As Brothers Osborne‘s “Nobody’s Nobody” continues to ascend the country charts, the duo’s John Osborne is sharing how the song came about in an unexpected way.
“It was kind of a tough day writing. We couldn’t quite really nail anything. We went outside, to you know, to have a smoke, a coffee, just kind our clear heads,” recalls John. “Came back in and Mike [Elizondo] was playing what you hear at the very beginning, which is, I think, a Wurlitzer or a Fender Rhodes with a delay on it. Like, that [was] amazing.”
That’s when their current single serendipitously came to life.
“Kendell [Marvel], the co-writer, said, “You know, that reminds me of a title called ‘Nobody’s Nobody.’ And we’re like, ‘Then why the hell didn’t you say that earlier? We’ve been here for 2 hours trying to this other song.’ And it came together,” John shares.
“Nobody’s Nobody” is currently #25 and rising on the country charts. The song is off Brothers Osborne’s latest self-titled album, out now.
