"Weed, Whiskey and...Cheech & Chong?" Brothers Osborne's once-in-a-lifetime backstage meet-up

ABC/Image Group LAPort Saint Joe, the new album from Brothers Osborne, is getting high praise from everyone from Miranda Lambert to Cheech & Chong...pun intended.

On Monday night, TJ and John Osborne played The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and came face to face with two of pop culture’s most notorious stoners: Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong. It was a fortuitous meeting, since Port Saint Joe includes numerous references to TJ and John’s affinity for pot, including a track titled “Weed, Whiskey and Willie.”

“Uh… met Cheech & Chong backstage at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” Brothers tweeted, along with a photo of the foursome.

“Great great people and left us with a very kind parting gift,” the siblings added, along with a photo of a jar of Chong’s Choice Cannabis. “Life complete.”

Meanwhile, Miranda tweeted on Tuesday, “I can’t get enough. Thank you Brothers Osborne. I needed this. We all did."  We assume she means the music.
