About Brett Eldredge
With two consecutive No. 1 hits “Beat of the Music” and “Don’t Ya,” Atlantic recording artist Brett Eldredge is thrilled to join Little Big Town on THE PAIN KILLER TOUR in support of his debut album Bring You Back. Celebrating his album release with performances on Today, Live with Kelly & Michael, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Late Night with Seth Myers, Eldredge also earned New Artist nominations for the CMA and ACM Awards, a CMT Award nod for “Breakthrough Video of the Year,” a performance on Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and rave reviews from noted tastemakers. Eldredge was recently named by People Country Magazine and Us Weekly as one country music’s sexiest men. People reported “Patience, passion, personality, a whole lot of talent and an insane work ethic are already in Brett’s favor to position him as a star in country music.”
About Brothers Osborne
Brothers Osborne hail from Deale, Maryland; a water town on the Chesapeake Bay. Upon moving to Nashville, Brothers Osborne began writing and playing every open-mic in town that they could. In 2012 the brothers signed to EMI Nashville (part of the Universal Music Group Nashville). Brothers Osborne mark the first duo signed to the EMI Nashville imprint. Their current single at country radio is the feel-good song “Rum,” a song that the New York Times says “…is elegantly structured, sinewy country passing as back-porch folk.” In addition, Rolling Stone also listed Brothers Osborne as one of 10 Artists You Need To Know. Furthermore Country Weekly listed Brothers Osborne as one of their “ONES TO WATCH IN 2014″ and Paste Magazine listed the brothers on their “Best Of What’s Next” list.
