Brothers Osborne just released a touching new song, “Younger Me”, written by TJ in response to the overwhelming support he received after sharing his personal story. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the track.
It’s a big week for Brothers Osborne and country music fans! The platinum-selling duo first made news yesterday with the announcement of their 2021 headlining tour, ‘We’re Not For Everyone Tour’. Support acts, Tenille Townes and Travis Denning will join the show, which kicks off on July 29th in Philadelphia, and makes their way to the New York Area on August 21st and October 28th. Additionally, today Brothers Osborne released a powerful new song, “Younger Me”.
Inspired by the overwhelming support that TJ Osborne received after sharing his personal story with his sexuality earlier this year, “Younger Me” is a special song created by the real-life brothers. A solo write by TJ, the song is an anthem for anyone who is struggling with their identity in any capacity. Although for TJ the song is about his coming out as a gay man, it is a track for anyone who has struggled with self-acceptance.
“Younger me // Made it harder than it had to be // Trying hard to dodge my destiny // Get the best of me // Younger me”
A truly poignant song, the lyric that states “always dreamed of kicking down the door // what were you waiting for,” is especially telling. Furthermore, the singers go on to thank their younger selves for getting them where they are today.
Brothers Osborne will be performing a special version of “Younger Me” on Sunday as part of Xfinity’s special performances for The ACM Awards.
This song is one for the history books and we are so proud to get to further share it!
