There is an arguement (and probably a pretty strong one at that) that BR5-49 are not actually an Americana band. It is more country with just a shade of rockabilly.
However in the music room there are two country sections - mainstream and the rest. The rest which is largely Americana occupy the blue shelves as opposed to the white ones and it is from the blue shelves that I selected the 50 albums for this series last November.
BR5-49 were a Nashville band . The name BR5-49 is the telephone number of a used car dealer in a running comedy sketch from the American TV series Hee HawThey lost the hyphen somewhere along the way around the time that they also lost their front man Chuck Mead. A word of advise no hyphen there should equal no purchase.
