Friday July 13th - Homesteader Hall, Huntley, MT.    Gates open at 5:30pm.

The Huntley Project Lions Club has announced this years entertainment at Homesteader Days. Get ready and get your dancin boots on!! The Bellamy Brothers will be performing the lead act with live country music to start the weekend festivities.  This Duo, featuring David and Homer Bellamy have charted some 20 no. 1 hits and more than 50 albums since 1975.  Along with some of their famous songs like Let Your Love Flow, Old Hippie, and Redneck Girl; country music charts throughout the country have had Bellamy Brothers at the top.   

For more than 30 years, the Bellamy Brothers have been an unassuming picture of consistency in Country music, crafting honest, heartfelt  songs   that connect with millions of listeners around the world.  Even more   remarkable is the fact that they’ve  remained relevant in a genre that   has become increasingly enamored with style  over substance, glitz over   grit, and fleeting celebrity over artistic  vision.   Yet Howard and   David Bellamy  have weathered the trends admirably, enjoying enormous   success throughout their  career with numerous No. 1 hits on both the Pop and Country charts.

Totaling more than a dozen chart-topping singles in the U.S.  and   Europe.  “If I  Said You Had A Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against   Me),” “Sugar Daddy,”  “Dancin’ Cowboys,” “Do You Love As Good As You   Look,” “Redneck Girl,” “When I’m  Away From You,” “I Need More Of You,”   “Old Hippie,” “Kids of the Baby Boom,”  “Too Much Is Not Enough,” “Crazy   From the Heart,” “Santa Fe” and “I Could Be  Persuaded” are just some   of the Bellamys’ Top Ten hits that populated the  Pop/Rock and Country   charts from the ‘70s into the ‘90s.

About the Bellamy Brothers:

For more than 30 years, the Bellamy Brothers have been in the country music genre since the 1970′s.
Howard and David Bellamy were influenced early in their career   while touring  with R&B acts like Percy Sledge, Eddie Floyd and   Little Anthony & the  Imperials.  Later, the duo benefited from    time spent around the blossoming Country/Rock scene in Atlanta,   Ga.     After moving to the West Coast in the early ‘70s, however, the Brothers    developed their own sound and scored perhaps the biggest hit of their   career in  1976 with “Let Your Love Flow.”  The song  was a smash in   both the U.S.  and Europe, shooting to the top of the Pop charts and    helping establish an international fan base that still eagerly awaits   the  Bellamys’ annual pilgrimage overseas.
The Brothers continued   to produce No.1 hit after No. 1 hit in the years that  followed,   totaling more than a dozen chart-topping singles in the U.S.  and   Europe.  “If I  Said You Had A Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against   Me),” “Sugar Daddy,”  “Dancin’ Cowboys,” “Do You Love As Good As You   Look,” “Redneck Girl,” “When I’m  Away From You,” “I Need More Of You,”   “Old Hippie,” “Kids of the Baby Boom,”  “Too Much Is Not Enough,” “Crazy   From the Heart,” “Santa Fe” and “I Could Be  Persuaded” are just some   of the Bellamys’ Top Ten hits that populated the  Pop/Rock and Country   charts from the ‘70s into the ‘90s.
As the last decade of the millennium gathered steam, so did the   Brothers’  creativity.  They started their own label  (Bellamy Brothers   Records) in 1992, producing six independent albums in the  ‘90s and   several more for exclusive release in Europe on  Jupiter Records.  It   was also a period  that prepared the Bellamys for a record number of   nominations (since 2000) at  the CMA and ACM Awards in the Duo category –   another highlight in a career that  has unmistakably influenced many of   today’s most successful duo acts, including  Montgomery Gentry, Big   & Rich and Brooks & Dunn, to name just a few.
Today, the Bellamys’ dedicated domestic and international 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.  It’s a routine that has yet  to   get old for the pair.
“Touring  has always been the lifeblood of   our career,” says David.  “We’re very fortunate in that a lot of our    songs were hits around thtouring for   us continues  to be the most basic, grassroots connection with the   people who like our  music.”

The Bellamy Brothers’ success and longevity in   the Country  and Pop genres is a feat that few acts have duplicated,   though one many have  envied.  What began as an unlikely duo  from   Darby, Florida  has emerged 35 years later as one of the most successful   and respected groups  in Country music history.  And they’re  still going strong!  Visit their website here.
