Brothers Osborne performed “Younger Me” during iHeartRadio’s Can’t Cancel Pride on Friday, June 4.
For the first-time ever, the superstar country duo performed their latest single “Younger Me,” a song that is an anthem that TJ Osborne wrote about coming out. Performing live from The Tennessee State Capitol Building in Nashville, TN, the brothers made a powerful statement with their performance, bringing a message of resilience about growing up different.
