It's a hate-free zone: Brothers Osborne clap back at Maddie & Tae critics

ABC/Lorenzo BevilaquaBrothers Osborne have no tolerance for haters on social media.

When several fans questioned Maddie & Tae’s CMA nomination for Vocal Duo of the Year on Twitter, the reigning CMA and ACM Vocal Duo was quick to clap back.

“because they’re f****** awesome that’s why,”  TJ and John tweeted.

Maddie & Tae were quick to express their gratitude:  “When your favorite duo shuts down haters for you,” they added, reposting Brothers’ comment. “Absolutely adore y’all…”

It’s worth noting that Maddie & Tae already have a CMA trophy of their own, having won Video of the Year in 2015 for their chart-topping “Girl in a Country Song.” The pair is currently working on their sophomore album.

The friendly CMA competition commences November 8, when Brothers Osborne defend their title against Maddie & Tae, Florida Georgia LineLOCASH, and Dan + Shay. The 51st CMA Awards start at 8 p.m. on ABC, live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
