Brothers Osborne            

Country Music Duo Known For "Stay a Little Longer" & "21 Summer"

Brothers Osborne is a country music duo consisting of brothers T.J. Osborne (lead vocals, rhythm guitar) and John Osborne (lead guitar, background vocals), both natives of Deale, Maryland. The duo, who signed a recording contract with EMI Records Nashville in 2012, began their music career by performing with their father and later formed a band called Deuces and a Quarter before their major breakthrough.

Over their career, they have released a self-titled EP and several studio albums, including 2016's "Pawn Shop," 2018's "Port Saint Joe," 2020's "Skeletons," and their self-titled album, "Brothers Osborne," in 2023. Each album has made significant chart impacts, with "Pawn Shop" reaching number three on the Billboard Country Albums chart. Their best-known song, "Stay a Little Longer," became a top five hit on the Billboard Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts. Other notable hits include "It Ain't My Fault" (2017), "Shoot Me Straight" (2018), and "All Night" (2019).

The Brothers Osborne have collaborated with notable artists such as David Nail, Dierks Bentley, Lee Ann Womack, and Lucie Silvas, the latter of whom is John's wife. Their collaborative projects earned them nominations from the Country Music Association. The duo's musical style, taking influence from Southern rock and outlaw country, is shaped by producer Jay Joyce and various artists they've worked with over the years.

They have been recognized with several industry awards, including Vocal Duo of the Year from the Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association, and they also received a Grammy Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance in 2022. Their musical journey was extended beyond studio recordings in 2019 when they released a live album, "Live from the Ryman."

The duo made headlines in 2021 when T.J. Osborne publicly came out as gay, making him the first openly gay artist on a major country music label. His brother, John Osborne, has openly shared his experiences with anxiety disorder and clinical depression, leading to the cancellation of tours and recording sessions. He has undergone therapy and medication to treat his condition.

Their third studio album, originally titled "Skeletons," was not only released on October 9, 2020, but also saw a re-release in 2022 with three additional songs. They celebrated this by covering The Rolling Stones' "It's Only Rock 'n Roll (But I Like It)" at the Country Music Association awards that year.
