The Brothers Osborne Are Headed to the GRAMMYs

The Brothers Osborne were 2023’s CMA Duo Vocalist of the Year. Now they’re nominated for another GRAMMY, after winning their first in 2022. Read on to get to know more about the forward-thinking country music duo.

Brothers Osborne are fronted by real-life brothers TJ and John Osborne. Born in Deale, Maryland, the two brothers earned a record deal in 2012 and signed with EMI Records Nashville. The band has put out four full-length albums, including Pawn Shop (2015), Port Saint Joe (2018), Skeletons (2020) and Brothers Osborne (2023).

Their first GRAMMY nomination arrived before their debut album did. Speaking to the Baltimore Sun, the brothers addressed what the GRAMMYs mean for new artists. John said, “That wasn’t in the realm of possibility in our minds. We saw our name in the category and I had to read it 10 times for it to even register. It’s still something that shocks me to this day.”

TJ added, “The Grammys are your payoff for sticking to your guns and not taking the easy road.”

They lost that year, something John addressed in the interview. “I would be lying if I said losing anything isn’t at least somewhat disappointing because you have high hopes. Who wouldn’t want to win a Grammy? To be that close and lose — it doesn’t feel great.”

However, their victory would come in 2022 when the pair won the Best Country Duo/Group Performance award for their song “Younger Me.” For this year’s GRAMMYs, the band is nominated for Best Country Album and again for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for “Nobody’s Nobody.”

Brothers Osborne on Tour

The brothers’ 2024 tour begins on March 28th. The 35-date Might as Well Be Us tour is a massive venture. The brothers are jetting all over the United States, with stops including arenas in Milwaukee, Boston, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Las Vegas, Atlanta and Chicago.

Openers for the tour include Zach Top, Madeline Edwards, Jackson Dean, Stephen Wilson Jr., The Cadillac Three and Caylee Hammack.
