Will Brothers Osborne walk away winners Sunday night?
Brothers Osborne could walk away with their third consecutive Vocal Duo of the Year award at the ACM Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday. They also have three similar trophies from the CMA Awards. While the pat on the back feels great, John Osborne explained it’s more about getting a message of support from their peers in the industry. John said, “Winning awards, especially like that that’s voted on by your peers, it reminded us that we have the support of our community. You know, it’s easy to get wrapped up in your thing and stay in your bubble, and we work so hard. We spend a lot of time on the road, we spend a lot of time focusing on what we do that you don’t actually see the cumulative effects of all of the hard work you’re putting in, so when we do win it makes us feel great. It makes us feel a boost of confidence and it’s mostly the giant feeling of love we get from our community. It’s like, ‘Okay, well they’re rewarding us for us being ourselves and it’s okay for us to be ourselves,’ and we’ll just continue to do that.”
Brothers Osborne are also nominated for Video of the Year for both “Shoot Me Straight” and “Burning Man” with their friend, Dierks Bentley, as well as Music Event of the Year for “Burning Man.”
You can catch Brothers Osborne performing with Maren Morris live on the ACM Awards, airing on CBS beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
