We all know who the King of Country Music is, right? (Answer: George Strait) And there are a few Queens of Country Music (Reba, Dolly, Loretta, Tammy). We have an almost never-ending list of princes and princesses: Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, Kelsea Ballerini and more. Heck, we even have a couple of court jesters with Blake Shelton and Brett Eldredge. And while the job doesn’t include a crown and scepter, country music now has a pair of big brothers as well in Brothers Osborne.
And just like big brothers are often inclined to do, they’re taking out internet trolls who are picking on their siblings.
Just after the CMA announced this year’s award show nominees, including their Duo of the Year contenders, brothers T.J. and John stepped up to shut down some unnecessary comments about one of their fellow nominees, Maddie & Tae. Now, Maren Morris has been the victim of some online body-shamers, and the boys simply aren’t having it.
As we recently reported, Maren clapped back at people who were criticizing her midriff-baring outfits on social media, writing, “Honestly, I’m over the slut-shaming that goes on here. I’m a self-sufficient woman who loves her body. Get over it.”
Never ones to mince words, Brothers Osborne commented on Maren’s sassy comeback and said of those criticizing her, “This is why we should be required to take an asshole test before being allowed access to the internet. What is wrong with these people?”
