There’s a reason T.J. and John Osborne of the Brothers Osborne are the reigning ACM and CMA Vocal Duo of the Year. They know how to put on a show. And that’s exactly what the Bros did at the Cannery Ballroom on Tuesday night (June 6) as they headlined the 2017 Nash Country Kick-Off Party, which was sponsored by Nash FM 103.3, Roper, Coca-Cola, Walmart, Sprint, Popchips and George Dickel.

But before T.J. and John started kicking, 2016 Nash Next champion Todd O’Neill had the honor of officially kicking off the night’s festivities, covering Bob Seger’s “Night Moves” and performing his current single, “Love Again,” among others.

Chuck Wicks, who also emceed the event, took the stage next and belted out a few of his crowd-pleasers, including “Stealing Cinderella” and “Whole Damn Thing,” before trio Runaway June—Naomi Cook, Hannah Mulholland and Jennifer Wayne—heated up the venue with “Wild West” and “Lipstick.”

The Brothers brought it home from there. In addition to playing a number of selections from their catalog, including “21 Summer,” “Stay a Little Longer” and their current single, “It Ain’t My Fault,” T.J. and John sampled a couple of new songs from their upcoming record, including a tune they co-wrote with Travis Meadows, which you can hear below.

All proceeds from the Nash Country Kick-Off Party benefit Musicians on Call, an organization that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
