• BROTHERS OSBORNE RELY ON THE BEACH FOR THE TITLE OF THEIR NEW ALBUM, PORT SAINT JOE.

    Brothers Osborne are gearing up to release their sophomore album, Port Saint Joe, next month. The pair went down to Florida and holed up in a beach house to record songs for the collection, and they were so affected by their time down there making music, they decided to title the album after Port Saint Joe, Florida.

    “Our next record, Port Saint Joe, is a record that we recorded in Port Saint Joe, Florida,” says John Osborne. “We just shacked up in a beach house for two weeks and we just played music that felt good to us. We recorded them all live. We left all of the mistakes in there. We left it nice and raw. We tracked 10 songs.”

    “Once we were done recording it there, we were still affected by the location of where it was that we decided to go ahead and title the record after it and call it Port Saint Joe,” says TJ Osborne.

    Port Saint Joe, featuring the duo’s current single “Shoot Me Straight,” is available April 20th.

    Brothers Osborne are nominated for two ACM Awards – Vocal Duo of the Year and Video of the Year for “It Ain’t My Fault.” The 53rd Annual ACM Awards will broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas April 15th at 8pm ET on CBS.

    Brothers Osborne (Port Saint Joe) OC: …Port Saint Joe. :29
    JOHN: “Our next record, Port Saint Joe, is a record that we recorded in Port Saint Joe, Florida. We just shacked up in a beach house for two weeks and we just played music that felt good to us. We recorded them all live. We left all of the mistakes in there. We left it nice and raw. We tracked 10 songs.” TJ: “Yeah, and so once we were done recording it there, we’re still affected by the location of where it was that we decided to go ahead and title the record after it and call it Port Saint Joe.”

  • SUPERSTAR ARTISTS RE-IMAGINE ELTON JOHN’S BIGGEST HITS IN NEW PROJECTS.

    Some of the world’s biggest pop, rock and country artists are celebrating Elton John’s most beloved and legendary catalogue of hits with two albums Revamp (Island Records) and Restoration (Universal Music Group Nashville) to be released on April 6th. The superstar lineup features artists both new and iconic reinterpreting the timeless songs of the over 50 year writing partnership that Elton and Bernie Taupin share.  These renditions and artists show the depth of the catalogue these two icons have created, which can easily cross musical genres and their unparalleled influence across popular music of all styles.

    Restoration highlights countries biggest stars with thoughtful interpretations by Dierks Bentley, Rosanne Cash and Emmylou Harris, Miley Cyrus, Vince Gill and Don Henley, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, Willie Nelson, Brothers Osborne, Chris Stapleton, Rhonda Vincent and Dolly Parton and Lee Ann Womack.

    Revamp features the hits reimagined by the best in pop, rock and urban with Mary J. Blige,  Coldplay, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, The Killers, Mumford and Sons, P!nk and Logic, Q-Tip ft. Demi Lovato, Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith.

    “’It’s always a huge compliment when an artist loves your song enough to take the time and effort to rework it,” adds Elton John. “As songwriters, Bernie and myself are thrilled when singers we admire and respect as much as those on Revamp & Restoration choose to add their own unique twist in the process. It means that our music is still relevant and ultimately that our songs continue to reach new audiences. We’re humbled and thank them all for their generosity.”

    “Because of our love of all kinds of music, we’re not stuck in one genre,” said Bernie Taupin. “From day one we borrowed from everything that’s good about American music – whether it’s blues, country, gospel, pop, pure rock – everything got thrown in the mix. I think that’s why our music over the years has been so varied. It would be tiring if you just got stuck in one niche your entire career, especially when it’s one as long as ours.”

    The album art for Restoration was created by Bernie. The rustic musical instruments and flags from both nations is an extension of his mixed-media art that’s another form of expression. It symbolizes the role that U.S. culture and its native music has played as a driver in the John/Taupin canon.

