Pinecastle Presents The Osborne Brothers and More

NashvilleIt is with great pleasure that Pinecastle can present the final release in a four-part series documenting the career of The Osborne Brothers from Hyden, Kentucky to The Grand Old Opry. After Sonny Osborne’s retirement in late 2007, it looked as though the series that started in 1998 would be incomplete. We think we’re wrapping it up with an extra special treat for you with these seven unreleased tracks recorded during the middle of The Osborne Brothers’ period in Nashville. Each part of this series has documented periods of time and places that were stepping stones that ultimately led to Brothers Bobby and Sonny moving to Nashville and becoming members of the Grand Ole Opry on August 8, 1964. Bobby, who still performs as a member of the Opry to this day, is celebrating his 50th Anniversary as a member during 2014.

It was 43 years ago (October 22, 1970) that three unique individual college students came together to create something wonderful. Ken Irwin, Bill Nowlin and Marian Leighton-Levy created what became the premiere indie lable that covers a broad realm of musical styles. What started as an Americana or roots label has evolved into one of the most important independent labels in music today.
