Growing up the sons of a working-class mother and father, T.J. and John Osborne learned at an early age how to make do with what they had. Their blue-collar rural Maryland upbringing was far from the one other kids were experiencing in the nearby affluent suburbs of the nation's capital. Whether they were lighting their house with candles when the electricity was turned off or using a garden hose for summertime fun, T.J. and John were frequently making something from nothing. That same sensibility informs the music they make as Brothers Osborne, a twang-and-crunch duo that blends equal parts country and rock into one of the freshest, most identifiable sounds to come out of Nashville in recent years. "A lot of the coolest music comes when you don't have anything else to do and you have random objects lying around," says John, at 31 the older of the two. "You pick them up and just bang on them to make a noise that makes sense. Writing a song is similar. You're plucking something out of thin air. All music is literally making something out of nothing."
