Happy Birthday to Howard Bellamy! Born on February 2, 1946 in Dade City, FL, the elder Bellamy brother has found major musical success along with his brother, David. The Bellamy Brothers first found fame back in the 1970s, starting with their number one hit, “Let Your Love Flow.” The song was a smash on the Pop charts but found more modest success on the Country charts. However, in 1979, the duo gained much more traction in Country Music with their release of “If I Said You Have a Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me)” in 1979. After those two songs, it was hit after hit all around the world with songs like “Redneck Girl,” “Old Hippie,” etc. They’ve had twenty number one hits to be exact.
