Brothers Osborne Tip Their Hat To 'Port Saint Joe'

Brothers Osborne are getting closer to the release of their sophomore album, called Port Saint Joe, on April 20th. Brothers John and TJ went down to Florida and holed up in a beach house to record songs for the collection, and as they tell us, they were so affected by their time down there making music that they decided to title the album after the area. (John) "Our next record, Port Saint Joe, is a record that we recorded in Port Saint Joe, Florida. We just shacked up in a beach house for two weeks and we just played music that felt good to us. We recorded them all live. We left all of the mistakes in there. We left it nice and raw. We tracked 10 songs. (TJ) Yeah, and so once we were done recording it there, we’re still affected by the location of where it was that we decided to go ahead and title the record after it and call it Port Saint Joe."

Port Saint Joe features Brothers Osborne's current single, "Shoot Me Straight."

While in Las Vegas for the 53rd Annual ACM Awards next month, the duo will perform at a special FRYEDAYS event as part of their ongoing partnership with lifestyle brand Frye. The event will be held downtown at the Zappos Headquarters on Friday, April 13th at 4 p.m. PT. Fans can enter for a chance to win tickets by going to brothersosborne.com. Fans at home will be able to watch a live stream of the event at Zappos.com/brothersosborne and thefryecompany.com

Dan + Shay's 'Tequila' Makes Spotify's All-Genre Hits Playlist

Dan + Shay's latest single, "Tequila," becomes one of three country songs on Spotify’s Today’s Top Hits playlist. Released in January, "Tequila" tallies over 31 million on-demand streams, making it one of the Top 20 most streamed country songs of 2018, and is quickly rising through the Top 40 at country radio.

Dan Smyers co-wrote "Tequila," which has earned a Top Five spot in Australia as well as the iTunes Country Charts in the U.S., U.K. and Ireland upon release. Dan + Shay performed the tune last week at CMC Rocks to packed crowds, marking their first time in Australia.

Dan said, "We’ll never forget our first visit to Australia, especially hearing 20,000 country music fans sing ‘Tequila’ back to us. To top it all off, Spotify added the song to Today’s Top Hits! It’s always exciting when new listeners discover our music."

The song is a highlight in Dan + Shay's live show as it's a favorite of the duo's to strip down and perform acoustically. Dan tells us: "We play a lot of acoustic shows, stripped down shows. You know, we love playing with the band and touring with all the guys but it was one of those songs that anytime there was a piano . . . We were just in Europe and I have this memory of there was this old kind of piano. It was slightly out of tune but it had some character and I was walking down the hallway to the venue after soundcheck and I heard Shay like sitting down at the piano but I heard him singing it just one vocal and the piano and I was like, 'Wow! That's special,' and when a song can resonate like that in its rawest form I think that says something, but it's that thing where it doesn't necessarily need all the tricks and gimmicks. Those are fun. It's awesome. It makes it sound cool on the radio but when you can strip it down and just play it on an acoustic guitar or piano and it still translates there's something special to that."

"Tequila" is the first single from Dan + Shay’s upcoming third studio album, due out later this year.

The duo will join Rascal Flatts this summer on their Back To Us tour.
