“Original” Defining Bobby Osborne's Legacy

Bobby Osborne - OriginalNashville, TN -- At 85, bluegrass icon Bobby Osborne is having a career defining moment with his new album Original. A feature on Billboard.com, a #1 debut at bluegrass radio (a very rare occurrance on this chart), premiering his first ever official music video via The Tennnessean, and having a co-write on the title track to Alison Krauss' #1 album WINDY CITY, seem to signifiy a powerful aligning of the fates and a return to form for this trailblazing artist.

This premiere video featurs Rob Ickes, Claire Lynch, Sierra Hull, Trey Hensley, Stuart Duncan, producer/banjoist Compass co-founder Alison Brown, and the man himself. Alison put together this cast of bluegrass music's finest players and singers for the Original project, all of whom were all excited and honored to be recording with a living legend. The album's 10 tracks feature interesting and unexpected musical pairings.

Bobby Osborne Releases Single “They Call The Wind Maria”

Bobby Osborne - OriginalNashville, TN — Bobby Osborne is one of bluegrass music's true innovators. His trailblazing work with The Osborne Brothers, who charted 13 Billboard Country top 100 hits in the 1960s and 70s, took the sounds of the banjo, mandolin and Bobby's one of a kind tenor voice to a mainstream radio audience – one of only a handful of acts in the history of bluegrass ever to have achieved cross over success. Blurring the boundaries between bluegrass and country music, The Osborne Brothers were the connective tissue between the first generation creators of bluegrass and the subsequent generation of newgrass musicians who, in turn, paved the way for the diversity and innovation that characterize contemporary bluegrass.
