The REAL Story Behind Brothers Osborne '21 Summer'
One of our favorite new artists has got to be the Brothers Osborne, a duo of real brothers who got their start in Maryland before hitting the Nashville scene.
Their debut album, “Pawn Shop,” has some awesome eclectic country tunes with a few interesting stories behind them. One particular fan favorite, “21 Summer,” has actually been recorded several different times, in a variety of styles, before its appearance on their new album.
“It’s one of the older songs we’ve had,” explains T. J. Osborne. His brother, John, adds that former versions of the song were louder with a harder edge. Eventually, the brothers decided that they wanted “21 Summer” to be a softer and more ambient sound. “It would be really cool to put something on… sit on your back porch, hang out, and just have a conversation.”
Inspired by the lighter California style of country music, the brothers decided that the popular version of '21 Summer” is just right to give the album that perfect balance that includes both soft and harder country selections that makes them so popular with their fans.
