    Billy Currington (Halloween) OC: …Halloween. :17
    “You know, when I was a kid, I loved the trick and the treat. I loved dressing up. I was always wanting to be Dracula. That was my favorite guy. But, of course, who doesn’t love going door-to-door and getting these buckets of candy? [laughs] So, love, love Halloween.”

    Audio / Brothers Osborne’s TJ and John Osborne talk about dressing up like zombies for Halloween.

    Download

    Brothers Osborne (zombie costume) OC: (John) …was so fun! :29
    TJ: “Literally, you can dress up like a zombie and drag your foot behind you all day and make weird noises, and everyone finds that completely acceptable.” [laughs] JOHN: “One year I dressed up as a ‘90s redneck zombie with a mullet wig and an Alan Jackson denim coat. I never once broke character. That’s part of the thing — you can actually not break character and get away with it. And everywhere I went, even when I ordered a drink, I ordered it like a zombie that was falling apart. [laughs] It was so fun!”

    Audio / Brothers Osborne (Halloween candy) OC: (John) …go stale. [laughs] :34

    TJ: “I would say, Snickers, Baby Ruth, Kit Kat and Reese’s too.” JOHN: “I always hated those houses that would give you bad candy, though. You’re like, ‘C’mon. Step it up.’ Spend the extra dollar on a bag, you know?” TJ: “A house when we were growing up used to give out whole candy bars. It was the best. You were like, ‘That house – that’s the honey hole of candy.’” JOHN: “I love it, and I love like at the end, like three or four days after Halloween you would see what candy was left, and it was always like those crappy cheap candies, and they would just go stale.” [laughs]

    Audio / Brothers Osborne’s John Osborne talks about carving pumpkins with their dad when they were growing up.

    Download

    Brothers Osborne (carving pumpkins) OC: …or something. :25
    “With our dad every year, we would go looking for pumpkins, and we would all get our own pumpkin to carve, and he would buy the biggest pumpkin that they had. It was huge. I mean, it was way too big for any one person, but he would love carving. He’s kind of an artsy guy. He was a great drawer and stuff, and he would carve the most terrifying, vicious looking, scary pumpkin you’d ever seen in your life, and it would be massive. It would be like on a 50-pound pumpkin or something.”

    Audio / Canaan Smith says his Halloweens of today have changed dramatically since he was a child.

    Download

    Canaan Smith (Halloween) OC: …cornfields. :37
    “I grew up in a Christian family. We went to a private Christian school for a while, so they didn’t allow us to celebrate Halloween like I do now. We did what was called a Hallelujah Party instead, and you still dress up and still get all the candy, but  you go to the high school gym. You play games, you just do, like cornhole and the dunking booth and all kinds of stuff and win prizes, but it was nothing ever scary. I think they had like rules about what outfits you could and couldn’t wear. But now I just love freaking myself out and going to, I love going to haunted houses and haunted cornfields.”

    Audio / Darius Rucker loves Halloween, especially because it’s his kids’ favorite holiday.

    David Nail (favorite part of Halloween) OC: …it better. :14

    “My favorite thing about Halloween was just the excitement about picking out your costume and talking to your friends and fighting over if you’re going to be this or if they stole the idea from you and if you can do the idea better.”

    Audio / Dierks Bentley talks about the Halloweens of his childhood.

    Download

    Dierks Bentley (Halloween) OC: … …around home. [laughs]  :23
    “Oh, when I was a kid, I was all into fireworks. Growing up in Arizona, we couldn’t get ’em, so we’d have ’em shipped in illegally. I still remember the name of the guy we’d call. His name was Joe, and he’d bring in, ship ’em in a package with no writing on ’em. We were all about M-80s in the mailboxes and bottle rocket wars. To me, as a kid, Halloween was fireworks, was blowing up stuff around home. [laughs]”

    Audio / Easton Corbin says one of his favorite costumes as a kid was made by his grandmother.

    Download

    Easton Corbin (Halloween) OC: …pretty warm. :26

    “My grandma made a werewolf outfit for me, and I wore that one year. She got this fake hair and glued it to sweatpants and a sweatshirt. That was a hot outfit. I mean, it got pretty warm.”

    Audio / Eric Church recalls his favorite Halloween costume.

