The big year for Deale natives Brothers Osborne continues.
The country duo of TJ and John Osborne earned two nominations for this year’s Country Music Association Awards — vocal duo of the year and new artist of the year. The nominations were announced Wednesday on “Good Morning America.”
In January, Brothers Osborne released their debut album, “Pawn Shop.” It includes their biggest hit to date, “Stay a Little Longer.”
Nashville, the genre’s hub and where the brothers now live, has embraced the group. In April, they were nominated for vocal duo of the year and new vocal duo or group of the year at the Academy of Country Music Awards. (They lost to Florida Georgia Line and Old Dominion, respectively.)
“Stay a Little Longer” was nominated for best country duo/group performance at February’s Grammy Awards. (Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush” won.) Brothers Osborne also performed on national TV this year, including “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and the “Today” show.
Hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, the 50th CMA Awards take place 8 p.m. Nov. 2 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. ABC will air the ceremony live.
