Solid Hits Collection

"Some people probably still remember Sawyer Brown as the country act discovered on the original Star Search. Their music was somewhat flimsy but fun then. However, they quickly developed into a solid country act, as witnessed by this greatest hits collection. All 10 songs hit the Billboard Country top 5 singles, with "Thank God for You" and "Some Girls Do" going all the way to #1. The band include a nice mixture of up-tempo songs and ballads here. Their up-tempo songs really swing, especially "Thank God for You," with its clever chorus, "I thank the bank for the money/ Thank God for you." Perhaps their best ballad is "The Walk," which went to #2 on the Country charts. The song brilliantly captures the fear that a child can feel when separating from his parents, with its haunting refrain, "Cause I took this walk you're walking now/ Boy, I've been in your shoes." Impressively, all of the songs were written or co-written by lead singer Mark Miller or other band members; the band clearly has depth and talent. Like many older country bands, Sawyer Brown hasn't made much noise on country radio in recent years. However, they were signed to Lyric Street Records (home of Rascall Flatts and Shedaisy) in 2003, and they're still recording and touring. If you're not familiar with their music already or don't have any of their CDs, this greatest hits compilation is a terrific place to start."

"Bought this CD several years ago while dating a lady who favored country and this group in particular. Not previously a country fan but found to my great surprise that this cd rarely leaves my cd player for long. Cafe on the Corner is playing as I write this. Buy it."
