GRAMMY Award-winning country duo Brothers Osborne will be honored at the upcoming Country Cares Seminar with the 2023 Angels Among Us Award.
Each year a country music artist is given the Angels Among Us Award as a result of their devotion an outstanding commitment to the children and families of St Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Brothers Osborne, made up of siblings T.J. and John Osborne have been selected as this year’s recipients for their dedication to the St. Jude mission throughout their career.
The artists join a star-studded list of past winners including Randy Owen, Scotty McCreery, Florida Georgia Line, Lady A, Jake Owen, Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, Lon Helton and Bill Mayne.
“What an amazing honor to receive the Angels Among Us Award from St. Jude,” said John Osborne. “We constantly find inspiration when spending time with the patients and families of St. Jude. Together with other artists and country radio listeners, we can make a difference in helping ensure no family receives a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food, allowing the focus to be on helping their child live. It’s an incredible mission, and we are grateful to be in a place to support such an amazing cause.”
The chart-topping duo first toured the St. Jude campus in 2014, just two years before releasing their first album. Since then, they have continued to participate in the #ThisShirtSavesLives campaign, spend time with St. Jude patients, call in and attend radio events, provide auction items, and play at benefit concerts.
They will be presented with the award at Country Cares for St. Jude Kids®, an annual gathering of music artists and industry professionals who come together to learn how to help raise funds and continue to spread awareness for St. Jude. Randy Owen, lead vocalist to legendary country band, Alabama, first co-founded Country Cares over 30 years ago and in 2021, his vision helped to raise nearly $50 million for St. Jude.
Country Cares for St. Jude Kids® stands as one of the most successful music fundraising events in the United States, boasting involvement from nearly 200 radio and music partners. With the help of these partners, more than $45 million annually for St. Jude to assist with a multi-trillion-dollar, multi-year problem like cancer as well as other life-threatening diseases.
This year’s seminar is scheduled to take place from Oct. 12 to Oct. 14 on the St. Jude campus in Memphis, TN.
Prior to making their way to this event, Brothers Osborne will unveil their self-titled album on Sept. 15 via EMI Records Nashville. In anticipation of the soon-to-be-released collection, the duo dropped three band new tracks: “Nobody’s Nobody,” “Might As Well Be Me,” and “Rollercoaster (Forever And A Day).”
This marks the first taste of new music from siblings John and TJ Osborne since the 2022 release of the deluxe edition of their GRAMMY-nominated album, Skeletons.
“We’ve always had a lot of mystery intentionally around the things we have done, but with this album, we decided to be all in. And doing that reminded me of what it was like when I first started playing music, when it was an outlet for my angst or just a way to have fun,” TJ Osborne said in a release.
“Since our last record, we’ve been very forthcoming with who we are,” John Osborne added. “By acknowledging TJ’s personal life and my mental health struggles, we are more ourselves creatively and publicly than we’ve ever been.”
The reigning CMA and ACM Duo of the Year winners are responsible for penning all 11 tracks of their fourth studio album, including the chart-climbing single “Nobody’s Nobody.” They have since shared a further glimpse into the Mike Elizondo-produced project through songs like “Goodbye’s Kickin’ In” and “Sun Ain’t Even Gone Down Yet.”
Additionally, Brothers Osborne also announced additional tour dates this fall as part of their album release concert series. They have scheduled a lineup of shows in New York City, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., and Nashville throughout the month of October.
“These four shows will be very special, and all will be different, showcasing music from our new album, and of course some of your old favorites”, the brothers shared in a statement.
These shows will also feature special guest, Fancy Hagood.
They are also slated to appear at a few more festivals including Jazz Aspen Snowmass and Suwannee River Jam.
Next up, Brothers Osborne will perform at the Amphitheater at Las Colonias Park in Grand Junction, CO on September 1.
