To think that one of Nashville’s finest country duo and CMA Award winners at that were going to be playing in an intimate venue such as Y Plas in Cardiff, Wales – as if they were going to be the support act?
If anyone saw Brothers Osborne at C2C Festival earlier this year then they will know that they blew the roof off with their electrifying and rockin’ set which left the O2 Arena shaking from all the energy.
Brothers John and TJ Osborne are just about the hottest thing in country right now. Throw away all your misconceptions of yee ha’s, line dancin’, cowboy hats, boots and truckin’ because there are some new sheriffs in town and they are the coolest kids goin’.
A crowded venue, a University venue at that but not a quiet audience member around. This Sunday night was buzzin’. A short 45 minute set was not enough, we desired more, we needed it, we are still craving it but thank god they mentioned they are returning next year.
Starting with Down Home I almost forgot they were a support act. These boys know how to energise a crowd, the atmosphere was something else. John on the guitar, one word, insane. TJ, now with a beard like his brother made them look like they will soon be mistaken for ZZ top.
Rum, one of my favourite tracks was a show stoppin’ live track with so much crowd interaction – I just felt so happy to see them being so loved. Never have I been to a gig where the crowd are there for the support act as much as the main act.
Stay A Little Longer had me melting over TJ’s baritone vocal. Ending with It Ain’t My Fault made me all kinds of happy but gutted that the set was at an end.
We need a full show man, two hours minimum when you return. Awesome, mind blowin’, what the hell?…..no words, no words.
We may talk funny in Wales but hey…That Ain’t My Fault
