Biography

San Antonio, Florida, USA (1968 – present)

The Bellamy Brothers started their musical career at the end of the 1960s. In 1968, they had their first official gig, playing a free show with their father at the Rattlesnake Roundup in San Antonio, Florida, USA. They kept playing throughout the South, often with already recognized musicians, such as Percy Sledge, Eddie Floyd and others. A couple of months later, the brothers moved up north, discovering the potentials of rock/country music in Atlanta, Georgia.

During the long road gigs, David Bellamy discovered that he had a talent for songwriting. It was his lyrics that eventually made it possible for the duo to become an international act. This breakout came eventually in form of the hit “Spiders and Snakes,” which sold more than three million units and brought the Bellamy Brothers to L.A. music scene.

The duo was very well-known at the time; however, they were not yet famous internationally. That all changed with the crossover single “Let Your Love Flow” in 1976, the song becoming instant smash worldwide. It remained on charts long enough to build an appreciable international fan base, which exists to this date. For example, in Germany the song stayed a number one hit for two months.

Their music gradually became more and more country-like. By the late ’70s, another hit followed: “If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me)”. Just like “Let Your Love Flow” put them on pop charts a few years earlier, this song did just the same with the country charts.
