Brothers Osborne Say They Don't Mind If Their Political Music Video 'Pissed Some People Off' at the 2017 CMAs

Coming off Brothers Osborne's music video of the year win for "It Ain't My Fault" at the 2017 CMAs, T.J. and John Osborne spoke to Billboard's Kevan Kenney about the politically charged visual backstage at the award ceremony.

"We put out a video that was basically a political satire and pissed some people off but we thought it was funny and did it anyway," T.J. Osborne explained. 

When asked about the importance of speaking your mind in this day and age of music, John Osborne pointed out that it's not about today's age of music but something that should happen always.

"We're given an opportunity to speak for the people who don't have a voice," he said. "And a lot people will argue, 'Stick to music and stay out of politics,' but this is an amazing opportunity. We're lucky; we get to go to these award shows, play music and travel the country. Let's try to give back and help someone."
