Brothers Osborne will receive the top honor of the night at the upcoming ASCAP Awards.
On November 11, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers will present the three-time CMA Vocal Duo of the Year with the ASCAP Vanguard Award at the 57th Annual ASCAP Country Music Awards, held in downtown Nashville.
“John and TJ Osborne successfully honor the past, and the future, with their passionate country-rock sound,” ASCAP Chairman of the Board and President Paul Williams said. “Together, with John’s masterful guitar picking and TJ’s pitch-perfect baritone, they offer a fresh take on the modern country duo. We are thrilled to honor them with the ASCAP Vanguard Award.”
Previous recipients of the Vanguard Award, which honors artists “whose innovative work is helping to shape the future of music,” include Chris Stapleton and Kelsea Ballerini.
Two days after the ASCAP Awards, Brothers Osborne will hit the stage with Brooks & Dunn at The 53rd Annual CMA Awards to perform “Hard Workin’ Man.”
The reigning CMA Vocal Duo of the Year is nominated for a number of CMA Awards, including Single of the Year and Music Video of the Year for their collaboration with Dierks Bentley on “Burning Man,” as well as Musical Event of the Year with Maren Morris for “All My Favorite People.”
The duo recently released Live at the Ryman, which was recorded during a three-night, sold-out run at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium. The collection contains 12 tracks including their hits “Stay a Little Longer” and “It Ain’t My Fault” and “I Don’t Remember Me (Before You).”
