Sawyer Brown

One of those rare acts who actually became stars directly from winning Star Search, country-rockers Sawyer Brown wound up enjoying a long, hit-filled career and remained commercially viable into the new millennium. The group originally grew out of country-pop singer Don King's touring band, with guitarist Bobby Randall and drummer Joe Smyth signing on in 1979, and bassist Jim Scholten, keyboardist Gregg "Hobie" Hubbard, and guitarist/future lead singer Mark Miller all arriving in 1980. King stopped touring in 1981, and the group decided to stay together, naming themselves after the Nashville street where they rehearsed. They spent the next two years on the road, and their agent landed them an audition for the popular syndicated talent show Star Search. Sawyer Brown won the grand prize of 100,000 dollars, and it wasn't long before Liberty/Capitol signed them up in 1984. Their self-titled debut album was released in 1985, and their debut single, "Leona," climbed into the Top 20; its follow-up, "Step That Step," went all the way to number one, and the album fell one spot short of that same position. Their sophomore album, Shakin', was another hit, producing the Top Five single "Betty's Bein' Bad."

The band endured a singles-chart slump over 1986-1987, likely a result of their increasingly slick country-pop production, but they rebounded when "This Missin' You Heart of Mine" went to number two at the end of 1987. Another commercially disappointing period followed, lasting into 1991, but it was interrupted by the Top Five single "The Race Is On," which helped its accompanying album, The Boys Are Back, climb into the Top Five. Following 1991's Buick album, Sawyer Brown parted ways with Liberty and signed with Curb; around the same time, guitarist Randall departed and was replaced by Duncan Cameron. Through it all, they never stopped touring, which helped them maintain a following, and it paid off when "The Walk" went to number two in late 1991. Their first Curb album, The Dirt Road, produced two big hits in the Top Five title track and the band's second number one hit, "Some Girls Do." Their follow-up, 1992's Cafe on the Corner, was acclaimed by many critics as their most consistent, fully realized album, and it gave them three Top Five hits in the title track, "All These Years," and "Trouble on the Line." 1993's Outskirts of Town continued their hot streak, producing two more Top Fives in "The Boys & Me" and "Hard to Say," plus their third number one in "Thank God for You." The band capped off their commercial resurgence with Greatest Hits 1990-1995, a Top Five-selling compilation whose two new tracks, "I Don't Believe in Goodbye" and "This Time," both made the Top Five themselves.

Released later in 1995, the Top Ten This Thing Called Wantin' and Havin' It All produced another Top Five smash in "Treat Her Right" and was followed by two albums in 1997: the live Six Days on the Road (another Top Ten seller) and the gospel/CCM record Hallelujah He Is Born. The Top Ten Drive Me Wild arrived in 1999, and its title cut was also a Top Ten hit. Following 2002's poppy Can You Hear Me Now, the group parted ways with Curb and signed a new deal with Disney's country subsidiary Lyric Street. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

So, you mean to tell me Ice Cube and Mack 10 wrote The Walk by Sawyer Brown? Jeez, get your s**t together, Pandora.

I worked at a restaurant that was right off the street that they are named after. They came in several times and were so sweet and didn't give me a hard time for freaking out when they sat in my section for the 1st time. I love their music and their down to earth personalitie s .
Just saw them perform last night in Minot, ND at the state fair. Still awesome and sounding great!
I saw them win on Star Search too. They played at a rodeo when I was young. They loved that me and my friends sang the words to their songs. We got to be in the front row at that concert. It was cool.....
This is still one of the greatest bands. I actually saw them win on star search. Yes I am that old people. Trust me, your lover will kiss you no matter what.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works
The Walk and their cover of The Race Is On are among my favorites.
Forgot he won star search

I saw them in Savannah probably 20 years ago! Mark had broken his leg shortly before that concert and he was still all over the place, cast on his leg and all! They were awesome.

Sawyer Brown was the main tape I played in my first car.

I saw Sawyer Brown in Red Lodge, Montana (at the outdoor rodeo site)while working at Yellowstone in 2001. As a retired musician (and music teacher), I was blown away by their fabulous performance and stage demeanor.
Check out Red Lodge on a map...they drew about 10,000 people to a location that you can't get to from here. WHAT A TREAT!
Sawyer Brown left a solid collection of music that could make you laugh and cry and leave you dancing or thinking. I saw them preform at a city music festival a few years ago and they have as much fun on stage as any artists I have ever seen.
i can pull Pandora ,but no sound why is that? theres nothing wrong with the computer.
