Brothers Osborne and Ashley McBryde Joining Eric Church in Tuscaloosa
Tuscaloosa Amphitheater announced today that Brothers Osborne and newcomer Ashley McBryde will join Eric Church in Tuscaloosa this September.
The show, on September 15th, was announced to the public this past Monday with no opener but we now know which friends Eric Church decided to bring to town with him.
Brothers T.J. and John Osborne also known as Brothers Osborne grew up in the small fishing town of Deale, Maryland but now call Nashville home. They quickly shot onto the scene with their major label debut, Pawn Shop which earned them radio airplay thanks to songs like 'Rum,' '21 Summer' and 'Stay a Little Longer.'
A quote from the bio on their website says,
The Osborne siblings strummed their first chords during those jam sessions. From the very start, TJ Osborne was the brother with the voice. He sang in a thick, low baritone, crooning like Johnny Cash long before he was even old enough to drive. Older brother John, on the other hand, was the family’s guitar shredder, his fingers capable of down-home bluegrass licks, arena-worthy rock riffs, country twang, and everything in between. Combined, the two Osbornes could play everything from traditional country music to rock & roll, creating a broad, full-bodied sound that would eventually fill the 11 songs on their major-label debut, Pawn Shop.
Arkansas native, Ashley McBryde will open the show. She's been known to hold her audience captive with her bourbon-soaked sense of humor and commands the room with her music.
In early 2016, McBryde self released her EP, Jalopies and Expensive Guitars, which became a Billboard “Heatseeker” and topped out at number 12 on the iTunes charts. She also cut her teeth throughout on the road last year opening for Willie Nelson, Hank Williams Jr., Chris Stapleton, and Marty Stuart among others.
