Kansas City, Mo. – Reigning Country Music Association Duo of the Year, Brothers Osborne, is set to headline Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City’s 2022 Kids Night Out event at the Overland Park Convention Center Saturday, May 21.
Presented by Summit Homes, the 2022 Kids Night Out event will raise funds to support 12 area Boys & Girls Clubs serving 1,000 youth each day in Metropolitan Kansas City.
“Our annual Kids Night Out event is known around the metro as one of the best charity events in the Greater Kansas City area and beyond because of the incredible entertainment we feature each year,” said Dr. Dred Scott, President and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City. “We’ve been hosting this phenomenal event for 26 years. Thanks to your support we’re able to do amazing things on your behalf for kids throughout Kansas City.”
The duo of TJ and John Osborne won their first career Grammy award on Sunday, April 3 in the Best Country Duo/Group Performance category for their introspective song “Younger Me,” written shortly after the duo’s singer TJ Osborne came out as a gay man. Brothers Osborne then closed the popular annual award ceremony and live broadcast with an inspiring rendition of their song “Dead Man’s Curve.”
The band recently released the deluxe edition of their Grammy-nominated album “Skeletons.” The critically acclaimed project includes the new tracks “Headstone,” “Midnight Rider’s Prayer,” and “Younger Me.”
Brothers Osborne also won “Duo of The Year” at the 57th Academy of Country Music Awards this year. This marks the sixth ACM award the brothers have won, and they have been nominated 11 times, with seven nominations in the duo category.
Named to multiple end-of-year “best of” lists, including the all-genre Rolling Stone Best Songs of the Year and Billboard’s 100 Best Songs of 2021, “Younger Me” also topped Billboard’s Best Country Songs of 2021 list.
Known for their boundary-breaking country songs, Brothers Osborne have always mixed the twang of southern music with the groove and guitar-driven swagger of rock & roll. This sound has taken the siblings from the blue-collar beach bars of their Maryland hometown to some of the biggest stages throughout the world.
Kids Night Out is one of Kansas City’s biggest fundraisers featuring a cocktail party, silent auction, dinner, live auction and a highlighted performance by critically acclaimed artists. The 26th annual Kids Night Out is set for Saturday, May 21 at 5 p.m. at the Overland Park Convention Center and sells out nearly every year with more than 1,200 donors in attendance.
