Brothers Osborne's T.J. Osborne Gets Love From Dan + Shay, Kacey Musgraves & More After Coming Out

After T.J. Osborne of country duo Brothers Osborne came out as gay in a new Time interview published Wednesday (Feb. 3), dozens of his country peers took to social media to celebrate his honesty.

"I’m very comfortable being gay," Osborne told Time. “I find myself being guarded for not wanting to talk about something that I personally don’t have a problem with. That feels so strange.”

Kacey Musgraves tweeted that Osborne is "one of my best friends and one of the bravest people I know," while Dierks Bentley shared a photo onstage with T.J. and the message "Love this guy right here ... Happy you are telling your story dude."

LeAnn Rimes, who has been part of the country world since her 1996 breakthrough at age 13, wrote, "TJ, I hope you feel so supported today. It’s a brave thing to be wholly you in a world and industry that would rather you hide pieces of you behind a mask."
