Brothers Osborne Talk About Drinking and Dieting in the New Year

Brothers Osborne Talk About Drinking and Dieting in the New Year

The Brothers Osborne find New Year traditions, and habits kind of amusing.

Sure, there will be a lot of people raising glasses, and probably consuming more than a few adult beverages this week when we ring in the New Year…but that’s also how they might have started the year too.

John Osborne says, “I think it’s kind of funny how we spend literally the last moment and the very first moment of every year being extremely intoxicated.”

He goes on to explain, “You don’t want to wait until like 12:30 to get your buzz on. You’ve got to do it before midnight, and then once midnight happens, you’re like, ‘Omigod! Now it’s time to celebrate even more.'” Which leads John to the revelation, “Debauchery is the literally bookending your entire year.”

His brother TJ Osborne is also amused by some people’s logic when it comes to eating during the holiday season, and then their thoughts of being healthy a few weeks later. “I love how everyone starts the year off with diets and then we end the year with like excessive amounts of food. And then you get to the end of the year, you’re like, ‘Oh, I’m going to start a diet on the 1st, so I’m going to eat everything that’s in front of me.’ I love it.”

Brother John then voices the cold hard reality most of us face after making the resolution to be healthier, “Come February 1st, ‘what diet?'”

To send off 2020, and welcome 2021, lots of people will be celebrating “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.”
