Singer-songwriter siblings John and T.J. Osborne, who perform as Brothers Osborne, made a big splash in the country world with the 2016 release of their debut album “Pawn Shop.”

The album cycle netted the brothers back-to-back wins for Vocal Duo of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards and Country Music Awards, beating out acts like Florida Georgia Line, an ACM award and CMA award for Music Video of the Year for “It Ain’t My Fault,” and three Grammy nominations.

Two years later, in April, the pair is back at it with “Port Saint Joe.”

“ ‘Port Saint Joe’ is a sonic representation of who we’ve become not only as a band but as people,” John Osborne said in a statement on the band’s website. “Every show we’ve ever played together is on this record. Every song we’ve ever written and every mile we’ve ever ridden has led to the making of this record. Imperfections and all.”

“Shoot Me Straight,” the first single from “Port Saint Joe,” peaked in the top 30 of the Billboard U.S. Country Airplay and U.S. Hot Country Songs charts.

Brothers Osborne released its second single, “I Don’t Remember Me (Before You),” earlier this week.
