WOW, what a night for the Brothers Osborne! The talented singers took home the award for Duo of the Year at the 2016 CMA Awards, making it the first time Florida Georgia Line hasn’t won in FOUR years — and fans are so happy for them!
With three Vocal Duo of the Year CMA awards in a row under their belts, it seemed like a given that Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard would take home the honor again at the 2016 show. But instead, there was a new pair in town to take over — and Brothers Osborne was actually named the winner!
The guys were clearly in shock as they took the stage to accept their trophy, even admitting themselves that they expected to be congratulating FGL on the win for this one. However, there’s no denying that these two have had an insane year — they finally broke out onto the mainstream country music scene with their first hit “Stay A Little Longer” in 2015, and are currently owning the airwaves with the follow up “21 Summer.”
Of course, Tyler and Bryan have been killing it, too, so it was for sure a tough decision. The guys won in 2013, 2014 and 2015, and we bet they’re super happy for their buddies who took it home this time around. Dan +Shay, Joey + Rory and Maddie & Tae were the other nominees in the category.
Once Brothers Osborne were announced as the winner, Twitter started blowing up with fans congratulating them on the huge accomplishment. Overall, the Internet seems to be totally thrilled that things were changed up a bit this year — and while we’re HUGE FGL fans, we totally agree!

HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Brothers Osborne winning Vocal Duo of the Year? DO you think it should’ve went to FGL…or someone else?
