Brothers Osborne’s TJ and John Osborne are kicking off their first headlining tour in the UK tonight (Friday, May 4th) in Dublin. Their shows continue in Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol and London before wrapping up on May 13th in Glasgow. The duo has become one of the UK’s favorite country acts to see live, and the guys couldn’t be more thrilled to head back overseas. TJ tells us: “We’re excited to get over for our first headline tour in the UK. We’ve been over there several times, and we’ve really been itching at getting back over there, and the fans, man, the fans, the only thing I can imagine what it was like was playing music in the United States in the ‘70s. They don’t really, they’re kind of just listening to music they think is good. They don’t really care what you call it, if it’s country, if it’s rock or it’s blues. They just like it or don’t, and they will show up if they think it’s authentic and love it. We can’t wait to go back.”
Once John and TJ return to the States they only have a couple of days at home before they head out on tour with Dierks Bentley on his Mountain High tour, kicking off May 18th in Columbia, Maryland.
The reigning ACM and CMA Vocal Duo of the Year are making their way up the country charts with “Shoot Me Straight,” from their new sophomore album, Port Saint Joe.
