Rain, schm-rain


Saturday morning did not appear at all inviting for an outdoor concert.

The rains pounded Port St. Joe all morning and into the afternoon before letting up enough for hope to bloom that The Brothers Osborne, and opening act Kendall Marvel, would still hit the stage at the WindMark green.

The concert got going late, about two hours behind the scheduled 4 p.m. ET start, but it did not disappoint a sellout crowd, who waited it all out patiently and were treated to a rousing show from the Grammy-nominated, CMA-winning Brothers.

The concert, sponsored by The St. Joe Company, D.R. Horton and the Gulf County Tourist Development Council, served as the release show for The Brothers Osborne new album, which they entitled “Port Saint Joe.”

Recorded over a two-week period in a Gulf County beach house last year, the album opens to the sound of waves along St. Joseph Peninsula.

The album will be formally released April 20 and The Brothers Osborne and Marvel begin a European tour. --- Tim Croft
