Brothers Osborne scored four nominations in three categories at this year’s ACM Awards, including a nod for Duo of the Year, which they’ve won three consecutive times.

“One of the things I love about the country music genre is that it’s a family,” says John Osborne. “We’re all really, really close. We’re all a bunch of misfits thrown together. We’re all a little different, but we love one another and respect one another, and I’m just honored for the both of us to be a part of this awesome family.”

That duo category nominates them alongside Dan + Shay, Maddie & Tae, Florida Georgia Line and Locash.

TJ agrees. “I will say to add on that, it sounds cliché to say it’s an honor to be nominated, but it really is.”

Brothers Osborne are also nominated for Music Event of the Year for “Burning Man” with Dierks Bentley. Additionally, John and TJ are nominated twice in the Video of the Year category for songs “Shoot Me Straight” and “Burning Man.”

The 54th Academy of Country Music Awards will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas April 7th at 8pm ET on CBS.
