Love The Lonely Out Of You

Album: Brothers Osborne (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • The Brothers Osbourne co-wrote this traditional-sounding country tune with Nashville songwriter Connie Harrington (Lee Brice's "I Drive Your Truck"). T.J. Osbourne explained the song's old-school vibe to Billboard magazine. "We recorded that song live in the studio," he said. "It's very easy to get caught up in the glamour of a Nashville studio, and have it suck the life out of a song -- if you're not careful. On that song, we were able to get in and do it like an old country song - live, with no Auto-Tuning."

    "There's some imperfections in the vocal and the guitar, but ultimately, it has that stark and real vibe that it needed to have," he added. "Emotionally, that one takes the most out of us to perform."
