Currently in the throes of a US tour, the Maryland siblings recently put a huge tick on their career bucket list, selling out three showsin one week at the famed Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, where they headlined the legendary venue for the first time.
Each night featured different special guests, including Dierks Bentley, who joined them for the hit number ‘Burning Man’, Maren Morris, who sang on ‘Greener Pastures’, and Lee Ann Womack who took to the stage for the powerful from-the-heart duet that is ‘Loving Me Back’.
As is always the case at a Brothers Osborneouting, ‘It Ain’t My Fault’ – the Platinum-selling hit single and hugely popular video from the band’s debut ‘Pawn Shop’ album (2016) – proved a highlight of the dynamic live show, impressing fans and critics alike.
The reigning ACM & CMA Vocal Duo of the Year, Brothers Osborne recently debuted the music video for their current single ‘I Don’t Remember Me (Before You)’. This emotive clip centres around a professional bull rider who struggles to get his life back on track as he battles with substance abuse; the footage builds to a surprise ending that will tug at your heartstrings.
