Denver, CO — When T.J and John Osborne grew up playing music in their fathers shed, they may have never imaged they’d one day play sold out venues as “Brothers Osborne”, become Grammy winners or win multiple CMA awards.

The story dates back to 80s when the brothers were born in Deale, Maryland. It was during their childhood together that they began to write and perform. Years down the line, as their site puts it,

“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”

Signed by EMI Records Nashville, Brothers Osborne released their debut song titled “Let’s Go There.” in 2013. Many anticpated the success of the new duo. Although their first full album Pawn Shop wasn’t released until 2016, it reached number three on the Billboard country albums chart and number 17 on the Billboard 200.

Since then, the duo has been nominated for 10 GRAMMYs, won six CMA and six ACM awards. Specifically, the brothers have won five CMA Vocal Duo of the Year, and are three-time ACM Duo of the Year.

Further, beyond their awards and billions of song streams, the duo has multiple RIAA Gold and Platinum certifications.
