Out of Nashville, Sawyer Brown brought the party to Denver’s World Famous Grizzly Rose on Saturday night. Sawyer Brown, led by energetic frontman, lead vocalist, and dancer extraordinaire Mark Miller, has been influencing country music since 1981, when they formed in Apopka, FL, after being Don King’s road band. In 1983, Sawyer Brown gained momentum by winning the grand prize on the reality TV show of yesteryear, Star Search. Sawyer Brown went on to release 18 studio albums, chart 50 singles, and have 3 number one hits Step That Step, Some Girls Do, and Thank God For You.
Starting off with Boys and Me, Mark Miller led Gregg “Hobie” Hubbard (Keys), Jim Scholten (Bass), Joe Smyth (Drums), and Shayne Hill (Guitar), through the high energy hits like This Time, (This Thing Called) Wanting and Having it All, as well as the slower ballads that included Cafe on the Corner, The Walk, and All These Years, among others.
CMT was at the show filming Sawyer Brown and the Grizzly Rose, so be on the lookout for that.
