It only takes a couple of guitars for the Brothers Osborne to have a good time, even on a Texas street corner. While hanging out in the Dallas neighborhood of Deep Ellum, TJ and John stripped down their Pawn Shop hit “Down Home.”
The acoustic version of the song is completely bare bones and features their trademark soulful, gritty sound. Playing a song with just two guitars is something neither brother takes lightly.
“When you play acoustic, you can’t hide behind anything,” TJ tells Rolling Stone. “It’s really the thing that separates the men from the boys.”
Brothers Osborne also just kicked off their first ever national headlining trek. The Dirt Rich Tour features support from LANco and singer-songwriter Lucie Silvas, who also happens to be John Osborne’s wife. You can find a full list of upcoming tour dates and more ticketing information at their official website.
The brothers are also nominated for both Duo of the Year and New Artist of the Year at the 2016 CMA Awards. But regardless of how many awards the guys win or how many number one hits they record, they definitely plan to stay true to themselves.
