Brothers Osborne stopped to catch up with Billboard’s Taylor Weatherby backstage at the 2018 CMA Awards on Wednesday (Nov. 14), discussing their vocal duo of the year win.
When asked how it feels to win three years in a row, T.J. Osborne tells Billboard, “I'm just surprised, as I know John is, to have won this year, as we were the first and second year. This year…it was full of superstars, even the new artist category, and the same for the duo category. And I kind of almost had this weird sense of comfort sitting in my seat this afternoon just thinking, 'I'm not gonna win.'”
“It really is a category that could go to so many people,” he continues. “There's so many people in that category that had much success and they've worked really hard and they're really well liked in the industry. I think which only adds to the importance of this and it is not missed on us at all, the importance of it, and we are very, very grateful.”
