Brothers Osborne Plan Their Future by Looking to the Musical Past

Appear on CMT Hot 20 Countdown From New Orleans on Saturday (Jan. 14)

The CMA’s reigning duo of the year and new Grammy nominees Brothers Osborne deserve more trophies for being two of the biggest music nerds on Music Row.

On an all-new CMT Hot 20 Countdown airing Saturday (Jan. 14), Katie Cook is in New Orleans with TJ and John Osborne, and their priority No. 1 after the interview involves finding a female street clarinetist who plays regularly in the French Quarter. But there was just one problem — they can’t remember her name.

“I’m gonna find her,” John promised. “She’s one of the most soulful musicians I’ve ever heard in my life. She’s literally in the middle of the street with a basket in front of her playing for money. That’s performance at its rawest. And she’s so genuine and real. There’s a lot to learn from people like that.”
