Introducing The Brothers Osborne: "Rock’n’roll is about attitude"

Refusing to compromise has paid off for the Grammy-nominated country/rock siblings

“Country music and classic rock go hand in hand,” says John Osborne, one half of fast-rising aces Brothers Osborne. “Rock’n’roll is about an attitude more than anything. We grew up listening to music we thought was genuine – authentic country and rock’n’roll from the sixties and seventies. It’s a huge part of what we are.”

Siblings TJ and John are currently the hottest duo in Nashville. Trading as Brothers Osborne, their debut album Pawn Shop, which covers a range of styles from surly southern rock to country twang to smouldering slide-blues, has already racked up six-figure sales in the US, bolstered by hit singles Rum, 21 Summer and Stay A Little Longer. They won Vocal Duo Of The Year at last year’s Country Music Association Awards, and the first of their two Grammy nominations before Pawn Shop had even been released.
