If you were a living, breathing country fan in 1999, you probably heard the Dixie Chicks’ controversial single “Goodbye Earl” more than a few times. During a recent concert in Kansas City, Mo., rising duo Brothers Osborne put their own spin on the hit song.
T.J. and John Osborne regularly throw covers into their set list, including takes on Merle Haggard and Chris Stapleton tunes. This time around, they brought a little bit of rock and roll to the normally acoustic-driven track.
Although the cover is laid-back and fun, it still shows off their ability to make a well-known song their own. That’s no easy feat, even for the most seasoned of performers. You can tell from the cheers and claps from the crowd that the cover was a big hit with their fans. Don’t be surprised if you see this song pop up during their upcoming live sets.
Thanks to the breakthrough success of their singles “Stay a Little Longer” and “21 Summer,” the Osbornes are preparing for their first national headlining tour. As for the Dixie Chicks, you can also see them on their DCX tour through the middle of Oct.
