Have a Laugh with Brothers Osborne in New Music Video


Earlier this week, CMA Vocal Duo of the Year, TJ and John Osborne of Brothers Osborne, combined their musical and comedic skills in their newly released music video for their single “Shoot Me Straight.” Check out the unique and hysterical video, directed by Wes Edwards and Ryan Silver below.

Pushing the envelope yet again, the musicians poke fun at the cliches in “Bro-Country,” music, such as scantily-clad girls in daisy dukes, as well as, jabbing at the current President’s military proposals. When asked by the press how they came up with the idea for the “Shoot Me Straight” video, the musicians shared, “This idea genuinely spawned out of us not being able to come to an agreement on what we wanted the video to be about.”

Against their will, the brothers are showcased in a series of questionable, but humorous circumstances geared towards epitomizing the music video cliches. The scenes show the singer/songwriter siblings being forced, under the influence, to act out music video ideas, suggested by the video’s directors. The brothers current tour mate, Dierks Bentley even makes a guest appearance in the video!

“Shoot Me Straight” is the first single from their sophomore album, Port Saint Joe. Brothers Osborne will continue touring with Dierks Bentley on the Mountain High Tour through October, stopping at New York City’s Iconic Madison Square Garden on September 8th. Find tickets for the NYC Show here.

The duo will move up to headlining status with their own multi-country tour, accompanied by, musicians, Lucie Silvas and The Wild Feathers. The headlining tour will get underway on August 26th in Charlottesville, Virginia. Find a full list of tour dates here.

New Year, New Music: Brothers Osborne & Devin Dawson, First Singles of 2018

New year, new music.

Brothers Osborne “Shoot Me Straight”

This month marks two years since Brothers Osborne released their debut LP, Pawn Shop.  After two Grammy nominations, the reigning CMA and ACM Vocal Duo of the Year are gearing up to release their sophomore project and fans were treated to the first single today.  Clocking in just under seven minutes long, “Shoot Me Straight” is everything the country genre needs to kick off the new year.  TJ’s husky baritone vocals singing about whiskey drinking and the subtle art of honesty along with John taking over with an electrifying guitar solo that takes you through until the end of the song, “Shoot Me Straight” will stimulate your senses and excite you for whats to come.  Check out our review from when the duo played The Paramount on Long Island just a few short months ago here.

Key Lyrics:

Make it burn the whole way down / Lay my six foot, four-inch ass out on the ground / Tomorrow I’ll have a hard hangover and one hell of a heartache / So pour it on like a shot of whiskey and shoot me straight / Don’t give me that salt shaker and lime / Don’t give me that comeback chaser this time / Don’t muddle it up, don’t water it down / Give me everything you got right here, right now,”

Devin Dawson “Symptoms”

Switching gears, Warner Music Nashville recording artist Devin Dawson released another track off of his forthcoming album Dark Horse, slated for release in two weeks (January 19th). “Symptoms” is a slow burn, just another example of how Dawson blends R&B and country to create his own personal brand. The groove runs off a list of evidence and warning signs of falling hard for someone. Dawson’s falsetto at the end of the track provides a whole new dynamic to the already sensual song. Check back for our First Impression of Dark Horse on January 19th and click here for our review from when Dawson played an intimate show at Rockwood Music Hall.

Key Lyrics:

“I’ve been craving more and more / Since I started losin’ sleep couldn’t catch a wink /  High fever in the sheets, knees getting weak / My heart was skipping beats, she was runnin’ deep / Like a toxin that’s all in my system / I’ve got symptoms”