    “For me, there’s an irony about the American flag,” Taupin says. “It’s been battered and beaten and burned, but it’s resilient. It’s always come back. I incorporate it with other things, and lately I’ve done a lot of pieces with deconstructed guitars and other found materials: barbed wire, broken bottles, things that people identify with on an everyday level.  If it’s on the floor and it works, I’ll put it into the artwork. But it all goes hand in hand with my belief in America and my interest, I would say obsession, with Americana.”

    “We have two completely different albums; Revamp being the pop one and Restoration being the country one and God we have so many great artists doing our songs, it’s quite incredible,” said Elton John. “Restoration was Bernie’s project and he’s a huge country fan. The ‘Revamp’ was more my project. He came up with an astonishing list of country performers both new and legendary.”

  • ACM AWARDS 2018: Reactions

    Chris Stapleton leads the list of nominees with eight nods in five categories, including Entertainer, Male Vocalist, Single of the Year for “Broken Halos,” Song of the Year for “Whiskey and You” and Album of the Year for From a Room, Vol. 1. He’s won numerous awards over the past few years, and while he’s grateful for every single trophy he takes home, he has a special affinity for the Album categories.

    “They are all significant and if you get one award for anything it’s a treat. But any of the awards that awarded the album, the album awards, because I really wanted to make an album that was good,” says Chris. “I wanted that to be a thing, again, more than I wanted it to be, ‘Well here’s the single and eight other songs.’ So, the album awards for me were important in that we did our job in a good way, you know. Just I have such an affinity for albums that I don’t know if I want those more or if they mean more, but they are all meaningful.”

    Luke Bryan has won a handful of ACM Awards over his career, including the New Artist of the Year Award in 2010 following it up with two Entertainer Awards just a few years later. He tell us he is honored to be included in that category. “[I’m] so honored to have another Entertainer of the Year nomination and I always think about winning my first Entertainer of the Year [Award] at the ACMs,” he says. “To go to the ACMs knowing that you’re one of those lucky people that have that nomination, it just tells me that I’m doing all I can and doing the right things out on the road and hopefully, the fans are still loving what I’m trying to give to them every night.”

    Keith Urban has quite the plethora of nods going into this year’s ACM Awards, including Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, Song of the Year for “Female”  and twice, as both artist and producer in the Vocal Event of the Year category for “The Fighter” (featuring Carrie Underwood). Urban won Top New Male Vocalist of the Year in 2000, and Top Male Vocalist of the Year in 2004 and 2005.

    Keith posted to his socials that he was “extremely grateful” for all of the recognition.”

    Keith’s “Female” was nominated for Song of the Year. The Top 10 hit was written by Nicolle Galyon, Shane McAnally and Ross Copperman, and he said he just had a feel that he needed to record the song and let everyone hear it. “The song spoke to me. It just spoke to me,” said Keith. “As I was singing it, I thought I feel like I’ve known this song my whole life. Something else was going on with it how it felt to me. So, I love it. I believe in it. I didn’t record it for any other reason than it was a heart reaction that I had to it.”

     

    In addition to Vocal Event of the Year for “The Fighter” with Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, is also nominated in the Female Vocalist of the Year category.

    Brothers Osborne could possibly take home a pair of trophies next month. TJ and John are up for Vocal Duo of the Year and Video of the Year for “It Ain’t My Fault.”

     

    Sam Hunt could also win two awards next month. He’s up for Single and Song of the Year for his HUGE hit “Body Like a Back Road.”

     

    Dierks Bentley is nominated for Video of the Year for his steamy video, “Black,” which stars his wife Cassidy. The beautiful clip was shot in Iceland in nearly subzero temperatures.

    Reigning Vocal Group of the Year, Little Big Town, earned their twelfth nomination in the category. This would be their fourth consecutive win and fifth overall. They are also nominated for Album of the Year for Breaker and Single Record of the Year for “Better Man.”

