With booming baritone and heavy guitar riffs, the Brothers Osborne have cemented their place in country music's rich tradition of duos that are as wildly talented as they are quirky. Over the course of two albums, the Deale, Md., natives -- and, yes, real-life brothers -- have proven that they are as good at playing to the mainstream as they are at writing and recording top-quality, hard country tunes.
The Boot's list of the Top 5 Brothers Osborne Songs (so far) ranges from country chart hits such as "Stay A Little Longer" to the swampy, story-heavy "Pawn Shop." Read on to see if your favorite made the list.
"Pawn Shop" From 'Pawn Shop' (2016)
The Brothers Osborne have a knack for storytelling, and this trashy, swampy tune is proof. "It don't matter if the goods are hot / If they're yours or not," goes the chorus. "Buy everything you want, sell everything you've got."
"Weed, Whiskey and Willie" From 'Port Saint Joe' (2018)
An ode to the only things in life that anyone can truly trust, "Weed, Whiskey and Willie" finds the Brothers Osborne paying tribute to the healing power of cannabis, brown liquor and Willie Nelson. This bluesy, soul-drenched tune is a standout on their sophomore album, Port Saint Joe.
"Stay a Little Longer" From 'Pawn Shop' (2016)
The Brothers' 2015 breakout hit, "Stay a little Longer" was written by John Osborne, TJ Osborne and Nashville hitmaker Shane McAnally. The hard-rocking country tune also earned the Osbornes a Grammys nomination for Best Country Duo / Group Performance, and has been been certified gold.
"Loving Me Back" (feat. Lee Ann Womack)From 'Pawn Shop' (2016)
This song, which features a stunning vocal cameo from Womack, is a showcase of TJ Osborne's rich baritone. The harmonies soar on the road-weary love song, and an electric guitar solo towards the end from John Osborne adds a little bit of the band's signature sound.
"It Ain't My Fault" From 'Pawn Shop' (2016)
Arguably the Brothers' rowdiest tune to date, "It Ain't My Fault" pairs one hell of a music video with a throbbing bass line and classic country cheatin' lyrics. The raucous video follows the brothers and a group of men in masks modeled to look like the country's last four presidents as they go on a crime spree.
