Brothers Osborne Release New Tune Featuring Lee Ann Womack [Listen]
Just before the release of their debut full length record, the Brothers Osborne have unveiled a brand new tune titled "Loving Me Back," which features bluegrass-country icon Lee Ann Womack on background vocals.
The low and slow ballad is featured on Pawn Shop, due out Jan. 15.
“Loving Me Back” is a drawling tribute with a stripped-down feel, featuring only a jangling acoustic guitar and a few sparse notes from an electric on the introductory verse and chorus. Womack’s vocals sweep in at the start of the chorus, which at first listen sounds like it may be about a significant other, but turns out to be about the thrill of performing music. “I finally found something worth loving that’s loving me back,” the two vocalists sing in perfect harmony. Smoking and drinking will let him down, the brother sings, but music actually returns the favor.
Fans can get an instant download of “Loving Me Back,” as well as the duo's most recent single, “Stay a Little Longer,” "Rum" and the title track when they pre-order the record.
"Stay a Little Longer" is Brothers Osborne's most successful single to date, having reached No. 3 on the Billboard U.S. Country Airplay chart and No. 5 on the U.S. Country Singles chart, making their first full-length record a highly anticipated release. The artists say the album will be a reflection of their earlier years growing up in a rural, working-class environment.
“Our upbringing certainly influenced the theme of this record,” John Osborne says. “It’s who you’re with and who you are that makes you happy. For us, as long as you’re able to enjoy yourself with family and friends you’re really living the good life.”
Their blended country-rock style is unique, a quality which caught Eric Church’s ear.
"My favorite thing about Brothers Osborne is that they don’t sound like anyone else. They are singularly distinctive," Church explains.
Brothers Osborne are on the road through the end of January with Jon Pardi’s All Time High Tour.
