It’s been another long and crazy year on the road for Brothers Osborne, who toured with both Eric Church and Chris Stapleton. And, of course their set always includes their latest big hit, “It Ain’t My Fault.” The hilarious video for that song featuring the reigning ACM Vocal Duo of the Year robbing a pawnshop, which, not so coincidentally, is also the title of their debut album, which is a rich collection of sounds and influences from their mid-Atlantic seaboard upbringing.
T.J. Osborne’s smoky lead vocals and John Osborne’s stunning guitar work helped the Maryland-bred brothers also capture their second consecutive CMA Vocal Duo trophy in 2017.
Their road band served as the core studio team for “Pawn Shop,” helping to set their edgy sound apart. And now, the twosome has already started writing and recording their sophomore project with noted producer Jay Joyce in Florida.
The Brothers played in a local band called Deuce and a Quarter before moving to Nashville to pursue their music in earnest, but they cut their teeth as youngsters performing in living room jam sessions with family and friends. They have extended that spirit of that close as kin vibe to their fans, who are known to the duo as “Family.”
The brothers are now nominated for Duo of Group of the Year in the Rare Country Awards, and it’s up to you to decide the winner. Voting begins Nov. 13 at RareCountryAwards.com and runs until Dec. 13. Winners will be revealed during a livestreamed concert on Dec. 14.
