Today Howard Bellamy turns 71 years old. He and his brother David have performed as the Bellamy Brothers for decades now. I have always professed that they are my favorite duo of all time, yes even more so than Brooks and Dunn.

The Bellamys have been part of my music landscape since the early 1970’s and continue to be today. They have consistently released great music even over the last few years, including the hilarious “Boobs” just a couple of years ago. Happy birthday Howard and thank you for all the amazing music you have filled my stereo with through the decades.

Here are a couple from the brothers to celebrate the day.