    Lady Antebellum won their first ACM Award in 2008 with the Top New Vocal Duo or Group Award. Just two years later, they took home their first Vocal Group of the Year Award, followed by another and another, as well as Single, Song and Album Awards along the way. They’re once again nominated for Vocal Group, an honor they certainly don’t take for granted.

     

    Last year Jon Pardi won the Top New Male Vocalist Award. This year, he’s up for Album of the Year for California Sunrise, which has yielded three No. 1 singles and a fourth hit.

     

    Lauren Alaina, who’s making her way up the country charts with “Doin’ Fine,” is up for two awards, including Top New Female Vocalist and Vocal Event of the Year for “What Ifs” with pal Kane Brown.

    Keith Urban (Female feeling) OC: …had to it. :42
    “It’s a feeling. It’s more of a feeling. It’s not as cerebral for me, the song spoke to me. It just spoke to me. When I went down into the studio to put a vocal on it; my intention was to put a vocal on the demo. I called Ross Copperman and I said, ‘Can you send me the track that you recorded and leave the vocal off, and I’ll go down to my studio and I’ll sing over the top of it and I’ll see if this fits me because it feels really right.’ And I went down and I sang it, and as I was singing it, I thought I feel like I’ve known this song my whole life. Something else was going on with it how it felt to me. So, I love it. I believe in it.  I didn’t record it for any other reason than it was a heart reaction that I had to it.”

    LBT (The Breaker album) 2 OC: …intangible. :27
    “We peeled through some layers of ourselves to get to this place in these songs. We couldn’t just throw a vocal on there. It’s like everything we did had to come from a deeper place this time, and we didn’t have the luxury of time to just kind of, ‘Well, I’ll just try it tomorrow.’ You had to get there. We had to find performances, and that’s what we did. We’re all about getting the performance, the true, that magic, that kind of like intangible.”

  • BROTHERS OSBORNE ARE FEATURED IN THE NEW FRYE COMPANY CAMPAIGN.

    John and TJ Osborne, aka Brothers Osborne, have been tapped by Frye for the American footwear company’s new Hometown Pride Campaign.
    “Frye is a company deeply rooted in our country’s history. Not to mention the undeniable style and quality.” – Brothers Osborne

    The partnership includes in-store activations such as exclusive “first listen” events for Brothers Osborne’s new music, giving fans a chance to preview the band’s sophomore album, Port Saint

    Joe. Vinyl copies of the album will be sold in select FRYE stores starting April 20th. Together Brothers Osborne and FRYE will host a sweepstakes to win a trip to New York, meet and greet

    with the band and VIP tickets to their Mountain High Tour with Dierks Bentley. Brothers Osborne fans can learn more about their upcoming album at Portsaintjoe.brothersosborne.com

     

    The new campaign highlights local talent and underscores FRYE’s deep music roots through a celebration of Nashville’s flourishing scene. Hometown Pride, photographed by Gregory Harris, reveals candid images of Brothers Osborne, reflecting the authentic style and personality of the Nashville-based duo.

     

    Two sons from a working-class family, John and TJ Osborne grew up in a small-town writing and playing songs for friends and family. Similar to John A. Frye’s longstanding tradition of building community and finely crafting unique product, Brothers Osborne precisely craft their music to create an identifiable sound all their own, resonating with Nashville fans and beyond. The Brothers have won back-to-back CMA Awards for “Vocal Duo of the Year”, in addition to “Music Video of the Year” for their top-10 Grammy-nominated single, “It Ain’t My Fault”. They also stand as the reigning ACM “Vocal Duo of the Year.”

     

    Music, an integral part of the brand’s DNA, is brought to life through FRYE’s monthly in-store music series in Nashville, FRYEDAYS. This homegrown original series has featured intimate live performances by Brent Cobb, Langhorne Slim and Rayland Baxter and has quickly earned a cult following.

    As original craftsmen, The Frye Company continues its tradition of honoring makers and valuing community – connecting quality and craft to the music that is so deeply rooted in the brand’s

    history.

