Brothers Osborne Wouldn’t Mind Seeing Someone New Win ACM Vocal Duo of the Year
Sibling duo Brothers Osborne are among the many country stars headed to Las Vegas, Nev., for the 2018 ACM Awards on Sunday (April 15). In 2017, TJ and John Osborne walked away with the titles of New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year and Vocal Duo of the Year, and this year, the brothers are once again on the nominations list in the latter category, as well in Video of the Year, for "It Ain't My Fault."
However, this year's competition for the Vocal Duo title promises to be fierce: Also in the running are Florida Georgia Line, Dan + Shay, LoCash and Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, and although Brothers Osborne are excited to be nominated, they have been quick to point out that winning the trophy 2017 in no way makes them a shoo-in for the title in 2018. Ahead of the 2018 ACMs, The Boot caught up with the Osbornes to discuss their competition, and find out who the country stars would vote for in their category if they couldn't vote for themselves.
"Oh, man, that's a hard question!" John responded when asked who his pick would be. "I would want to vote for Tim and Faith, because they're iconic, right? They're such an important part of our genre. But I would say that if I had to vote for someone else, I would vote for Dan + Shay, because they've earned it. They've had a lot of success with radio, and a lot of success with crossing over, and they deserve it as much as anyone."
"Tim and Faith are a juggernaut," TJ acknowledges. "But, I think it would be cool to see someone who hasn't won an award yet win one. Dan + Shay and LoCash have both been working hard for a long time, and I'd like to see one of them win if possible, if I couldn't vote for us."
The 2018 ACM Awards are set to take place in Las Vegas, Nev., on April 15, and air live on CBS beginning at 8PM ET. The ceremony will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
