At the same time, it's hard to look at the Osbornes' long list of musical milestones — including six Grammy nominations, four CMA Awards, five ACM trophies, and more than a half-dozen hits — and imagine anyone turning up their noses at a sound that's taken the siblings from the blue-collar beach bars of their Maryland hometown to some of the biggest stages across the world. Skeletons is a celebration of that sound — a melodic, muscular album that builds upon the hooks of the band's career-launching debut, Pawn Shop , as well as the forward-thinking adventurousness of their sophomore release, Port Saint Joe. More than anything, it's a sound rooted in the excitement and electricity of Brothers Osborne's concerts, packed with songs that could all serve as crowd-rousing encores. Recorded with multi-platinum producer Jay Joyce during a time of global turbulence, Skeletons is a celebratory album for a world in sore need of uplifting music. From the ZZ Top-worthy strut of "All Night" to the classic country storytelling of "Old Man's Boots," the Osbornes aren't shy about wearing their influences on their sleeves. Even so, they've never sounded more self-assuredly original than they do here, confidently rolling a diverse range of inspiration into their own singular sound.
With booming baritone and heavy guitar riffs, the Brothers Osborne have cemented their place in country music's rich tradition of duos that are as wildly talented as they are quirky. Over the course of two albums, the Deale, Md. The Brothers Osborne have a knack for storytelling, and this trashy, swampy tune is proof. An ode to the only things in life that anyone can truly trust, "Weed, Whiskey and Willie" finds the Brothers Osborne paying tribute to the healing power of cannabis, brown liquor and Willie Nelson. This song, which features a stunning vocal cameo from Womack , is a showcase of TJ Osborne's rich baritone. The harmonies soar on the road-weary love song, and an electric guitar solo towards the end from John Osborne adds a little bit of the band's signature sound. Arguably the Brothers' rowdiest tune to date, "It Ain't My Fault" pairs one hell of a music video with a throbbing bass line and classic country cheatin' lyrics. The raucous video follows the brothers and a group of men in masks modeled to look like the country's last four presidents as they go on a crime spree.

And as an outsider it will be obvious to you what's going on, but here's an awesome breakdown from a couple that flipped from "we go to church every week - we will write a Mormon blog" to resigning over the new policy banning children of gays all over the NY Times this month and something that is upsetting many staunch church members a few days ago. I've been working like crazy myself, so it is easy for me to understand time issues involved in drs' training. I hope you can make this work out. Forget what anyone else says or expects of you.
