At this point, the Brothers Osborne are no strangers to the CMA Awards.
The duo was nominated for two awards at the CMA Awards in 2017, including Vocal Duo of the Year. They were also nominated in the Music Video of the Year category for “It Ain’t My Fault.”
Prior to the ceremony, two awards were announced early on Good Morning America. After those announcements were made, Brothers Osborne learned that they were already big winners! Their music video for “It Ain’t My Fault” was chosen as the winner in the Video of the Year category!
Released on May 2, 2017, the video for “It Ain’t My Fault” was directed by Wes Edwards and Ryan Silver.
While it is their music video, the Brothers Osborne barely appear in it. They both play pawn shop owners who find themselves in a sticky situation when a group of robbers comes in and terrorizes their shop. Interestingly, all of the thieves are wearing masks depicting different presidents, including Barack Obama, Donald Trump, and Bill Clinton.
From that point on, Brothers Osborne take their fans on a wild ride as the robbers try to escape from the police. The entire thing ends with all of the thieves somehow making their escape, except for the one wearing the Trump mask. Left all alone, he finds himself literally backed up against a wall by the police.
Considering the rebellious tone of “It Ain’t My Fault,” the video seemed like a fitting match! The CMA apparently thought so as well, since they gave it the Music Video of the Year Award!
