Get Me to the Stage on Time is executive-produced by Blake Shelton

Sawyer Brown blazed a trail with explosive live performances and chart-topping songs in the 90’s. Genre-staple hits like “Some Girls Do,” “Thank God for You”, “Step That Step,” and more are synonymous with pushing the band and the genre forward. In honor of the group’s 40th anniversary, Sawyer Brown announces its new documentary Get Me To The Stage On Time, a docu-exploration of how a Nashville outlier changed the country genre by turning 15 minutes of fame into 40 years.

Executively produced by Blake Shelton, the film is a behind-the-scenes look at millions of miles, 24 albums, six thousand shows and gratitude for the legions of loyal fans, even when Nashville counted them out. Featuring interviews with Shelton, Dolly Parton, Dierks Bentley and more, the documentary tells a David and Goliath story that transcends musical genres.

It’s the American dream by way of a dirt road, and the documentary will premiere on Sunday, October 1st at the Nashville Film Festival at the Franklin Theatre in Franklin, TN. Following the film’s premiere, the band will perform live on the Franklin Theatre stage and be joined by several surprise guests.

Sawyer Brown broke onto the country music scene after winning the first-ever televised singing competition Star Search in 1983 – the same show that introduced music fans to artists including Britney Spears, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake and more. Since then, the band has written multiple chart-topping songs, won awards such as the Country Music Association’s Vocal Group of the Year and the Academy of Country Music’s Vocal Group of the Year, and captured the hearts of audiences worldwide with its dynamic and engaging live performances.

Get Me To The Stage On Time is the first of many announcements – including a Blake Shelton-produced album – to come from the band as it celebrates its 40th anniversary.
