Country music veterans Bellamy Brothers have recorded their own version of "Lord I Hope This Day is Good." The song is taken from their first-ever, covers-only album, Covers From The Brothers, is available now.
"Lord I Hope This Day is Good" was written by Dave Hanner, and recorded by country music artist Don Williams. It was released in November 1981 as the third single from the album Especially for You. The song was Williams' twelfth number one on the country chart. The single stayed at number one for one week and spent a total of twenty weeks on the country music charts. The song has been subsequently recorded by the Booth Brothers, Lee Ann Womack, Anne Murray, Keb'Mo,' and many others.
Covers From The Brothers also includes the lead single, the Bellamys' cover of Billy Swan's smash-hit "I Can Help" featuring Dennis Quaid. The Bellamy Brothers also filmed a video during their recording session with Quaid where they "got to witness a transformation that crossed a veteran actors' creative process with his lifelong love of music.
The Bellamy Brothers were inspired to record an entire album of covers after a label in Switzerland asked them to cut a couple of covers for a duets project. Produced by the Bellamy Brothers and Randy Hiebert, the 12-song collection also includes the talents of Paul Franklin from Vince Gill's band and Jenee Fleenor from Blake Shelton's band. Covers From The Brothers follows the Bellamys' 2020 Bucket List EP that included their collaboration with John Anderson, "No Country Music For Old Men," which has amassed over 3 million views.
When the stay-at-home orders took effect in March of 2020, the Bellamy Brothers were on Blake Shelton's Friends And Heroes Tour. They returned to their Florida homestead where their hit reality series, "Honky Tonk Ranch," is filmed and stayed busy through a partnership with the Florida-based medical marijuana company Trulieve on their Old Hippie Stash flower product line. The Bellamys recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of that partnership and are back on the road performing to fans across the country and gearing up for their 2022 European tour.
