• CHRISTMAS 2016: Brothers Osborne

    Brothers Osborne are back home in Delaware for the holidays, and while they’re enjoying the down time with family, they also love the sights and sounds of Christmas.

    “It stays dark so you have a lot of Christmas lights. I just love Christmas lights – they put you in such an amazing mood,” says John Osborne. “Just the sounds, like all the Christmas music and even shopping, which is quite possibly one of the most hectic things to do during the holidays. Even if we have all our shopping done, we’ll still go to the mall just because it’s so alive and vibrant and the colors and the music and the lights. I just love it. It’s a bit sensory overload, but I kinda dig that.”

    John and TJ earned a nomination at the 59th annual GRAMMY awards with “Best Country Duo/Group Performance” for their song, “21 Summer.” This is their second GRAMMY nomination as they were nominated last year with their No. 1 hit “Stay a Little Longer.”

    “I love the overall feel and look at that time of year, because it’s starting to get really cold then and everything’s coming to a halt. It stays dark so you have a lot of Christmas lights. I just love Christmas lights – they put you in such an amazing mood. Just the sounds, like all the Christmas music and even shopping, which is quite possibly one of the most hectic things to do during the holidays.

  • BROTHERS OSBORNE EXPLAIN ‘ONE OF THE MOST SURREAL MOMENTS OF THEIR CAREER’…PLAYING ATOP THEIR TOUR BUS.

    As we mentioned before, Brothers Osborne are showing us exactly why they were named CMA Vocal Duo of the Year and why their motto is “the show must go on.” For the second time in two weeks, the ceiling of a venue at one of their shows caved in, forcing them to cut the show short.

    First on November 27th in Boise, Idaho, big pieces of the ceiling fell to the stage while they were playing. That show was cut short due to safety concerns. Then on Saturday night (December 10th), TJ and John Osborne’s show in Hanford, California was canceled because the ceiling collapsed right before John’s wife, the lovely and talented Lucie Silvas was to perform, so the guys moved the party outdoors in the rain…on the roof of their bus on the street in front of the theater. Armed with a PA system, a couple of acoustic guitars and a small drum kit, the duo performed for about 30 minutes, running through songs from their debut album, Pawn Shop.

    The guys, who are about to hit the airwaves with their new song “It Ain’t My Fault,” called the impromptu show “one of the most memorable moments” of their career.

    John and TJ felt they needed to make sure they took care of their fans who had already shown up to the show, even though it will be rescheduled at a later date.

    “We didn’t want to leave all those people who had already shown up high and dry, so we thought, ‘What can we do to make this thing really cool for them?’ And our bass player jokingly said, ‘What if we just set up on the roof and played there?’ And then TJ and I looked at each other and we were like, ‘Dude that is the greatest idea I’ve ever heard!’ And we told our tour manager and our production manager, and they both thought we could make this happen,” says John Osborne. “Sure enough, 15 minutes later we had a PA set up on the roof, we had microphones, guitars, some lights, some rugs and it was wild man. We played for about 7 or 800 people. And it was one of the most surreal moments of our lives.”

    Brothers O continue their Dirt Rich Tour are set to perform in Bakersfield, California at Buck Owens’ Crystal Palace on Tuesday (December 13th).

    The guys are up for a Grammy. They’re nominated in the category of Best Country Duo/Group Performance for “21 Summer.” The 59th Annual Grammy Awards will be broadcast live from the Staples Center in L.A. February 12th at 8pm ET on CBS.

    Audio / John Osborne explains how he and TJ ended up playing on top of their tour bus after they had to cancel their show due to the ceiling caving in…for the second time.

    Brothers Osborne (playing bus show) OC: …and easier. 1:01
    “It was pretty crazy. About 10 minutes before Lucie Silvas, who’s been opening shows for us, went on stage, a giant piece of plaster fell from the ceiling. It actually hit the stool where she would’ve been sitting. We knew then and there we had to cancel the show, but we didn’t want to leave all those people who had already shown up high and dry, so we thought, ‘What can we do to make this thing really cool for them?’ And our bass player jokingly said, ‘What if we just set up on the roof and played there?’ And then TJ and I looked at each other and we were like, ‘Dude that is the greatest idea I’ve ever heard!’ And we told our tour manager and our production manager, and they both thought we could make this happen. Sure enough, 15 minutes later we had a PA set up on the roof, we had microphones, guitars, some lights, some rugs and it was wild man. We played for about 7 or 800 people. And it was one of the most surreal moments of our lives, you know? We might just do the rest of the tour that way ‘cause it was much cheaper and easier.” [laughs]

    Brothers Osborne performed in Boise, Idaho on Sunday night (November 27th) and brought the house down…literally.

