Osborne publicly came out as gay in February of 2021. He wrote the Brothers Osborne song “Younger Me” about his experience, and the duo won the Grammy Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for the song earlier this month.

“I never thought I’d be able to do music professionally because of my sexuality,” T.J. said in his acceptance speech. “I certainly never thought I would be here on this stage accepting a Grammy after having done something I thought was going to be life-changing, potentially in a very negative way. And here I am tonight, not only accepting a Grammy Award with my brother, which I love very much, but I’m here with a man who I love, and who loves me back. I don’t know what I did to get so lucky.”