  • SAM HUNT ANNOUNCES THE FIRST-EVER ‘THE NASHIONAL’ MUSIC FESTIVAL.

    Multi-platinum-selling artist Sam Hunt announced that he will be curating his first-ever music festival The Nashional this spring at the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park in Nashville, TN on Friday, April 20 and Saturday, April 21. Hunt will be headlining the musically diverse line-up that includes Nashville genre-bending band Judah & The Lion, R&B rapper Fetty Wap, American country music duo Brothers Osborne, west coast rapper Kyle, indie-pop artist Quinn XCII, LA’s indie-rock band LANY, American country music band LANCO, electronica singer/songwriter/producer Chelsea Cutler, Nashville-based rapper Ernest K. and contemporary country duo Muscadine Bloodline, making it one of the most eclectic music events this spring. Tickets go on sale on Friday, February 9 at 10 AM CT at www.ticketmaster.com.

    The Nashional is a unique two-day event that highlights the inclusive, diverse, and genre-blurring landscape of music today.  Nashville’s Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park will be home to this inaugural event and will feature an experiential environment for fans to enjoy.  Hunt, whose own eclectic style owes its roots to country music with influences in pop, folk and R&B, was inspired to create this festival while out on his “15 In a 30” national tour this past summer.

    “The sense of community in Nashville helps give it the character and personality that makes me proud to be a part of it,” says Hunt. “I wanted to create an experience at The Nashional that celebrates music, community, and everything they mean to each other and this city.”

    Hunt not only made history with his critically-acclaimed, Grammy-nominated debut album, Montevallo but has also delivered this summer’s smash hit “Body Like A Back Road” which landed on the Billboard “Hot 100” as his highest debuting single. It also premiered at No. 1 on iTunes charts. Since, the single has smashed records, becoming the fastest country song to ever reach 100 million and 200 million streams. It has become an RIAA-certified triple platinum track, and has broken a record six decades in the making, spending 35 consecutive weeks atop the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. The single also climbed pop and adult airplay charts, making it a cross-over hit. Hunt consequently earned two Grammy nominations for “Body Like A Back Road” in both the “Best Country Song” and “Best Country Solo Performance” categories.

    Hunt’s debut album on MCA Nashville, Montevallo, is the best-selling debut album from a country artist since 2011. Since the album’s release, Hunt has accumulated over 2.53 billion streams and has earned an additional 10.5 million in RIAA single certifications.  In 2016, Hunt earned his first-ever Grammy® nomination for “Best New Artist” and “Best Country Album.”  He also celebrated his first American Music Award earning the all-genre “New Artist of the Year” title and was nominated for four Billboard Music Awards. Sam is currently nominated for “Favorite Male Artist – Country” and “Favorite Song – Country” for the 2017 American Music Awards.

    Brothers Osborne will head into Sunday night’s (January 28th) GRAMMY Awards with their third Grammy nomination, which seems pretty surreal to John and TJ.

    “Being nominated for a GRAMMY is genuinely something you dream of as a kid, you know, when you’re sitting in your room learning to play a guitar solo for the umpteenth-jillionth time,” says John. “You think of yourself like, ‘I want to be on stage one day. I want to be nominated or win a Grammy,’ but to you it’s just a dream. It’s like, ‘It probably won’t happen,’ then all of a sudden you wake up and you’re like, ‘We literally just got nominated for our third Grammy, and this is insane. How did this happen?’ After years and years of hard work, you forget about those things. I mean, not entirely. You just lose sight of it a little bit, and all of a sudden, you wake up with something like that and you’re like, ‘Wow! All this is paying off.’”

    They’re nominated in the Best Country Duo/Group Performance category for their Top 10 rowdy hit “It Ain’t My Fault.” This nomination joins their previously nominated performances for their No.1 Platinum smash hit “Stay A Little Longer” as well as the nostalgic “21 Summer.”

