With John Osborne on guitar and TJ Osborne on lead vocals, the duo captivated the GRAMMYs audience inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena. 

The performance came hours after they emotionally accepted their GRAMMY Award during the GRAMMYs Premiere Ceremony.

Hours later, the duo remained shocked over their big win. 

“It’s hard to find the words to say about this,” they admitted on an Instagram post. “We won our first Grammy today… It took years of grinding and hard work. We have so many people to thank but if there are two people that deserve notoriety it’s our younger selves. Little TJ and John stuck it out as awkward teenagers and proved what they were certain would happened and what their older selves probably doubted.”

The brothers closed their heartfelt post by admitting, “We will never forget this day for as long as we live” before thanking everyone who has supported them along the way.
