Nashville , TN (November 17, 2008) ---- Country music’s favorite duo, Bellamy Brothers, are heating up the charts again with their mega-hit, “Let Your Love Flow.” The song is being used by England ’s Barclay Bank for a credit card advertisement and as a result the song is now #25 on the official UK Singles chart, Music Week, as of November 15th.
“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 Bellamy Brothers first released “Let Your Love Flow” in 1976 and the crossover song was written by one Neil Diamond’s former roadies, Larry E. Williams.
