Sawyer Brown is an American country music band founded in 1981 in Apopka, Florida, by five members of country pop singer Don King’s road band: Bobby Randall (guitar) and Jim Scholten (bass guitar), both from Midland, Michigan; Joe Smyth (drums), Gregg “Hobie” Hubbard (keyboards), and Mark Miller (lead vocals). After King retired in 1981, the five members decided to form a band, first choosing the name Savanna before switching to Sawyer Brown, also the name of a road near where they practiced.

In the latter half of the 1990s, the group seemed to gradually fall out of favor with country radio, despite a crossover hit in 1999 with “Drive Me Wild”. They parted ways with Curb in 2003 and signed with Lyric Street Records. One single was released on Lyric Street before Sawyer Brown left that label as well. 2004 saw the group returning to Curb Records, just as Duncan Cameron decided to leave the group to pursue a lifelong dream of flying for Southwest Airlines. Guitarist Shayne Hill replaced Duncan’s post as guitarist, although both Cameron and Hill are in the credits on Mission Temple Fireworks Stand. The album’s title track, featuring Robert Randolph, peaked at No. 55. The second single off that album, “They Don’t Understand”, was a minor Top 40 hit on the country charts, and Top 20 on the Christian single charts.

Sawyer Brown wrote “The Nebraska Song” in honor of Brook Berringer, a Nebraska Cornhuskers quarterback who died in a plane crash on April 18, 1996. (The song was actually written before his death.) The song appears on the group’s album Six Days on the Road. Mark Miller also served as a pallbearer at Berringer’s funeral.
