NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Bellamy Brothers join Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig on the latest episode of “Time Crisis” on Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio station.

2020 marks the 35th anniversary of the release of “Old Hippie” which inspired the branding of the Bellamy Brothers’ new flower product line with Trulieve. Old Hippie Stash is available now with the initial strains, Reggae Cowboy and Big Love, in Trulieve dispensaries across the Bellamys’ home state of Florida.
The Bellamy Brothers recently captivated arena audiences across the country with their hits including “Let Your Love Flow” and “Redneck Girl” on Blake Shelton’s Friends and Heroes 2020 Tour with Lauren Alaina, Trace Adkins and John Anderson.

ABOUT BELLAMY BROTHERS:
David and Howard Bellamy continue to prove the trail they’ve ridden to fame has been as unique as their music itself—music that is now celebrating more than 40 years of success. The road that started on the pop music charts in the ‘70’s, took a winding turn into country music in the ‘80’s, paving the way for duos to come, such as Brooks & Dunn, Montgomery Gentry, Big & Rich and The Judds. “If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me),” originally scrawled on a dinner napkin by David, rocketed them to the top of the country charts the way “Let Your Love Flow,” had done in the pop market just a few years earlier. It proved to be the first of a string of 14 No. 1 singles in the U.S. alone. They’re the only U.S. country music act who’ve toured in India, Sri Lanka, New Caledonia and Qatar. The Bellamy Brothers hold the record in both the Academy of Country Music (ACM) and the Country Music Association Awards (CMA) for the most duo nominations. Numerous Grammy nods have also been directed toward the brothers. The Bellamys are also opening up their lives to television audiences with their reality show, “Bellamy Brothers’ Honky Tonk Ranch.” Each episode of captivates viewers by the unpredictable misadventures the Bellamys face while balancing their globe-trotting touring schedule while running their sprawling family ranch in south Florida. “Bellamy Brothers’ Honky Tonk Ranch” is executive produced by David Bellamy and directed, shot and edited by Derrek Kupish, CEO/founder of dkupish productions. “Honky Tonk Ranch” airs Sundays at 3:00 p.m. EST on the Circle Network.
ABOUT TIME CRISIS WITH EZRA KOENIG:
Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig is one of indie’s most thoughtful frontmen, and on TIME CRISIS, he digs into today’s politics and pop culture headlines. Some episodes are serious (he hits the campaign trail with Bernie Sanders, and teaches a masterclass on sampling) and some aren’t (you’ll hear heated debates about Cheetos, Yeezys, and Seinfeld), but each show gets an eclectic soundtrack that spans Drake, David Bowie, Diplo, and Def Leppard. Regular guests include Jonah Hill, Mike D, Alana Haim, and co-host Jake Longstreth, but you never know who could stop by. What you can be sure of: No topic is too high-or-low-brow for Ezra’s hot take.
