Founded in 1981, the band is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, having played more than 4,000 shows over the course of those years, logging mileage well into the seven figures. And as the band clearly shows in its new CD, “Travelin’ Band,” the wheels are still turning and an ever-open road stretches out ahead.
Sawyer Brown is made up of guitarist Bobby Randall, drummer Joe Smyth, bassist Jim Scholten, keyboardist Gregg “Hobie” Hubbard and guitarist/lead singer Mark Miller. The group was originally part of country-pop singer Don King’s band. After King stopped touring in 1981, they choose to stay together, naming themselves after the Nashville street where they rehearsed.
They spent the next two years performing on the road, and eventually landed an audition for the popular talent show Star Search. Sawyer Brown won the grand prize of $100,000 and went on to sign a recording contract in 1984.
Over the band’s impressive 30-year career, Sawyer Brown has recorded numerous hit songs, including “Some Girls Do,” “All These Years,” “The Walk,” “Six Days on the Road,” “Thank God for You,” “Dirt Road,” and many more.
See the award-winning country band as they take the stage at Inn of the Mountain Gods on Friday, October 11.
