TJ Osborne addresses “hurdles” in nation music after its launch
Country singer TJ Osborne feels freer than expected now after publicly coming out gay.
According to the 36 year old Osborne brothers Frontman shared his story in an interview with TIME magazine on Wednesday February 3rd and, during his appearance on February 4th on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, opened up the intense emotions associated with this journey.
“Just to hear you say that, to be honest, it made me so emotional,” said the actor in a preview video from the episode after the host Ellen DeGeneres mentioned in his introduction that he had just come out. “I’m trying not to cry on national television right now.”
TJ stated that this was a new experience for him as he usually doesn’t talk much about his personal life.
“I think it’s a really nice thing for me that I really never got out to very many people,” he said. “I’ve only done it to a few people, mainly because I just find it very awkward and uncomfortable. So it was a really wild experience to have met very few people, even though many of my friends and family already knew, only to then.” To come out publicly in one fell swoop, which was nice in one way, but just for a very emotional day in another.
