Brothers Osborne Launches “The Dirt Rich Tour”

They’ve shared the stage with country megastars such as Little Big Town and Miranda Lambert, and now they’re launching their own concert series, The Dirt Rich Tour. On the first day of Fall 2016, Grammy nominated Best Duo, Brothers Osborne, kicked off their first headlining tour at Joe’s Live in Rosemont, Illinois. On select dates of the tour, rising country artists LANco and Lucie Silvas will be joining them, however, they were not there for this specific show.

I would best describe the ambiance of this show as laid-back, burnt incense abundant, with a traditional country, meets southern rock feel. Early on, Brothers Osborne revealed that they didn’t have a production set tonight, so they used the only prop they had – an Indian statue that staked its ground on the far back side of the stage and blew out smoke. As the concert proceeded, it became relevant that contrary to some of the bigger names in country music right now, Brothers Osbourne is less concerned with the “oohs and ahs” generated from the production of the show, and more focused on the actual instruments and music they’re playing. One-half of the duo, T.J. Osborne, laughed and joked of their lackluster stage set, “but we actually play the guitars we’re holding, so…” With that said, the crowd did some hootin’ and hollerin’ and the show went on.

As this is their very first headlining tour, Brothers Osborne focused more on playing songs from their debut album, Pawn Shop (including the above clip of the song “Let Me Love The Lonely Out of You”), but they also perked up the crowd with a few classic covers that any country fan would know, such as Hank Williams’ hit, “Hey Good Lookin’.” An audience composed of fans solely there in support of your music is a perfect opportunity to play music that has yet to be recorded, and they took advantage of that situation last night to showcase a brand new track. Check them out here, playing a song they wrote about three of their favorite things.

Though the crowd seemed to know the majority of the songs from Pawn Shop, there was a larger magnitude of excitement every time one of their radio singles was played. “Rum” had everyone clapping along or pumping their fists, while their current reminiscent love single, “21 Summer,” was a bittersweet reminder of the end of summer and beginning of a hopeful new season. One thing I would have liked to see from Brothers Osborne was saving one of their singles to end the show’s encore with a powerful punch. Regardless, they left us all wishing that they could “Stay A Little Longer” as the night came to a close.
