The original members of the band were Mark Miller (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Gregg "Hobie" Hubbard (keyboards, vocals), Bobby Randall (guitars, vocals), Joe "Curly" Smyth (drums), and Jim Scholten (bass guitar) .The five musicians were originally members of country singer Don King's road band, but chose to stay together after King retired in 1981. Sawyer Brown competed in the show Star Search in 1983 and won the grand prize. The band was then signed with Capital Records in 1984. The band recorded for Capitol between then and 1991, and for Curb Records between then and 2005, except for a short time in 2003 when they were signed to Lyric Street Records. Duncan Cameron, formerly of the Amazing Rhythm Aces, replaced Bobby Randall in 1991, and Shayne Hill replaced him in 2004.
