Main Stage Saturday Night | Jason Michael Carroll’ Opening Act & The Bellamy Brothers’ Main Stage Performance
June 25, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm
The Main Act: The Bellamy Brothers
The Bellamy Brothers have been making music for over 40 years and have traveled a unique trail to fame. Starting their career in the late 1960s, Howard and David Bellamy played in black clubs throughout the South and sang backup for artists like Percy Sledge and Eddie Floyd. They then moved to the Atlanta market where they were influenced by the Allman Brothers, eventually breaking into the LA music scene. After Jim Stafford recorded David’s hit song “Spiders & Snakes,” which sold more than three million units worldwide, the Bellamys became a part of the LA music scene, playing alongside legends like Bob Dylan, James Taylor, and Van Morrison.
The Bellamys officially took off when their single “Let Your Love Flow” became an instant smash in the US and Europe in 1976, staying on international charts long enough to build a substantial fan base. Their music style, songwriting, and success moved towards country music in the 80s. The Bellamy Brothers are known for their patented blend of rock and country music, and their style has earned them success. The duo created a new category of “duo” in country music, with The Bellamy Brothers being the most nominated duo in both the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association Awards. They have also been nominated for numerous Grammy awards.
With their success, The Bellamy Brothers have released over two dozen hit songs outside the US that were never released in the US. Their songs have lined the corridors of musical history with platinum and gold. Howard and David’s success is unique in their ability to match their songs to the international market. As their international finesse grew, Howard and David continue to perform and film TV specials in Europe and around the world. Blake Shelton has helped introduce a new generation of country music fans to The Bellamy Brothers’ hits during his annual Friends And Heroes Tour, where they continue to captivate arena audiences around the country. The brothers play over 200 concert dates each year, calling themselves “old road dogs.”
