As artists, they have had 7 Billboard Top 40 hits. McGraw took an interest in their songwriting and since then has recorded over 30 of their songs. They were both celebrity judges on the 2nd season of “Nashville Star.” In 2005 and 2006, they had their own reality series on CMT called “Barely Famous, The Warren Brothers.” Their sense of humor has landed them as part time radio personalities, and they’ve even had a few film cameos.
