Biography

BR549 is an American country music band. The group was formed in Nashville in 1993 by co-leads Gary Bennett and Chuck Mead. Their music, referred to as alternative country or neotraditional, contains elements of western swing and rockabilly. They eschew modern Top 40 pop-country for a more raw, honky-tonk sound, with songs about 50s pin-up/dominatrix Bettie Page and The Ramones. They took their name from a telephone number regularly used in a Junior Samples sketch on the television show Hee Haw.

    Well, a Cherokee chief as he dances along
    He does an Indian boogie to a white man's song

    A well a hey ho a lina, wup wup a witten a yeah
    Well, he dances over here and he dances over there

    Lyrics
    I roll out every mornin' I drink my coffee on the run
    Working for the man just the way my daddy done
    Well the money I'm makin' ain't buyin' much bacon but when payday comes along
    Sometimes I gotta do somethin' even if it's wrong
    The telephone keeps ringin' and it gets under my skin

    Lyrics
    We used to be so happy, we used to be so true
    We used to think there wasn't anything we couldn't do
    But they could see right through us we didn't seem to care
    We were on a highway that ain't going anywhere
    They told us we were wrong, a thousand times
