AT THE REGENCY. The Brothers Roberson, winners of the 33rd Annual Country Showdown at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN, are a country music duo from Southwest Missouri and a part of a rich musical family tradition. Rhett Roberson said, “The first time I walked on the Ryman stage I did it with my Grandpa’s guitar he gave me when I graduated High School.” With their grandfathers playing country and bluegrass it set the tone for their musical journey at a young age.

Whether it was gospel music at church, jazz shows with dad, or singing around the house with mom it all shaped their sound. They list influences from Keith Whitley and Waylon Jennings to John Mayer and Ray Lamontagne.

The diverse upbringing created not only unique tastes but a unique combined sound and after years in separate bands the brothers, Brendan and Rhett Roberson, formed The Brothers Roberson in July, 2012, releasing their first full length album in March of 2013 (The Brothers Roberson).

Over the next couple of years they played everything from tiny ocean side bars in south Florida to large theaters in California. “If they’ll give us a place to put on a show we’ll do it!” says younger brother Brendan, “The performance is the fun part. We really enjoy engaging with an audience… anyone can sound good in a studio, the stage show is where we really get to have a good time.” The Brothers Roberson teamed up with Tony Conway/Ontourage Management in Nashville, TN and William Morris Endeavor – Nashville and are gearing up for a big year.
