‘Early and Often’ produces more than one ear but not at the same time. Without seeing the corn plants  it is tough to say what happened. It may have been weather related, disease or insects.

There are a few of the larger varieties that will produce 3 good ears on one plant, such as Silver Queen. I presume "Early and Often" variety refers to the variable maturation of each individual plant, giving you a harvest that lasts over several weeks if you have many plants. However, once an individual corn plant has produced its ears, it promptly dies. That is the way with all corn varieties. They are annuals after all.
