Sawyer Brown - Celebrated Their Twentieth Anniversary
No, it's not an April Fools joke, it was exactly twenty years ago on Monday April 1, 1982 that Mark Miller and company founded Sawyer Brown, the revered rockin’ country band that zoomed to fame after winning the grand prize on TV's "Star Search." After performing over three thousand amazing live concert dates, Sawyer Brown celebrated the twenty year mark with the release on June 11th of their eighteenth album "Can You Hear Me Now" on Curb Records.
In other Sawyer Brown anniversaries, Mark Miller brought his wife and children to their concert in Laughlin, Nevada. Exactly eleven years to that day on Saturday March 29, 1991, Sawyer Brown was playing Laughlin, when Mark got the call that his wife was in labor with their first child. By the time the band finished the set and Mark flew home to Nashville, he had just missed the birth of the baby girl. Madison is now eleven years old and to ensure she remembers this birthday with Dad, Mark brought her out on the Flamingo’s stage so the entire audience could sing "Happy Birthday" to her. Mark told the audience, "she missed our gig here eleven years ago, so I wanted to make sure she didn't miss it this time around."
