Brothers Osborne Love the Look and Feel of This Time of Year

The sights and sounds of Christmas are really amazing.

John Osborne of the Brothers Osborne would agree, “I love the overall feel and look at that time of year.”

A lot of people started decorating earlier than usual in 2020 just because of how putting up the Christmas decorations would make them feel. John shares that depending on where you live, the season change, along with the decorations, can also help in setting the Christmas mood, “It’s starting to get really cold then and everything’s coming to a halt. It stays dark so you have a lot of Christmas lights. I just love Christmas lights – they put you in such an amazing mood. Just the sounds, like all the Christmas music.”

While 2020 is a Christmas unlike one that we’ve seen before, John says that normally, all the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping puts him in the spirit, “Even shopping, which is quite possibly one of the most hectic things to do during the holidays. Even if we have all our shopping done, we’ll still go to the mall just because it’s so alive and vibrant and the colors and the music and the lights. I just love it. It’s a bit sensory overload, but I kinda dig that.”

Since it’s gets dark out earlier, that means people can leave their lights on…”All Night”…

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
