Howard and I are so honored with this recent ICM award and are thrilled with the response from the Christian and Country genres to our latest release.”

Howard and David Bellamy were unable to attend the ICM Awards show because of their heavy tour schedule, which included an appearance at a rally with Vice Presidential nominee, Governor Sarah Palin, in Ohio. The duo sang the national anthem and did a forty-five performance before an estimated crowd of ten-thousand people. They have another Palin rally on the books for Thursday, October 23, in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania at 7:30 pm.
Howard and David Bellamy were raised in Florida and began their musical journey during their childhoods. Without any formal training, they mastered several instruments and in college started playing paid gigs. In 1973, David Bellamy’s song, “Spiders and Snakes,” became a top 5 hit for Jim Stafford and went on to sell three million copies. David and Howard signed with Curb/Warner Bros. in 1975 and became The Bellamy Brothers. Their first hit was “Let Your Love Flow,” followed by the Grammy-winning “If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me), “You Ain’t Just Whistlin’ Dixie,” “Kids of the Baby Boom,” “For All the Wrong Reasons,” and “Old Hippie,” that has a new version on Jesus Is Coming, “Old Hippie III (Saved).” The Bellamy Brothers have garnered more nominations than any other artist in the Duo Category for the Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music Awards. The group also maintains a heavy tour schedule with dates in the states and in Europe.
