TJ and John Osborne of Brothers Osborne are giving fans a taste of their upcoming sophomore album with the release of a new single, “Shoot Me Straight,” which will be available for download and stream on Jan. 5.
The reigning CMA and ACM Duo of the Year says the song bridges the gap between their debut album, Pawn Shop, and their new project.
“We thought this lead single off of our new record would be a really great representation of just kind of what’s to come on this new record, but also was kind of a good little second story to ‘It Ain’t My Fault,’” says TJ. “The song really being about the double entendre of just the saying, ‘shoot me straight,’ ‘give it to me straight,’ but also make it burn like a shot of whiskey and shoot me straight. It’s one of the songs that kind of ties the last record into this one.”
