The Bellamy Brothers made a name for themselves in the '70s with a string of number one hits like 'Let Your Love Flow', 'If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body Would you Hold it Against Me', 'Old Hippie', 'Dancing Cowboys', and so many more.  All in all, the Bellamy Brothers had a string of 14 Number One singles in the US.  They found fame abroad as well.

Most recently, the Bellamy Brothers found a place in Blake Shelton's 'Friends and Heroes' Tour, where they performed some of their biggest hits, then sang a couple with Blake Shelton as well.

The Bellamy's are real-life brothers, Howard and David, and began this journey in country music in the 70s but that hasn't slowed them down.  Their most recent project, Bucket List, debuted in 2020 with the single 'Rednecks(Lookin' for Paychecks)', a timely take on the current situation leading off as the first release from this EP.  Also included is a collaboration with John Anderson (Also included on Blake's Tour), 'No Country Music for Old Men', a song that was inspired by the loss of Kenny Rogers, whose memorial service came last week, 2 years after his passing.

Tonight's show at the Historic McMahon Auditorium will begin at 7 pm.  The Box office opens at 5, and there will be food and beverages available with Red Bone Indian Tacos, and Nice Ice Baby. Tickets are available at the McMahon office until 4:30 pm today, then will move to the box office at 5.  You can also purchase them online at Tickets@swokarts.com.

Brought to you in part by the City of Lawton, Hilton Garden Inn, Red Bone Indian Tacos, Oklahoma Arts Council, National Endowment for the Arts, and McMahon Auditorium Authority.
