About Brothers Osborne
Two sons from a working class family, John and TJ Osborne grew up in a small, Maryland water town. They spent most nights not in front of the television, but writing and playing songs for friends and family in their father’s shed. John (guitar) moved to Nashville first to play in other bands and two years later, TJ (vocals/guitar) joined him. It was then they formed Brothers Osborne and in April 2011 they signed with Warner Chappell/King Pen Music for publishing followed by a deal with Capitol Records a year later. Their blue-collar rural Maryland upbringing still informs the music they make as a twang-and-crunch duo that blends equal parts country and rock into one of the freshest, most identifiable sounds to come out of Nashville in recent years. Their latest single “Rum” was named one of the top country songs of 2014 by Billboard as well as Rolling Stone and Nashville Lifestyles recently named them one of the Top 25 Artists to Watch in 2015. They are currently in the studio finishing their debut album set to release in 2015.
About A Thousand Horses
A Thousand Horses is a fresh fusion of classic sounds – a hybrid of Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Allman Brothers, Black Crowes and Exile on Main Street-era Rolling Stones, wrapped up in a modern-country context. The band’s Republic Nashville album, Southernality, is as wild and free and powerful as the name A Thousand Horses implies. This is the result of years of a road-doggin’ pursuit, determination and an against-the-odds struggle that found its rewards by bringing great music to the people. Whether it’s the Stonesy swagger of the opening “First Time,” the heart-felt country of “Tennessee Whiskey” or the thumping celebration, “Trailer Trashed,” the band has delivered an album that reflects the rebellion, attitude, and heart that both the youth and working men and women of America live every day.
