It's been a long road for Country Rock band Sawyer Brown.  The band formed in Nashville, rehearsing at a studio on Sawyer Brown Rd, taking its name.  They thought auditioning for Star Search back in 1983 would be a good way to get a production tape to send to producers.  Hoping it was a step toward stardom, they never expected the call to appear on the TV program.




In 1984, Sawyer Brown stood on stage with Ed McMahon to receive top prize on Star Search - $100,000.  The first concert they booked after winning, their 'coming out' show was at the Swiss Villa Amphitheater (renamed Black Oak Mountain Amphitheater) in Lampe, MO.  Right in Branson's backyard.   The band headlined at the Grand Palace in Branson for weeks at a time in the 1990s.




Since those early days, Sawyer Brown has produced more than 20 studio albums, and more than 50 charted singles, including five top ten singles.  Their best known song is 'Some Girls Do.'




While they are no longer a regular feature in Branson they do make brief stops at the Oak Ridge Boys Theatre, which, they say always feels like a homecoming.   In this 30th year since that Star Search win, which launched their band to stardom, they will be in Branson on April 20th, and October 19th.   Thank goodness that road still brings them back!

Oak Ridge Boys
These guys put on a super great show. They are still enthusiastic and fun to watch. Gospel music is their new genre (along with all the favorite songs). The second half of the show is mainly gospel music. We, and other folks, agreed it was the best part of the concert. During intermission, they even come out on stage and shake hands and sign autographs. Super nice guys who appreciate their fans.

What a great show to go to - 3 of the original retired members were there and performed. It was worth the trip - we originally picked branson to visit because we wanted to go to their concert
