Brothers Osborne announce headlining tour
Monday, August 8, 2016
– Brothers Osborne announces today its first headlining tour, The Dirt Rich Tour, starting this fall.
The duo of T.J. and John Osborne, who released their debut full-length CD in January, kick off the tour in the Chicago area on Sept. 22, hitting about 30 markets. Fans can purchase tickets beginning this Friday, August 12.
The duo had a number one hit with "Stay A Little Longer." Their current single is "21 Summer."
"'Dirt Rich' is a song on the record that makes a statement about who we are and where we come from," said John. "We felt it was an appropriate title for the tour because it really defines who we are."
TJ said, "We have been fortunate to be a part of some really great tours, but this one is especially exciting because we've been building towards this for a while. We can't wait to perform more of our material in an intimate setting with the fans out there. It's going to be a blast."
LANco and British singer Lucie Silvas will open shows. LANco is comprised of five best friends: Brandon Lancaster, Tripp Howell, Eric Steedly, Jared Hampton and Chandler Baldwin. LANco recently impacted country radio with their debut single "Love Live Tonight," which is on their four-song, self-titled EP produced by Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Little Big Town).
Silvas has toured with Little Big Town, Elton John, Chris Stapleton, James Bay, Macy Gray and Jamiroquai. She recently released "Letters to Ghosts," on her own imprint label through Caroline Records. She co-wrote and co-produced the album.

LANCO's "Greatest Love Story" is a radio single saturated in undeniable warmth and sweetness. But then, the attitude in "We Do" reeks of Florida Georgia Line and the chorus to "Singin' at The Stars" also brings country music's most annoying duo to mind. LANCO is a new act, and the jury's still on just which direction this five-piece will go. Will this group follow Midland as another truly legitimate country music collective, or could they follow »»»
These Brothers Osborne - TJ and John - are not be confused with those Osborne Brothers - Bobby and Sonny. While the former have a long long way to go beyond they reach the stature of one of the leading bluegrass duos in the genre, the newbies show they are onto something - in the country sector.
Brothers Osborne have Outlaw Country and swampy ("Dirt Rich," "Pawn Shop") vibes going on filling their southern rock-veering debut, a follow-up on a September 2014 EP (two of the EP »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»

Concert Review: Turner bring it on (to his second) home
Frank Turner opined during the first of four sold-out nights of the Lost Evenings Festival that Boston was his home away from his British home. The likable, accessible singer hit the sweet spot not only with his perspective, but his performance as well demonstrated why.
Turner made a major change in this year's festival. For the first time, he... »»»