    John and TJ will perform during the telecast to help honor the victims and their families of the Route 91 Harvest Festival tragedy, along with their friends Eric Church and Maren Morris.

    The 60th Annual Grammy Awards will air live from Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sunday beginning at 7:30p ET on CBS.

You just lose sight of it a little bit, and all of a sudden, you wake up with something like that and you’re like, ‘Wow! All this is paying off.’ It means a lot because all of the people who have come before us that have been nominated and won Grammys are always very respectful and authentic artists, and we’re just grateful to be a part of it.”

  • EMOTIONS WILL RUN HIGH FOR BROTHERS OSBORNE AT THIS YEAR’S GRAMMY AWARDS.

    Brothers Osborne  help honor the victims and their families of the Route 91 Harvest Festival tragedy during Sunday night’s show, along with their friends Eric Church and Maren Morris. TJ says instead of nervous about performing on the Grammy stage for the first time on Sunday (January 28th), he’ll be on the emotional end of the spectrum.

    “I think there’s a lot of nerves around playing the Grammys because you’re in front of the upper echelon of all genres there in one room,” says TJ. “For me, I think in a way that it’s a tribute to those victims that it kind of takes it off of that to me…I think I’ll be far more emotional than I will be nervous. I think that’s my worry is just getting through the performance in that regard.”

    John says he’s feeling a lot of gratitude to be able to perform on the Grammys to honor the victims and their families. “We feel very, very fortunate to be able to play on the Grammys, especially with Eric and Maren, who are two very good friends of ours. That will take a lot of the focus off of it, because there are nerves surrounding it,” says John. “But I think…the most important thing about that moment is honoring the victims and their families above all else. And I just hope that, at the end of the day, we can help heal something, at least a little bit.”

    The duo are nominated for the Best Country Duo/Group Performance category for their Top 10 rowdy hit “It Ain’t My Fault.”

    The 60th Annual Grammy Awards will air live from Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sunday beginning at 7:30p ET on CBS.

For me, I think in a way that it’s a tribute to those victims that it kind of takes it off of that to me…I think I’ll be far more emotional than I will be nervous. I think that’s really my worry—is just getting through the performance in that regard. But it’s certainly an incredible honor to not only play the Grammys, but to do it for that occasion.”

  • BROTHERS OSBORNE ANNOUNCE THE TITLE AND RELEASE DATE OF THEIR NEW ALBUM, PORT SAINT JOE.

    As announced this morning by The Associated Press, EMI Nashville’s Brothers Osborne will release their sophomore album Port Saint Joe April 20. The two-time CMA “Vocal Duo of the Year” just released their new single “Shoot Me Straight” off the project which was produced by Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Little Big Town). John and TJ Osborne co-wrote every track on Port Saint Joe along with frequent collaborators Lee Thomas Miller, Kendall Marvel, Barry Dean, Shane McAnally, Troy Verges and more.  The title, Port Saint Joe, reflects the small town on the Florida coast where the real-life siblings recorded the album.

    Port Saint Joe is a sonic representation of who we’ve become not only as a band but as people,” says John Osborne. “Every show we’ve ever played together is on this record. Every song we’ve ever written and every mile we’ve ever ridden has led to the making of this record. Imperfections and all.”

    TJ adds, “we shacked up for two weeks to make an unabashed record that would reflect who we are in every way, and in the process we had the most enjoyable and memorable recording experience of our lives.”

    Brothers Osborne (recorded album in Florida) OC: …creative way. :24
    JOHN: “We went down to Florida to Jay Joyce’s beach house, who also produces Lanco, as well. It wasn’t even a studio. We were like, ‘We’ll just figure it out.’ We set up mics and we set up a desk. And Jay Joyce had his brother in the kitchen literally that was attached to where we were playing in the living room so you could solo some tracks and hear pots and pans clanging. So, that’s how we did it…to get away from the distractions allows you to focus in a more creative way.”
