Default Burning Smell - Pass. Rear Tire locked

OK, so here is the deal;
It has been minus twenty or colder for about ten days.
My ebrake sticks constantly. So I stopped using.
Took truck for oil change and when I picked it up ebrake was on.
Released ebrake went to drive away and rear tire was locked.
I jacked it up where i was and spun tire until it would go forward.
Odd thing was it would turn in reverse the whole time.

So it started turning and I was able to drive home but for the days leading up to this I kept smelling burning that I thought was coming from the rear but coulod find it...

Does this sound like frozen/stuck ebrake or something worse?

i would say it's still not released. sounds like they are still dragging. when my e-brake got stuck, i took a hammer and tapped the back of the drum and it released.

parking brakes on both of my trucks have dragged/got stuck ect. I disconnected it on the automatic transmission truck and rebuilt it on my manual.
