Country sibling duo Jesse & Noah know a thing or two about brotherly chemistry: their father is David Bellamy of Seventies crossover act the Bellamy Brothers. As such, they’re also well-versed in the building blocks of Nashville — lyrics about sadness, loneliness and heartbreak — and they draw upon them in their new single “This Town Was Built on Heartbreak Songs.”
The first release from their upcoming album Southern Usonia, due October 14th, the video for “This Town Was Built on Heartbreak Songs” was filmed at the Nashville Palace honky-tonk. It also features some of country music’s most famous names looking on from the audience as Jesse & Noah perform: Tanya Tucker, TG Sheppard, Ronnie McDowell, Deborah Allen and, of course, their father David and his sibling in the Bellamy Brothers, Howard Bellamy.
Southern Usonia is the follow-up to Jesse & Noah’s 2015 EP of cover songs, Brethren, which featured their take on the Everly Brothers’ “All I Have to Do Is Dream.”
