Bellamys to Skip CMAs

The Bellamy Brothers will not attend the CMA Awards on Wednesday (Nov. 5) because David Bellamy will be in the hospital recovering from surgery to pass a kidney stone. Howard Bellamy said, “This is such an important evening in country music. I had to decide what would be the best thing for me to do — go on into Nashville and represent the Bellamy Brothers at the awards ceremony or be at my brother’s side. I’ve made the decision to be a ’brother’ tonight and stay here at the hospital with David. I hope everyone understands.” 11/4/03
