NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Season two of the Bellamy Brothers’ hit reality series “Honky Tonk Ranch,” which chronicles their “unusual lives, blending music stardom, vigorous road tours and cattle ranching (Tampa Bay Times),” premieres tonight on Circle at 7:30 p.m. CT. Eddy Raven appears in the first episode of the star-studded season that also features Blake Shelton, John Schneider, Billy Dean and many more of the iconic duo’s legendary friends.

To celebrate the season two launch, the Bellamys recently sat down with Nan Kelley in the Circle Room at the Grand Ole Opry House for an episode of Circle Sessions where they chatted about the upcoming season and performed their classic hits “If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me)” and “Redneck Girl.” The episode debuted on Circle last night and will be live streamed on Saturday, Sept. 19 as the pre-show leading up to the live Grand Ole Opry broadcast.
When the stay at home orders took effect in March, the Bellamy Brothers were on the road with Blake Shelton, John Anderson, Trace Adkins and Lauren Alaina for the Friends and Heroes Tour. The duo returned home to Florida where “Honky Tonk Ranch” is filmed. During this time, the Bellamys stayed busy through their partnership with the Florida-based medical marijuana company, Trulieve, on their flower product line Old Hippie Stash and the release of their new Bucket List EP.
Bucket List, released July 10, includes “No Country Music for Old Men,” a collaboration with longtime friend John Anderson, inspired by the loss of Kenny Rogers earlier this year. The lead single “Rednecks (Lookin’ for Payhecks)” and additional four songs like “Sunshine State of Mind,” which features a kid’s choir, and “Law Low, Stay High” have a more light-hearted feel. Bucket List was recorded and co-produced by the Bellamy Brothers and Randy Hiebert at the studio on their Florida homestead.

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, “Honky Tonk Ranch.” Each episode 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. “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 on Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. CT on Circle.
