Nashville-based country duo Brothers Osborne became one of the genre's hottest acts out of the gate. Both clocking in at over six feet tall, the brothers command the stage with ease and charisma as they tear through crowd favorites like the free-spirited "Let's Go There", the subtle lullaby "Love The Lonely Out Of You", and the booze-soaked summer anthem "Rum". Each song is crafted with catchy hooks, tight harmonies, and singalong choruses that highlight singer TJ's dynamic baritone and guitarist John's soulful grooves. Combining the old school twang of Merle Haggard and Hank Williams with the modern flare of Zac Brown Band, the down-home duo is showing ticket buyers a rollicking good time with their classic country shows.
John and TJ Osborne grew up in Deale, MD in a close-knit family of seven. As children they formed a band called Deuce & A Quarter with their father, performing cover songs by Lynyrd Skynyrd and Bob Seger at local venues. In the mid-'00s John moved to Nashville to work as a backing musician and TJ followed two years later. Soon they began performing together as Brothers Osborne and gained traction in the local circuit with buzzed-about concerts. In 2011 Warner Chappell/King Pen Music offered them a publishing deal, and a year later they inked a record deal with EMI Records Nashville. In 2014 the duo released their self-titled five-song EP, which includes the fan favorite anthem "Rum", and finished the year touring alongside country stars Lee Brice and Chris Young. With their highly-anticipated debut album arriving in 2015, as well as an opening slot on Eric Church's The Outsiders World Tour, the brothers are keeping more than busy.
