Two sons from a working-class family, John and TJ Osborne grew up in a small, Maryland water town writing and playing songs for friends and family in their father’s shed. John moved to Nashville first to play in other bands and two years later, TJ joined him. It was then they formed Brothers Osborne as a twang-and-crunch duo that blends equal parts country and rock into one of the freshest, most identifiable sounds to come out of Nashville in recent years. The singer/songwriter siblings recently won both “Vocal Duo of the Year” and “New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year” at the 52nd ACM Awards and they also stand as the reigning CMA “Vocal Duo of the Year”. Brothers Osborne’s debut album PAWN SHOP was released January 2016 and features their current rowdy single “It Ain’t My Fault” in addition to the GRAMMY-nominated, No.1 smash hit “Stay A Little Longer” as well as the GRAMMY-nominated “21 Summer.” Brothers Osborne just embarked on their first-headlining The Dirt Rich Tour this past fall after previously touring with the likes of Eric Church, Little Big Town, and Miranda Lambert. They will join Chris Stapleton on the road this summer as part of his All-American Road Show Tour.
Some of Brothers Osborne’s hit songs:
