Brothers Osborne’s fourth album is self-titled and will be out on Friday (9/14). TJ Osborne told us about the album cover, and the list of thank yous which they initially tried to do with Chat GBT.

Regarding the album cover, he said, “In the photo, our manager, who took the photo, wanted to have us very close, not wearing black, so it’s not about the clothes, not about the scenery, it’s just simply us. This is us; we’re Brothers Osborne, so we wanted to self-title the whole thing.”

This time, the album is dedicated to the brothers’ parents. The dedication reads: “We would like to dedicate this album to our parents, who have been our unwavering support. Despite humble beginnings, you have provided us with everything we could ever ask for. Above all, you have given us the strength to pursue our dreams and stay true to ourselves in a world that often values conformity. You have blazed the trail that we so proudly tread upon.”

TJ explained to us, “When it came time to do the thank yous, there are so many people involved, and the list goes on and on. We just felt like this time; we wanted to highlight specifically who really has more to do with this than anything by a long shot. Instead of talking about everyone, let’s just thank the people that we think deserve the credit more than anyone, which is our parents.”

The dedication almost took another turn, as TJ shared, “Originally, John actually made a thank you letter that was written with Chat GPT, and we did it, and it was done kind of bombastically. But then we kind of felt like ten years from now, when this isn’t a thing that people are talking about as much, it would be super random out of context. What would have been funny now would certainly look like we’re egomaniacal lunatics later. So, we scratched it.”

John added, “Chat GPT is cocky as hell. It made us sound like we had such massive egos.”

Country Music's Five Creepiest Songs

  • 5 - "Ghost Riders in The Sky," by Johnny Cash

    A country classic by the Man In Black. “An old cowboy went riding out / One dark and windy day / Upon a ridge, he rested / As he went along his way / When all at once a mighty herd / Of red eyed cows he saw / Plowin’ through the ragged skies / And up the cloudy draw / Their brands were still on fire / And their hooves were made of steel / Their horns were black and shiny / And their hot breath he could feel.”

  • 4 - "Skeletons" by Brothers Osborne

    A fun and a creepy song about hiding who you are. This whole album,”Skeletons,” is just right for Halloween. The title song, “Skeletons,” plays with ominous music, and the lyric video features the duo as skeletons; they even bring out massive 14-foot skeletons on stage with them when they sing it live. “You got skeletons in your closet / It’s written all over your face / Every little lie stacked so high / Can’t keep your story straight / I don’t know oh oh / How they got there, it’s getting under my skin / You got skeletons in your closet / And I got bones to pick with them, oh.”

  • 3 -"You, Me & The River" by Chris Janson (With Eric Church)

    A murder song where Church’s character gets buried in the creepy as-hell music video. “Hey buddy, hey buddy, ain’t that Mississippi muddy / In this town, well, yeah, she takes what you give her / So tonight I lay me down to sleep / And pray my soul and my secret to keep / Between you, me and the river.”

  • 2 - "The Legend of Wooley Swamp," by The Charlie Daniels Band

    Another country classic that has played heavily at Halloween since its release in 1980. The song about an angry ghost. The lyrics of the song begin, “If you ever go back into Wooly Swamp son you better not go at night / There’s things out there in the middle of them woods / That’d make a strong man die from fright / There’s things that crawl and things that fly / And things that creep around on the ground / And they say the ghost of Lucias Clay gets up and it walks around.”

  • 1 - "Creepin'," Eric Church

    The title says it all about a love that will not go away. Even the melody is creepy. “You shot out of hell like a bullet from a gun, / A flip of a switch, A thief on the run, / And since the day you left me Baby, / I can feel the lonely, I can hear the crazy. / Just a Creepin’ / Creepin’ / Just a Creepin’ / Creepin.'”
