Bellamy Brothers Score International Success With New Album
It might have been a while since you've seen a new Bellamy Brothers album at the top of the charts -- but that's only if you don't live in Switzerland.
The duo's new album, 'Bellamy Brothers & Friends: Across the Sea,' is a runaway success overseas, landing at No. 5 in the Swiss Music Chart this week. Additionally, the album has taken the top spot in album sales four weeks in a row in Switzerland.
The project consists of collaborations with established American and Swiss artists, including Kris Kristofferson, Crystal Gayle, the Bacon Brothers, Carlene Carter, Jesse and Noah Bellamy, Kristin Ash, Gölä, Natacha, Florian Ast, Yodel Volksmusik Group's Oesch’s die Dritten, Phil Carmen, Peter Reber, and Nina.
“We’re extremely grateful to all the artists who took part in this album," David and Howard Bellamy said in a press release. “It is a unique Swiss/American collaboration and an international music experience that we’re very proud of.”
The pair rocketed to crossover stardom with the release of their first single, 'Let Your Love Flow,' in 1976. They scored a long string of additional hits in the '80s, including 'If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me,' 'Do You Love as Good as You Look' and 'Crazy From the Heart.'
'Bellamy Brothers & Friends: Across the Sea' is currently available in America via iTunes.
