Music and politics. Politics and music.
Should musicians be politically engaged or should they just keep quiet and play music? Everyone has opinion on the matter, but after President Trump’s recent “shithole” comments, Brothers Osborne is using their platform to speak up. Growing up in a little trailer park in Maryland, they took exception the shithole comments, however Chris on Twitter (guessing he’s not a Grammy nominated musician) had some unsolicited career advice for them.
Their response was incredible.
Here’s some good advice from a fan. Stay away from politics. We could give a shit less about your political views. We just want to enjoy your music. No need to risk career suicide with a tweet. Just saying.

We came from nothing. If sticking up for the little guy means career suicide then so be it. https://t.co/3j5BftfdwR
