Music has always been a family business for brothers T.J. Osborne (lead vocals, rhythm guitar) and John Osborne (lead guitar, background vocals), collectively known as the Brothers Osborne. "Naturally, John and I wanted to participate and play with the family because it was fun. And that was where we cut our teeth," reveals T.J. Osborne. Initially, they performed with their father as they helped him in his day job as a plumber. They also tried their to pursue separate – solo music careers, but when they got together again as a duo, the wheels of their music careers started turning, starting with getting signed with publishing contract with Warner-Chappell, and a record deal as well with EMI Nashville. From there, the sibling duo has been driving along the road of success. In 2014, their single "Rum," which received critical acclaim; followed by "Stay a Little Longer," which became a top five hit, which culminated to the release of their debut studio album titled 'Pawn Shop' in 2015.
The Brothers Osborne have pushed country and rock music boundaries towards their own direction. "We're not afraid to take risks and just be ourselves," says John. Spin writer Andrew Unterberger confirms this by saying, "John's guitar slides a Hattori Hanzō sharpness, while TJ’s vocals are wisely kept from going too thick with warbling vibrato, allowing them an understated vulnerability badly lacking in Nashville these days." Country Standard Time music critic Jeffrey B. Remz also noted the "sonorous, ultra-deep voice" favorably to Trace Adkins and noting the variety of guitar styles played by John as "sometimes steely, sometimes twangy, sometimes rocking".
