CMA Vocal Duo of the Year Nominated for Best Country Duo/Group Performance at 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – EMI Nashville’s Brothers Osborne releases “Shoot Me Straight” as the first track off their highly-anticipated sophomore album today, listen HERE. The two-time CMA “Vocal Duo of the Year” again teamed up with producer Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Little Big Town) for the new album set to release later this year. Recorded at Jay’s house in a remote part of the Florida coast, Brothers Osborne again delivers a tune highlighting why “they won over Nashville critics with a distinctive sound combining classic country and hints of soul, with songs centered on John’s impressive guitar skills and TJ’s rich baritone” (The Washington Post).
“Brothers Osborne has the coolest, sexiest song of the year.”
– Phathead, JVC Broadcasting
“In typical Brothers’ fashion, it stands out for its combination of gritty guitar and vocals and that ever-present bass drum beat that hits you right in the gut. It answers the demand for an up-tempo winter title from a duo with a proven fan base.”
– JC Coffey, PD WTHT
John and TJ Osborne cowrote the tune with Lee Thomas Miller. To view in-studio video footage of an edited version of “Shoot Me Straight” click HERE.

All three tracks are featured on their critically-acclaimed debut album Pawn Shop which was recently certified Gold by the RIAA.
