Bellamy Brothers hit “Let Your Love Flow” heating up charts again, thanks to Barclays Bank

posted by Joanne Brokaw

The crossover hit “Let Your Love Flow” put country music duo Bellamy Brothers on the charts back in 1976, and helped launch a career that’s spanned more than three decades. And the song is heating up the charts again after being used by England’s Barclay Bank for a credit card advertisement. The song is currently #25 on the official UK Singles chart, Music Week, as of November 15th. The Bellamy Brothers first released “Let Your Love Flow” in 1976. The crossover song was written by one Neil Diamond’s former roadies, Larry E. Williams, and the tune reached #1 on the pop charts in the U.S., Great Britain, Scandinavia, and Germany. It was a major hit on the Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart but their first #1 Country hit was in 1979 for the Grammy award-winning song, “If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me). “”We had no idea the song, ‘Let Your Love Flow,’ had been licensed to Barclay for an advertisement,” explains David Bellamy, “but we found out after the single started climbing the charts in England. Any artist is always thrilled when one of your signature songs has longevity like this because it was thirty-two years ago when we first released the tune. We’ve always had such faithful fans in Europe, like we do in the United States, but with the single charting again we’re introducing our music to a whole new generation of music lovers.” The ad is cute, and even though you probably didn’t know who sang it, if you were around in the 70s I guarantee you know the song. Good for the Bellamy Brothers, for finding a new fanbase and for singing music that connects across generations.The Bellamy Brothers recently won Vocal Duo of the Year at the 14th annual Inspirational Country Music Awards. Their latest project, Jesus Is Coming, garnered the duo’s first Dove nominations for Country Album and Country Recorded Song (Drug Problem). Since 1983, the Bellamy Brothers have received 18 nominations for Vocal Duo of the Year from the Country Music Association, along with numerous nominations from the Academy of Country Music Awards.For more about the Bellamy Brothers, visit their website.RELATED POSTS14th Annual Inspirational Country Music Awards winners10 Artists Share Advice From Their Dads