    Download

    Eric Church (Halloween) OC: …Franklin Street. 1:18
    “My favorite Halloween costume really came, I remember when I got a little older my first year of college, there’s this thing they do every year in Chapel Hill, North Carolina – Halloween on Franklin Street. We drove down from Boone, North Carolina. I had a bunch of friends that went to University of North Carolina, and we didn’t have costumes and didn’t realize until we were on the way that we had to have costumes. So, we stopped at a costume place in Greensboro, North Carolina. It’s Halloween, so there’s a run on everything and couldn’t find anything. And we end up getting sent around, driving  around town. We end up finding this hole in the wall place, but they had the full costume, Sesame Street outfits. The real deal. The real ones [with] feathers and fur. We were Elmo, Cookie Monster and I was Big Bird, and the Big Bird was the actual Big Bird. It’s about 7-foot-4, and yiou looked out of the body and then you had these straps that went on since the head was a lot higher. There’s a lot of beer involved in Franklin Street, so we get down there and as the night went on, my straps broke, so the head would pivot. And so, I would be walking one way and the head would be facing the other, and it just became this funny…I didn’t know the head was on backwards. I had no idea. I see out of the body, so I’m just kinda walking around and people were talking to my ass-end. [laughs] The whole time peiople’d come up and start talking and go, ‘Hey, turn around.’ And I’d turn around, and they’d go, ‘No turn around.’ It was a mess. That year, there was no other Big Bird on Franklin Street.”

    Audio / Jon Pardi talks about his favorite Halloween costumes as a child.

    Jon Pardi (Halloween) 1 OC: …the Superman. :15
    “Man, I went through phases of costumes – the Superman costume, then it was a ninja, then I was a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle one year. I remember rockin’ the Superman.”

    Audio / Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley reveals one costume he’s always wanted to wear on Halloween.

    Download

    Lady A (Charles costume) OC: …an apple. :19
    CHARLES: “I want to be a banana. I think there’s something so funny and understated about a banana, especially when you’re 6’6” and like your little head’s popping through and you’re a banana.” DAVE: “Do they make ‘em your size?” CHARLES: “I’ve been known to sew a thing or two.” HILLARY: “That’s really random.” CHARLES: “I know. I’ve always wanted to dress up like something, just kind of funny like a banana or an apple.”

    Audio / Lady Antebellum’s Dave Haywood recalls one of his most embarrassing Halloween costumes.

    Download

    Lady A (Dave Haywood costume memory) OC: …50 feet. :20
    “I was a die (1/2 of a pair of dice) for Halloween. I had a big cardboard box that I had painted white and had the polka dots and stuff. And I remember I was walking up this hill to go to this hill and literally fell back down the entire hill [laughter], rolling in this giant cardboard box that I couldn’t do anything about, because I rolled down about 50-feet.” 

    Audio / Luke Bryan says you can tell a lot about your neighbors from what kind of Halloween candy they hand out.

    Download

    Luke Bryan (Halloween) OC: …your teeth. :21
    “You can find out a lot about your neighbors by what kind of candy they put out. So, well, like full bars of Snickers bars, that’s what, and Reese’s cups, [but] the old chocolate popcorn ball of stuff, that’s no good either, like Dots – you get Dots one time of year and they pull your teeth.”

  • DAVID NAIL IS BEGINNING TO HIT THE AIRWAVES WITH HIS LATEST SINGLE, ‘GOOD AT TONIGHT.’

    David Nail has released his latest single, “Good at Tonight,” from his new album, Fighter. The track was written by TJ and John Osborne (aka Brothers Osborne), as well as Barry Dean and Troy Verges, and David didn’t realize the guys were actually pitching him the song. When he did, he enlisted Brothers Osborne to sing background vocals.

    “‘Good at Tonight’ was a song that I heard the demo and I was actually kind of mad because I just assumed that they were…sending me the song because we’d been on the road with Brothers Osborne and they were just saying, ‘Hey! Here’s another Brothers Osborne song,’” says David. “When I realized that they were pitching me the song, I immediately texted John [Osborne] and was like, ‘Hey — are you sure you’re not gonna record this song, ‘cause I don’t want to…fall in love with it and then record it and then you decide six months from now that you love it and you want to record it, and then I have to take it off the record, ‘cause you win.’ And they were like, ‘Naw man. If you love it, man, do it.’ And so I said, ‘I’m gonna do it, but there’s one stipulation — you have to sing on it.’”

    David will launch his Fighter Tour September 7th in Madison, Wisconsin.

    Audio / David Nail says at first he didn’t realize Brothers Osborne were actually pitching him the song “Good at Tonight,” and when he did, he told John and TJ that if he did record it, they would have to sing on it.”

  • BROTHERS OSBORNE ANNOUNCED THEIR FIRST HEADLINING TOUR, KICKING OFF NEXT MONTH.

    Bro O Tour 2016

    Brothers Osborne announces today its first headlining THE DIRT RICH TOUR launching this fall.  The GRAMMY-nominated duo kicks off the tour in Rosemont, IL on September 22nd and will hit almost 30 additional markets including New York, Los Angeles, Dallas and Vancouver. Fans can purchase tickets beginning this Friday, August 12 at dirtrichtour.brothersosborne.com.

