Brothers Osborne Perform Tonight As Part Of All-Star Lineup On ABC’s Television Special “CMA Fest”

Reigning CMA and ACM Vocal Duo of the Year, Brothers Osborne will perform their latest single “Shoot Me Straight” on ABC’s television special of “CMA Fest” TONIGHT, August 8th at 8/7c.

The “rocking anthem” (Premier Guitar) continues to climb the country airplay charts, approaching the Top 25, with Rolling Stone noting it as “an epic whiskey-fueled rocker that barrels into hangover territory head on, no chaser.” “Shoot Me Straight” is featured on the duo’s critically-acclaimed sophomore album, Port Saint Joe, which has been hailed as “soulful, classic-rocking” by NPR and “absolutely superb” by the BBC.

Brothers Osborne also announces additional U.S. tour dates today, expanding their upcoming headlining world tour. In addition to these newly-announced US headlining dates, the Grammy nominated duo is already scheduled to return to Canada in October as well as headline their second U.K. tour this November. The Wild Feathers and Lucie Silvas will be joining on select dates. (See full dates below).

Receiving praise for their live show from both critics and fans alike, The New York Times exclaims, “the fans who’d shown up to hear bluesy improvisation gave the Osbornes a standing ovation” while The Boston Globe commends the band for “winning listeners over with its spirited live performances.” AXS adds, “the pair acted like old pros as they effortlessly showcased their solid harmonies and impressive instrumentation.” Fans can purchase tickets this Friday August 10, with the fan club pre-sale beginning August 7th. Fans can join The Family, the official fan club, to be eligible to participate in the pre-sale.

Brothers Osborne is currently on the road as part of Dierks Bentley’s “Mountain High Tour” and has previously toured with the likes of Chris Stapleton, Eric Church, and Little Big Town. On the Maryland native’s headlining world tour, fans can expect to hear the band’s three Grammy-nominated singles including No. 1 Platinum-Certified “Stay A Little Longer,” rowdy Top 10 hit “It Ain’t My Fault,” the reminiscent “21 Summer,”  in addition to songs from the new record such as “Pushing Up Daisies (Love Alive)” and “Weed, Whiskey And Willie.”
