AccuRadio Song Of The Day-Sawyer Brown

Artist:Sawyer Brown
Song:Some Girls Do
Album:Best Of Sawyer Brown

Sawyer Brown won the TV talent contest Star Search and went on to a significant run at the top of the country charts. Some Girls Do was one of their three number one country hits. The band started out backing up country singer Don King. When he retired in 1981, they remained together. The lead singer and main songwriter was Mark Miller. Other members were Bobby Randall on guitar, Gregg "Hobie" Hubbard on keyboards, Jim Scholten on bass and Joe Smyth on drums. At first they were called Savanna and then named themselves Sawyer Brown after the Nashville street where they rehearsed. They won Star Search in 1983 and won $100K and a contract with Curb Records. Step That Step was their first number one country hit in 1984. Bobby Randall was replaced by Amazing Rhythm Aces guitarist Duncan Cameron in 1991. Some Girls Do was their second number one country hit in 1992. The song was written by Mark Miller. Their third number one country hit was Thank God For You in 1993. But they had several top ten hits through the 90s. Curb needs to release a definitive Sawyer Brown comp. This 2008 budget CD only has ten songs but it's the best one out there to date. Sawyer Brown faded in the late 90s and left Curb in 2005. Other than Cameron being replaced by Shayne Hill, Sawyer Brown is the same as they were twenty years ago and they still tour. They record for Mark Miller's Beach Street Records which has had success with Contemporary Christian acts like Casting Crowns and Rebecca St. James. Here's the video for Some Girls Do by Sawyer Brown.
