Brothers Osborne are no strangers to awards. However, this past Thursday (Oct. 12th) in Memphis, the duo accepted their biggest award to date. The brothers accepted the Angels Among Us Award at the 2023 Country Cares for St. Jude Kids Seminar.


"We've had a lot of achievements and awards and stuff, and this is by far one of the most important, that I'll always hold dear to my heart," the duo's John Osborne said to a crowd full of members of the country music community.


The Angels Among Us Award honored Brothers Osborne's career-long commitment to supporting the children of St. Jude and their mission. The duo joins a storied group of past winners including Randy Owen, Scotty McCreery, Florida Georgia Line, Lady A, Jake Owen, Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, Lon Helton and Bill Mayne. Since their first visit to the hospital campus in 2014, the duo have made it a priority to visit the hospital and participating in the annual #ThisShirtSavesLives campaign.

Walking the red carpet before the event, the duo chatted with ACN about why it is so important to use their platform for good. Why not St. Jude," John told ACN. "Why not be here? Why not help? Why not pitch in? When life is good to you, be good to others. St. Jude is one of the most selfless environments on the planet. They do so much great work. For us to play, in my opinion, a small role in that. We are offering some outreach and we're helping with the brand and we do shows for St. Jude. I still think our contribution is quite insignificant compared to what the families are doing and the children and researchers are doing. What the doctors are doing. We just feel great to be a little cog in this amazing machine."

"I always am very skeptical of places that raise money or charities," TJ chimed in. "I'm like, where is this money going? In this instance, the fact that it all goes to the families and to the children, it's just kind of a no-brainer to be a part of this. It's just way bigger than us. That's one of the things that's weird about accepting this award tonight is that this whole thing isn't about one person."


Country Cares for St. Jude Kids® is one of the most successful music fundraising events in the United States with nearly 200 radio and music partners.
