Pawn Shop CD review - Pawn Shop
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.
