The Moron Brothers

Mike Carr and Mike Hammond, otherwise known as Lardo and Burley Moron, respectively, are writers of hilarious songs and performers of musical antics. The two men are favorites at bluegrass festivals and special events of every description—wherever people enjoy good music and down-home comedy. Their performances feature many original songs, distinguished by funny lyrics and toe-tapping tunes.

A career highlight was an appearance on the Grand Ole Opry, where they performed one of their own songs, “If My Nose Was Running Money, I’d Blow It All on You.”

The two Morons share a philosophy about their careers: “We feel like there is enough sickness, sadness, and sorrow in the world, and the Good Lord means for His people to have good, clean fun and laugh,” says Lardo. “Maybe that’s why he gave us the talent to play and write these funny songs.”
