Sawyer Brown
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:[1] 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.

Chase Rice
Chase Rice started playing guitar his sophomore year of college, and his music career has taken off pretty quickly since then. His dad was and always will be his greatest inspiration to write music. He was back at home, sitting on the couch playing guitar, and his dad said to him, "Anyone can play guitar, but nobody is really gonna listen until you start singing." Well, he didn't start singing right away, but a few months after that conversation he got a call from his mom telling him to come home, his dad had a heart attack. He was taken home to see the Lord that day and Chase's life changed forever. People deal with the loss of a loved one differently, but he dealt with losing his dad by writing a song about everything he was feeling. You can't sum something like that up in a song, but music quickly became Chase's outlet to express what he was going through. He was sitting in his room one night and began pouring his heart and soul out onto a piece of paper. Chase wrote a song that night about his dad called "Larger Than Life." Since then, Chase has been writing songs about pretty much anything that happens in to him. He doesn't just write his own music, he lives it. These songs are his life. As the ''Survivor: Nicaragua' runner-up was able to share with millions of people last season on the show.
