Brothers Osborne release their highly anticipated sophomore album, Port Saint Joe, today. In support of the album release, John and TJ Osborne will perform their current Top 40 single “Shoot Me Straight” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert April 23rd.
The GRAMMY-nominated duo co-wrote all 10 tracks on Port Saint Joe which was produced by Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Little Big Town).
Fans can watch a special Facebook Live performance of several Port Saint Joe tracks from Terrapin Care Station in Denver, Colorado starting at 11am CT HERE. Afterwards, Brothers Osborne will host a Reddit AMA “Ask Me Anything” at 12pm CT.
“After years of writing, traveling, playing and evolving we’re finally releasing new music,” says John Osborne. “This music, tracked in a beach house in Florida, is a sonic representation of the road we’ve been traveling.”
TJ adds, “in the making of Port Saint Joe, we weren’t trying to be anything or anyone that wasn’t truly us. Imperfections and all.”
Critics continue to praise the new record with Rolling Stone calling it “a superlative new album…cementing their status as a band essential to the vitality of today’s country music.” The New York Times notes it’s “an invigoratingly footloose follow up” and The Tennessean says it’s “raw, direct, guitar-driven songs delivered with an intensity that leaves no room for doubt: Brothers Osborne is as authentic as it gets.”
The singer/songwriter siblings recently took home two trophies at the 53rd Annual ACM Awards and maintained their reign as “Vocal Duo of the Year” in addition to winning “Video of the Year” for their rowdy Top 10 hit “It Ain’t My Fault”.
Brothers Osborne are set to perform next Saturday, April 28 at Stagecoach Festival in Indio, California. The Maryland natives will then embark on their first headlining UK tour starting May 4 in Dublin, Ireland with additional stops in Belfast, London, Manchester, Glasgow and more.
This summer, the duo will join Dierks Bentley on the “Mountain High Tour” kicking off May 17 in Columbia, MD. Tickets and additional information can be found at www.brothersosborne.com

Brothers Osborne (recording in a house) OC: (JOHN) …the right move. 1:10
JOHN: “The studio wasn’t a studio. It was a house. I mean the place was not in any way, shape or form built for recording, which made it even cooler. That was the best part about it so we just set up in the living room. The drums set up near the fireplace. The ceiling was kind of vaulted so we got some pretty cool room sounds. And the kitchen was all there in one spot and Jay had his brother come down and he was cooking food for us. So, literally as we were tracking drums, guitar, bass, we’re all in this room together.” TJ: “It’s the kitchen, living room and dining room were in one big communal room.” JOHN: “Yeah. And they were flipping burgers. If you solo some tracks, you can actually hear him cooking, like spoons banging and pots banging on the stove. So, it was cool. We were over there jamming and we look over and he’s just like over there playing air guitar and making food. This is not how you’re supposed to do it. We were in Nashville where there’s like a $1 million studio everywhere you look. It’s the mecca for recording, and we decided to scrap that whole thing and just go down to a beach house that is not meant for recording at all and just have fun. I think it was the right move.”
