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 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 currently reign as three-time CMA Vocal Duo of the Year in addition to being named ACM Vocal Duo of the Year the past two years. Overall, Brothers Osborne have collected four CMA and five ACM trophies including Video of the Year wins for their Top 10 GRAMMY-nominated Platinum single “It Ain’t My Fault.”

Brothers Osborne’s debut album Pawn Shop was released January 2016 and has been certified Gold by the RIAA. Pawn Shop features three GRAMMY-nominated tracks including “It Ain’t My Fault,” the Platinum certified No. 1 smash hit “Stay A Little Longer,” as well as Top 25 hit “21 Summer.” Their sophomore album, Port Saint Joe, was recently nominated for Best Country Album at the 61st GRAMMY Awards and features the Top 40 singles “Shoot Me Straight” as well as “I Don’t Remember Me (Before You).”
