Brothers Osborne aren’t your traditional country duo. They hail from Maryland and aren’t afraid to advertise it as seen in the music video for their debut single “Rum” which was shot on the shore of the Chesapeake Bay. For their biggest fans “Rum” served as the song of the summer, but for most country fans they’re largely unfamiliar with the track. They’ll look to expand their fan base in a big way this summer when they head out with Darius Rucker on the Southern Style Tour. Sure, “Rum” will probably get the biggest ovation, but it’s their new single “Stay a Little Longer” that serves as their best song to date.
It’s a big weekend for country music in the Northeast. Garth Brooks brings the “Garth Brooks Experience” to the TD Garden for an unprecedented six shows in four days. He’ll play two shows a night on Friday and Saturday and when it’s all said and done he’ll have performed for over 75,000 people. But it’s not just Garth who’s in the region this weekend. Alan Jackson brings his Keepin’ It Country Tour to the MassMutual Center in Springfield, MA on Friday night before heading up to Portland, ME on Saturday night. He has Jon Pardi and the Grammy nominated Brandy Clark along with him for both shows. If classic country isn’t your thing Friday night you can head on down to the MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods and check out Chris Young and Lee Brice with special guests Brothers Osborne. Limited tickets are still available for all shows.
Note: Trisha Yearwood is also on the bill for all six Garth Brooks shows.
This weekend is highlighted by Hunter Hayes Tattoo (Your Name) Tour.
