Sawyer Brown is an American country music band. It was founded in 1981 by Mark Miller (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Gregg “Hobie” Hubbard (keyboards, vocals), Bobby Randall (lead guitar, vocals), Joe “Curly” Smyth (drums), and Jim Scholten (bass guitar). The musicians were originally members of country singer Don King’s road band and chose to stay together after King retired. They competed on a television competition series, winning that show’s grand prize and later signed to Capitol Records. Duncan Cameron, formerly of the Amazing Rhythm Aces, replaced Randall in 1991, and Shayne Hill replaced him in 2004.
Sawyer Brown released 18 studio albums and charted over 50 times on the Hot Country Songs charts, including three No. 1 singles: “Step That Step” (1985), “Some Girls Do” (1992), and “Thank God for You” (1993). The band’s sound is largely defined by country pop and rock music influences, with cover versions of songs by George Jones, Michael Johnson, and Dave Dudley also among their hit singles. Artists with whom they have collaborated include Randy Scruggs, Joe Bonsall, and Mac McAnally.
Their song “The Boys & Me” reached number 4 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart.
