With worldwide record sales in the hundreds of thousands; a few hit singles charted; a Grammy nomination to their credit and an international touring history most bands can only fantasize about, one can only wonder how the North Texas area quartet turned "beer is delicious" into a longstanding career.

(You know: the Britney and Justin Jive Records. Their premier effort for the label, Let's Do It Johnny!! made an initial splash in the UK as a result of some intense road work there. By the end of the album's cycle, BFS was a legitimate club headliner across the pond, and the ripples began to be felt back home.
Then, in 2002, with the release of their sophomore platter for Juve, Drunk Enough to Dance; as the kids say, "shit got real!" BFS had their first in a series of hit singles on their hans with "Girl All the Bad Guys Want." A couple of successful subsequent singles followed, and when all was said and done, BFS had a gold record on the wall, and stood atop the Grammy award podium alongside such pop icons as No Doubt, 'Nsync, Bon Jovi and Dave Matthews Band. They didn't that Best Pop Performance by a Duo of Group Grammy, but as evidenced by their entire career, the fellas were very happy.