  • THANKSGIVING 2016

    The Thanksgiving holiday tradition traces its origins to a 1621 celebration at Plymouth, in the state that’s now known as Massachusetts. The 1621 Plymouth feast and thanksgiving was prompted by a good harvest. While initially, the Plymouth colony did not have enough food to feed half of the 102 colonists, the Wampanoag Native Americans helped the Pilgrims by providing seeds and teaching them to fish. The practice of holding an annual harvest festival like this did not become a regular affair in New England until the late 1660s. People now celebrate the holiday by giving thanks for their blessings over the past year, as well as feasting on turkey and other festive goodies.

    Thanksgiving Day is Thursday, November 24th, and most people will be enjoying time with their friends and families, including some of your favorite country stars, such as Alan Jackson, Brothers Osborne, Canaan Smith, Clare Dunn, Darius Rucker, David Nail, Dierks Bentley, Easton Corbin, Eric Church, Eric Paslay, Josh Turner, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Mickey Guyton, Sam Hunt and more. They share their thoughts, memories and favorite Thanksgiving dishes.

    Brothers Osborne (misfits Thanksgiving) OC: …going home. :45
    “What we’ve done the past several years is because it’s so hard to go home, we would have what we call the Misfit Thanksgiving dinner, and all the people in Nashville who aren’t able to go home to their families, we would just invite them over to our house and have a big potluck style Thanksgiving dinner. We’ll take like a couple of tables and throw them together and throw some sheets on it just to make it look nice. It’s a very redneck display of like tableware, because all the plates don’t match and the forks and knives don’t match, but we don’t care. People will bring wine, and at the end of the day, we’ll probably have 12-15 people all sitting at dinner together that weren’t able to go home with their families, and just enjoy it with friends. It’s been really fun. Definitely a lot less stress than going home.”

It was probably the cheapest macaroni and cheese that money can buy, but for some reason it was always extra special, and she would also add extra cheese to it for me. My cousin Matt and I would have many, many fights about who would get the last spoonful.”

We cook it traditionally, but when we’re in, a couple of Thanksgivings ago, we were here in Nashville, we did the whole fry the turkey up, and it was great. It just tasted so good; all those juices get locked in there, and I love that too. You really can’t, to me, cook a turkey wrong. I’m gonna eat it any way, and I have over the years. Trust me, I’ve played a lot of county and state fairs, where I’ve seen gigantic turkey legs, you know, I’ve had the flat meat. I’ve done turkey every way you could do it. I’m pretty good any way you want to cook it up, but you’ve got to have a turkey for Thanksgiving.”

But absolutely during that time, being able to spend that time with family and your loved ones. We used to always go to my grandma’s, that’s Christmas and Thanksgiving. We’d go there for the big meal. I don’t get to go back much. A lot of times I’ll stay up [in Nashville] for Thanksgiving, and then go down during Christmas, but we’d always go to my grandma’s.”

It’s like everybody has their own twist on it, but they’re all good, but I always loved it when my mama made ‘em. I’m learning as I get older, making deviled eggs is no easy task. It’s more complicated than it looks, and so that’s probably why I never made ‘em myself.” [laughs]

I love being around the table with my family and talking and laughing and cooking and eating…” JIMI: “And eating and eating and eating and eating…” PHILLIP: “The laughter around the eating, the good cheer, the celebration, the music…” JIMI: “The eating, going taking a nap, then coming back and eating.” KIMBERLY: “Go to bed with a full belly, take a nap, and then get up and eat.”

    Mickey Guyton (Thanksgiving traditions) OC: …Thanksgiving traditions. :17
    “One of my Thanksgiving traditions is playing charades after Thanksgiving dinner. I’m not the most competitive person in the world, but as soon as you put some Charades in the picture, I am crazy, and you will definitely want to be on my team if we’re playing Charades. I’m just saying. So, that’s one of my favorite Thanksgiving traditions.”

    Mickey Guyton (favorite Thanksgiving dish) OC: …both so much! :39
    “My favorite Thanksgiving dish that has to, has to, has to be at Thanksgiving dinner is dessert. Dessert is my favorite Thanksgiving dish. I mean, it doesn’t matter what it is, as long as it’s sweet. My mom actually makes an Italian cream cake that’s absolutely awesome. It’s homemade, and the entire family, that’s the first thing to go at Thanksgiving dinner. And my Grandma D, she makes a pecan pie that is awesome. She taught me how to make them when I was little, and I just love them, and that’s the other thing that I look forward to at Thanksgiving dinner, and I love them both so much!”

    Sam Hunt (Thanksgiving eats) OC: …glass of milk. :34
    “When I pile my plate up, it’s mostly turkey and then I’ll put a little dressing on the side, and I’ll usually go ahead and grab my dessert on the first run [laughs] and have it ready before it all disappears. Those are the really the three things. It’s strange, but since I was very young, I’ve always loved drinking milk, my brothers too, we drank lots of milk. My cousins, who grew up down the road, they always looked at us funny when we wanted to drink milk with our Thanksgiving meal. They would have coke or whatever else. So, I still get turkey, dressing, a piece of pecan pie and a big ole glass of milk.”
