Recently profiled by Rolling Stone, Brothers Osborne is a country jam band that makes you want to get out in the sunshine and have a good time. Originating out of Deale, Maryland, Brothers Osborne is composed of John and T.J. Osborne. They have recently found success with their releases of their singles Let's Go There and Rum in 2013 and 2014, respectively. In an interview with Rolling Stone this past July, John Osborne had a wonderful quote about country music:
"People think that county music is only in the south, but if you travel, you realize it's everywhere."
My favorite songs include Rum, Love the Lonely Out of You, and Stay A Little Longer.
Of the aforementioned Rum, Rolling Stone had the following the description, which I believe is applicable to the overall vibe and attitude that this band takes to heart:
"Indeed, the tune isn't about tipping back fancy paper-umbrella-adorned cocktails in the land of Jimmy Buffett — it's about making the best of what you've got, whether it's a summer house in the Hamptons or just a rusty truck bed and a hose. Or, in this case, some shellfish, slide guitar and spiced rum from plastic cups. Because Maryland is for lovers — and Brothers."