    Known for their “distinctive sound combining classic country and hints of soul” (The Washington Post), Brothers Osborne has earned high praise for their dynamic live show while previously touring with the likes of Eric Church, Little Big Town and Miranda Lambert. Rolling Stone exclaims “The Bros come guns blazing, a guaranteed show-stopper” while The Boston Globe commends the band for “winning listeners over with its spirited live performances.” AXS adds, “the pair acted like old pros as they effortlessly showcased their solid harmonies and impressive instrumentation.”

    On THE DIRT RICH TOUR, fans can expect to hear favorites from Brothers Osborne’s highly-acclaimed debut album Pawn Shop including the Gold-Certified, GRAMMY-nominated No.1 hit “Stay A Little Longer,” their current Top 30 single “21 Summer,” “Rum” and more.

    “‘Dirt Rich’ is a song on the record that makes a statement about who we are and where we come from,” says John. “We felt it was an appropriate title for the tour because it really defines who we are.””
    TJ adds, “We have been fortunate to be a part of some really great tours but this one is especially exciting because we’ve been building towards this for a while. We can’t wait to perform more of our material in an intimate setting with the fans out there. It’s going to be a blast.”

    Brothers Osborne’s rural blue-collar upbringing infiltrates the music they make as a twang-and-crunch duo that blends equal parts country and rock into one of the freshest, most identifiable sounds to come out of Nashville in recent years. As The Village Voice states, “the duo marries their grittier sound with a more accessible, catchy melody that has taken off with country radio and critics alike.”

    Joining the Maryland natives for select dates is new group LANco, comprised of five best friends Brandon Lancaster, Tripp Howell, Eric Steedly, Jared Hampton and Chandler Baldwin. LANco recently impacted country radio with their debut single “Love Live Tonight” which is featured on their four-song, self-titled EP produced by Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Little Big Town). Just wrapping up an extensive festival appearance schedule this spring and summer, the five man band has previously toured with Dwight Yoakam, The Band Perry, Eli Young Band and more.

    In addition, British-born singer/songwriter Lucie Silvas will join Brothers Osborne for the remaining tour dates. Silvas has sold over a million albums in Europe and toured with acts such as Little Big Town, Elton John, Chris Stapleton, James Bay, Macy Gray and Jamiroquai. She recently released the critically- acclaimed album, Letters to Ghosts, on her own imprint label through Caroline Records. Lucie co-wrote and co-produced the entire album.

  • BROTHERS OSBORNE RELEASE THE VIDEO FOR ’21 SUMMER.’

    Brothers Osborne debut their music video for the breezy “21 Summer” with VEVO today, watch HERE. John and TJ Osborne partnered with up-and-coming director Justin Clough for the video that captures a unique perspective on young love and consequential heartbreak.

    “‘21 Summer’ is one of those songs that a lot of people can relate to,” says TJ. “There are moments where so many things change in your life and I think one of the biggest is getting your heart broken for the first time.” “The concept of the video is just one of a million stories,” notes John. “Everyone’s ’21 Summer’ is going to be a little different but with this video we wanted to do something distinctive by taking a very particular story and applying it to the song’s lyrics.”

    The compelling piece documents a young boy who falls in love with a girl against his best interests. Through the boy’s journey, the video focuses on the free-spirited and untamed feelings that come with new love as well as the consequent struggles. As the main character begins to discover more about the girl and her background, he ultimately finds himself in despair highlighting the reflective and nostalgic qualities of the song.

    The singer/songwriter siblings co-wrote “21 Summer” which is featured on their debut album Pawn Shop and continues to climb the country airplay charts as well as gain praise from industry critics. Billboard notes the tune is “fuzzy, ethereal and mysterious, a sound so hauntingly unique” while Rolling Stone claims, “it sounds like something only the Maryland natives could cook up.” Wide Open Country adds, “the duo manages to keep the instrumentation fresh in a way that few modern country songs can.”

    Brothers Osborne recently made their Grand Ole Opry Debut and are currently on the road as part of Miranda Lambert’s Keeper Of The Flame Tour. Upcoming stops include Los Angeles, CA and Irvine, CA.

    Brothers Osborne (21 Summer video) 1 OC: (TJ) …and honest. :53
    JOHN: “We wanted to take a very particular story that’s quite left of center and apply it to the lyrics of ’21 Summer.’ And the fact that a young boy ends up with a girl that’s far more experienced than him and leads a darker life than him and they have something that actually shows him how to grow up and be a man, you know, and what it’s like to deal with heartache and deal with frustration and something seemingly catastrophic then turns into a very important part of your life.” TJ: “We wanted a storyline that was equally, when you saw it, I think you can have your own relatable experience that would I think probably initially, but then it really was thinking of how do we make a storyline that when you watch it, it really does make you really feel that heartbreak, not only for you, but for that person in the video experiencing that same type of thing. So, [we’re] just really trying to evoke that emotion and get it out and make it feel real and honest.”
