Hello again, fellow music nerds! The artist o’ the week this time around is BR5-49.
Founded in 1993, BR5-49 got their name from the 70s country TV staple, “Hee Haw”. (It was the phone number of Junior Samples’ used car dealer character.) They’re currently on hiatus, but between 1996 and 2006, recorded six albums of retro-country-rockabilly.
Here they are, with “Me ‘N Opie Down By The Duck Pond”:
And here’s “Out Of Habit”:
There one and only minor hit, “Cherokee Boogie” came from their 1996 debut album. Just incase you missed it, here it is:
BR5-49 is a fun and largely forgotten group. I hope they get back together and crank out another album in the near future.
See ya next week! – Bobbo 🙂
