric guitar of Quinton Claunch, would translate into significant record sales. However, the group did not score a hit. After Phillips decided not to release their 1957 recording of the R&B song "Got You on My Mind," the Sisters split up and Elsie Jo became an active participant in the Pentecostal Church.
