Hear the band’s first new music on Curb Records in almost 20

New documentary ‘Get Me To The Stage On Time’ premiering Sunday (10.1) at the Franklin Theatre during Nashville Film Festival

Trailblazing country group Sawyer Brown shares its first new music in nearly two decades with the road-warrior anthem “Under This Ole Hat,” out today (9.29) via Curb Records. The song will appear on a Blake Shelton-produced album, ‘Desperado Troubadours,’ due March 2024.

Listen to “Under This Ole Hat” —

“It’s the ‘90s. It’s new. It’s here. And it’s now!” says Sawyer Brown.

The new single reflects on the magnitude of miles Sawyer Brown has logged over a 40-year career. The band revives the fast-paced, twang-laden excellence that inspired the next generation of country artists and cemented it as one of the most important cultural staples of the genre in the 80s and 90s.

“Under This Ole Hat” is the kickoff of Sawyer Brown’s 40th anniversary celebration. The group will follow with the highly anticipated Get Me To The Stage On Time documentary, premiering Sunday, October 1st at the Nashville Film Festival. The film features Executive Producer Blake Shelton, and other artists including Dolly Parton, Dierks Bentley and more.

After winning the first-ever televised singing competition Star Search (Britney Spears, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake and more) in 1983, the band became a genre staple thanks to hits including “Some Girls Do” (1992), “Thank God for You” (1993), “Step That Step” (1985) and more. The band’s storied career includes awards such as the Country Music Association’s Horizon Award, the Academy of Country Music‘s Vocal Group of the Year, multiple CMT Video Group of the Year Awards and beyond.

The new documentary and record previews more 40th-anniversary celebrations to come from Sawyer Brown.
