Brothers Osborne are heading out on their own tour later this year! The duo, made up of siblings TJ and John Osborne, will wrap up their run as the opening act on Dierks Bentley's Mountain High Tour, and then launch their own tour, kicking off on August 26 in Charlottesville, Va.
The reigning ACM Vocal Duo of the Year are currently in the Top 30, and climbing, with their single, "Shoot Me Straight." The song is the debut single from their sophomore Port Saint Joe album. The tune, like much of Port Saint Joe, was recorded live in the Florida town that became the project's namesake.
"We had tracked that song a few different times over the two-week course of staying there, and one of the last nights we were there we had some friends all come down from Nashville and we just set up in the room," John recalls of the tune. "It was late at night. We had all been drinking and partying a little bit, and [producer Jay Joyce] wanted us to get in front of our friends and jam, and that was the take. He wouldn't let us fix anything. I'm glad that he didn't because music these days it's so perfect. I mean you can go back and fix everything all you want until the cows come home, but this record is a snapshot of just what happened.
"[In] the four minutes in time this is what happened and that's it," he continues. "And some of our favorite music listening to is that. It's just a live moment that was captured in time and you can't really recreate that."
In addition to shows in the United States, Brothers Osborne will also perform in Canada and the UK. The Wild Feathers and Lucie Silvas (married to John Osborne), will serve as the opening acts. Dates can be found below. For ticket and venue information, visit BrothersOsborne.com.
