T.J. Osborne Looks Sharp in Blazer, Leather Pants & Cuban Heels as He Celebrates Love at CMA Awards

The Brothers Osborne hit the red carpet in sharp style at the 2021 CMA Awards last night.

The musical duo, composed of brothers John and T.J. Osborne, dressed in contrasting yet complementary looks. John wore a white top and brown trousers layered with a plaid coat, accessorized by a turquoise necklace, cowboy hat, rings and a Western belt. T.J., meanwhile, wore a white blazer over a black top, printed scarf and necklaces, paired with layered rings and sleek black leather trousers.

The brothers coordinated by wearing black boots—while, though differing in texture and style, matched from their dark neutral tone. John wore a pair of classic suede boots, while T.J. opted for an edgier set of reptile-embossed boots. Each appeared to feature thick heels, with T.J.’s shoes particularly featuring Cuban-style heels.

The duo notably took the CMA Awards stage twice on Wednesday evening. Initially, they won the award for Vocal Duo of the Year. T.J. made headlines while kissing his boyfriend, Abi Ventura, after coming out publicly this February.

“It’s been a crazy roller coaster of a year for us in so many ways, especially for me emotionally, and to have you all support me — it really does feel like love wins tonight,” T.J. said in their acceptance speech. “We love this genre, we love the people, we love all of you so much,” said John.

The brothers later took the stage to perform their new song “Younger Me,” based on T.J.’s coming out experience. T.J. wore a crystal-covered jacket and pants with lace-up sneakers for the occasion, while John wore dark trousers, a brown leather jacket and matching boots.

The first “CMA Awards Banquet and Show” was held in 1967. The following year, the CMA Awards was broadcast for the first time – making it the longest running, annual music awards program on network television. The CMA Awards have aired on ABC since 2006.
