For John and TJ Osborne, getting into music was unavoidable. Growing up in the water town of Deale, Maryland, their close-nit-family of seven spent most nights not in front of the television, but writing and playing songs. The Brothers' father had a shed behind their home that he used for small performances for friends and family. John and TJ could be caught listening in on their father's playing or fetching beers for pocket change. Later their father would convert that shed into a home studio where their parents would write and record songs.As the brothers aged, they formed a band with their ever eclectic father named "Deuce & a Quarter." The band played cover songs from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Dwight Yoakem to Merle Haggard to Bob Seger. They performed at local venues in the town, but it was here that the Brothers got the taste for performing live.

Singer/Songwriter Keith Anderson's latest song "I'll Bring The Music" sums up Anderson to a T. That is one thing that you can always say about this academic athlete from Miami, OK, who has always excelled at anything he has put his mind to, is he WILL bring the Music. Although he has co-written hits for other artists, most notably "Lost In This Moment", the No. 1 smash for Big & Rich which garnered him a CMA and ACM Song of the Year nomination, Anderson does not write with other artists in mind. "I think I'll always write about what I know and feel–and typically with myself in mind. However, I write a lot and I keep the songs that are really speaking to me when I'm recording, and pitch everything else to other artists", says Anderson. Anderson also co-wrote the Grammy-nominated, "Beer Run (B Double E Double Are You In?)" for Garth Brooks and George Jones, "The Bed" for Gretchen Wilson and "Barn Burner" for Jason Michael Carroll. His debut CD, "Three Chord Country and American Rock & Roll", was certified Gold and garnered two Top 10 hits (accompanied by two No. 1 music videos), "Pickin' Wildflowers," and "Every Time I Hear Your Name," along with two Top 30 hits "XXL" and "Podunk". This success prompted music trades Billboard and Radio & Records to name him country music's No. 1 New Male Artist of 2005 and the top new solo country artist of the year. It wasn't just his music that was getting attention. Anderson was named one of People Magazine's "50 Hottest Bachelors", and Men's Fitness Magazine's, "Ultimate Country Star". Anderson's sophomore CD garnered the biggest hit of his career, "I StillMiss You", which peaked at #2 and another Top 25 hit, "Sunday Morning In America".Taking the lead with other gold and platinum artists, Anderson decided to take hold of the reigns this time by launching his music his own way and letting the fans help drive his music and passion. " "I'll Bring the Music" has had a huge resonance with the fans." says Anderson. "As I tour all over the country, that is the song that gets them on their feet and is the song they are still singing as they head out the door. It reminds me of how "Pickin' Wildflowers moved them". And now Sirius XM Radio is "Dancin to the beat" as it has been added to The Highway channel 59's program, "On The Horizon"

Much has been made about how such new country acts as Eric Church, The Band Perry and Luke Bryan have fused elements of pop music's past with the country core to create a new wave of sound. But Milsap set the standard for thinking outside of country's proverbial box.Milsap emulated James Taylor in his vocal approach to "(There's) No Gettin' Over Me," a #1 record in country and pop; hooked into the instructions he got playing piano on Elvis Presley sessions to build the sound of "Smoky Mountain Rain," another major crossover hit; and recorded an entire album of songs made famous by late Country Music Hall of Famer Jim Reeves.Milsap used pop, rock and R&B elements to test country's borders, and did so in a way that connected fiercely with the music-buying public. He compiled 40 #1 country hits. Milsap's sales accrued eight gold albums; his Greatest Hits made him one of the first acts in any genre to obtain double-platinum status after the RIAA introduced the multi-platinum honor in 1984.
