Taking their name from the Nashville street where they once rehearsed, Sawyer Brown made their national TV debut on the show Star Search in 1984. After winning $100,000, the band landed a record deal with Curb Records and charted its first single, "Leona," the same year. Sawyer Brown was one of the first country acts to use music videos to full advantage. From the start, their videos were built around concepts, rather than on straight performances. The videos also involved famous guest stars, among them the comedian Gallagher and wise guy weatherman Willard Scott. The videos showcased front man Mark Miller's boundless stage energy and demonstrated that the other members were having great fun playing together. Four of Sawyer Brown's videos -- including the rollicking "Some Girls Do" and "Six Days on the Road" -- have earned CMT video of the year awards. After 23 years, 3500+ shows, gold and platinum albums, a smattering of awards and more long odds than any act you can think of, Sawyer Brown remains a band you can count on. They have and hold on to a deep appreciation for the heart of small towns, rural realities, lives lived in common places and truths so basic they go unnoticed.
