This past weekend, EMI Nashville’s Brothers Osborne crossed a huge milestone off their career bucket list, headlining at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium for the first time. The reigning ACM and CMA Vocal Duo of the Year ended up selling out three shows in one week as part of their headlining world tour and continued to impress critics and fans alike with their dynamic live show. Rolling Stone praises, “a performance that emphasized their musical chops and improvisation country-rock that has made them consistent Award favorites.” To help celebrate the momentous occasion, the duo was surprised backstage with plaques for their Top 10 hit “It Ain’t My Fault” reaching Platinum Certification by the RIAA.
Throughout the three shows, the five-time GRAMMY nominees played hits such as “Stay A Little Longer” and “It Ain’t My Fault” in addition to fan favorites including “21 Summer” and “Pawn Shop”. Each night featured different special guests such as Dierks Bentley performing their No.1 hit “Burning Man,” Maren Morris singing “Greener Pastures,” which she co-wrote with the duo, as well as Lee Ann Womack for their duet “Loving Me Back.” Additional special guests included Dan Auerbach for a cover of Don Williams’ “Tulsa Time” and Lucie Silvas for a cover of her song “Everything Looks Beautiful.”
Brothers Osborne recently debuted the music video for their current single “I Don’t Remember Me (Before You),” watch HERE. The sentimental video centers around a professional bull rider who struggles to get his life back on track as he battles with substance abuse and includes a surprise ending that will tug at your heartstrings.
The Maryland Natives will continue on their headlining world tour with upcoming sold out shows in Washington DC, Milwaukee and St. Louis. Later this year, the singer/songwriters will join Chris Stapleton’s “All-American Road Show” tour.

Brothers Osborne (It Ain’t My Fault) OC: …I think. 1:04
“It’s really fun singing down there in that really low register and we kind of…once again we just wanted something that was a little more kind of gritty and kind of had some attitude to it. And it was kind of our thing where you kind of like, the whole song is just about clearly all of these things you are blaming on the other, but you are the person that is making this happen. You are the person who is to blame, but you’re just so hell bent on having a good time or going forward and not being boggled down by all of the things that would stop a normal person. You kind of just get in the surreal moment of denying any bit of blame. We wrote this with a great songwriter in town named Lee Miller, and it was actually his idea to have these kind of blaming things on each other and this back and forth. And when he started doing it I was like ‘Man, that’s really cool. I’ve never heard lyrics really delivered like that before.’ And we just started coming up with these really fun different things whether it’s blaming the ex for the drinking or the drinking for the ex or it’s just whatever order you want to put them in. It was a really, really fun different song, I think.”
