Following the released of their award-winning video for “It Ain’t My Fault,” John and TJ Osborne of Brothers Osborne are back with more hijinks in their new clip for “Shoot Me Straight.”
Once again utilizing the directorial skills of Wes Edwards and Ryan Silver, the mockumentary-styled video for “Shoot Me Straight” features the Brothers rejecting a number of pitches, before the co-directors take matters into their own hands with a blow gun and some chloroform.
“This idea genuinely spawned out of us not being able to come to agreement on what we wanted the video to be about,” says TJ. “After weeks of back-and-forth emails, conference calls and treatment pitches, we came to the conclusion that we needed to make a video about, well, not making a video.”
“It turned out to be so damn fun,” adds John.
“Shoot Me Straight,” which was penned by John, TJ and Lee Thomas Miller, is the lead single from Brothers Osborne’s 2018 album, Port Saint Joe.
The Brothers are currently on the road as part of Dierks Bentley’s Mountain High Tour, and it just so happens that Dierks makes a cameo in the new video.
