Dozens of country music artists are showing their support for Brothers Osborne’s T.J. Osborne after he came out as gay on Wednesday (Feb. 3). 

T.J. shared his truth in a powerful new interview with Time

“I’m very comfortable being gay,” he shared with the publication. “I find myself being guarded for not wanting to talk about something that I personally don’t have a problem with. That feels so strange.”

After the Time interview was published, T.J.’s peers took to social media to share their support for him.
