The Bellamy Brothers, one of the most successful duos in country music history, will perform at Greenville’s Bicentennial Celebration in 2015. Howard and David Bellamy skyrocketed to fame in 1976 when their song “Let Your Love Flow” hit number one on the Billboard pop charts. Influenced by 1960s rhythm and blues as well as the country/rock scene of the early 1970s, the Bellamys developed their own signature sound.
In the 1980s and 1990s, the brothers regularly appeared on the country charts where they notched 10 number one songs. Their hits included “Old Hippie” and “For All The Wrong Reasons”. The Bellamys received numerous award nominations from the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association.
Today, the Bellamys’ dedicated fan base continues to allow the legendary brothers to tour around the globe at their leisure, having performed for fans and military personnel in just about every country imaginable.
David Bellamy summed it up, “Touring has always been the lifeblood of our career. We’ve played shows in roughly 60 different countries.”
On Saturday, September 5, 2015, the Bellamy Brothers will add Greenville to the list of places they’ve performed. The duo will be in concert that night as part of Greenville’s two day celebration of its 200th birthday. More details on the concert and the Bicentennial celebration will be coming. Organizers are hoping to book another headline music act for the other day of the event.
