Brothers Osborne Share ‘Weed, Whiskey and Willie’ … Just in Time for 4/20 [LISTEN]
Brothers Osborne have shared the lyric video for their new song "Weed, Whiskey And Willie," and readers can press play above to watch. The song appears on the duo's upcoming sophomore album, Port Saint Joe.
"Weed, Whiskey and Willie" is an ode to three things the Osbornes take solace in when things get tough: "I've got bottles and bongs stacked to the ceilin' / I get stoned for survival, it helps with the healin' / And when it all goes to hell, the only thing I believe in / Is weed, whiskey and Willie." The song's slow tempo, prominent guitar and rich vocals enhance the listener's mental image of TJ and John Osborne sitting back, lighting up and sipping whiskey to take a breather from life's everyday stresses.
Port Saint Joe is the follow-up to the real-life brothers' debut project, Pawn Shop; it takes its name from the coastal Florida town in which they recorded the project. "Weed, Whiskey and Willie," written by the Osbornes and Laura Veltz, is Track No. 4 on the record.
"We shacked up for two weeks to make an unabashed record that would reflect who we are in every way," says TJ Osborne in a press release, "and in the process, we had the most enjoyable and memorable recording experience of our lives.”
This summer, Brothers Osborne will join up with Dierks Bentley for Bentley's 2018 Mountain High Tour. The trek is scheduled to kick off May 17; tickets and additional information can be found on Brothers Osborne's website.
Port Saint Joe is due out on Friday (April 20). "Weed, Whiskey and Willie" is available for purchase now.
