I loved the country group Sawyer Brown in the 1990s. What are they doing today?

The band launched by the TV show Star Search is in its 25th year playing music—and remarkably, with only two personnel changes. Sawyer Brown's 20th album, Mission Temple Fireworks Stand, was released in 2005. "We're still touring 12 months out of the year," says the band's drummer, Joe Smyth. "It's interesting to go from being the new kids on the block to the elder statesmen." He adds, "It means more to us today to go out and play for an appreciative audience than it did 20 years ago."
