T.J. Osborne, half of the duo Brothers Osborne, in an interview with Time magazine publicly revealed for the first time that he is gay.

“I’m very comfortable being gay,” he told the magazine.

He admitted there could be some backlash in certain markets or segments of the country. “I don’t think I’m going to get run off the stage in Chicago,” he said in the interview. “But in a rural town playing a county fair? I’m curious how this will go.”

T.J. and his brother John have been openly liberal on a number of issues, including gun laws. Their 2015 video for "Stay a Little Longer” featured five real-life couple, including including young and old, interracial and same-sex, all kissing and snuggling.

Many of Osborne’s country music peers took to social media to celebrate his honesty.
