With a CMA nomination for Vocal Duo of the Year and a Top 15 hit in “Stay a Little Longer,” John and TJ Osborne, collectively known as Brothers Osborne, are gearing up for the release of their debut album. Titled Pawn Shop, the LP is set for release January 15th on the EMI Nashville label.
Featuring 11 tracks, all of which the Maryland-born siblings had a hand in co-writing (with heavyweight writers including Barry Dean, Craig Wiseman, Shane McAnally, Jessi Alexander and more), Pawn Shop is the Osbornes’ bid to deliver music that they believe will have some staying power. The siblings produced the record with Jay Joyce (Eric Church).
“I think people are tired of the bullshit and are ready for the real substance,” guitarist John Osborne told Rolling Stone Country earlier this year, after the pair’s debut single “Rum” was released.
“We went through an era of big hit songs that no one is going to listen to 10 years from now,” says lead vocalist T.J. “And we’re about to hit a decade of country that I think is going to be played for a long time. It’s about to hit the same stride it hit in the Nineties.”
The blue-collar brothers, who previously toured with Darius Rucker, Little Big Town and Kacey Musgraves, among others, will be hitting the road with Jon Pardi as part of the All Time High Tour.
