Grammy nominated country music artists Brothers Osborne will bring their show to Davis & Elkins College as headline performers for the annual Déjà vu Music Festival to benefit the Elkins/Randolph County YMCA. The Saturday, May 7th concert in Myles Center for the Arts Harper-McNeeley Auditorium is sponsored by Allegheny Insurance, Elkins Automotive and Elkins Fordland, Elkins Distributing/Yuengling: America’s Oldest Brewery, J.F. Allen Co. and MegaCorp Logistics.

Tickets are $35, $25, $20 and free for Davis & Elkins College students. Tickets may be purchased online at http://www.dewv.edu/arts-entertainment/season/campus-activities-board-events beginning at 10 a.m. Friday, March 4 and in person at the D&E Box Office in Jennings Randolph Hall beginning at 10 a.m. Monday, March 7. For additional information, call the D&E Box Office at 304-637-1255.

This is the second consecutive year Davis & Elkins has worked with local businesses to present a Déjà vu concert to benefit the YMCA. The College also partnered with local businesses in 2013 to host a performance by American Idol winner Phillip Phillips to benefit various projects at the Elkins/Randolph County YMCA.

“Henry Ford coined, ‘Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.’ That quote sums up the relationship between Davis & Elkins College (Campus Activities Board) and the Elkins/Randolph County YMCA,” says Vice President for Student Affairs Scott Goddard. “From Phillip Phillips to Scotty McCreery to Brothers Osborne, it is truly a pleasure to collaborate in an effort to provide magical concerts and events for Davis & Elkins College and the greater Elkins Community and Randolph County.”

Doors open for the concert at 6:30 p.m. An opening act will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. with Brothers Osborne to follow.

Currently performing as special guests on Miranda Lambert’s “Keeper of the Flame” tour, Brothers Osborne has this year pulled in a Grammy nomination and two Academy of Country Music Awards nominations for Vocal Duo of the Year and New Vocal Duo of the Year.

The nominations follow the release of Brothers Osborne’s debut album, “Pawn Shop,” which coincided with the duo’s national television debut on NBC’s “Late Night With Seth Myers” and a performance on the “Today” show.

Like its title suggests, “Pawn Shop” offers a little bit of everything. There’s bluesy slide guitar, country duets, southern rock solos, harmonies and plenty of groove. The music mix reflects the duo’s early years. Growing up in the small fishing town of Deale, Md., siblings T.J. and John Osborne often hosted jam sessions in their home. With John on guitar and T.J. on vocals, they played everything from traditional country to rock ‘n roll.

A single from “Pawn Shop,” “Stay A Little Longer,” earned Brothers Osborne their first Grammy nomination for Best Country Duo/Group Performance and critical acclaim from Rolling Stone magazine. Produced by Jay Joyce, the album also includes hit radio single “Rum,” a guest appearance by Lee Ann Womack on “Loving Me Back,” and closes out with the boot stomping “It Ain’t My Fault.”

“All of this equals an emerging act with a great buzz,” Goddard says. “Don’t miss their performance on Saturday, May 7th.”
