More than 4500 shows and counting. More than a million miles behind them and still seeing the highway miles click by outside their bus window. Twenty-three albums. More than 50 chart singles. CMA, ACM, and CMT awards on the shelf. To pull a line from one of the band’s enduring hits: “This is the life and times of a travelin’ band.” A traveling band, indeed. Always on the move—on the road, on stage, and in their career. When asked about what keeps him motivated on the road, lead singer Mark Miller says, “It’s playing the next show. Be grateful for where you’ve been and be excited about where you’re going.”

Sawyer Brown’s hits include: “Step That Step”, “Betty’s Bein’ Bad”, “The Walk”, “The Boys and Me”, “Some Girls Do”, and “Thank God For You”.

Jimmy and The Statler Brothers were inducted into the GMA (Gospel Music Association) Hall of Fame on October 29, 2007, and inducted into the CMA (Country Music Association) Hall of Fame on June 29, 2008. After the Statler Brothers retired, Jimmy seized the opportunity to launch a solo career to share new music with his fans. His latest album “Hits & Hymns”, is off to a roaring start, as it debuted on Billboard’s Country Albums chart at No. 10, becoming his first top ten record on the chart as a solo artist. The feel-good album also debuted at #1 on the Southern Gospel Album chart and No. 6 on the Billboard Contemporary Christian Album chart. Accompanying the album is the Bill Gaither hosted DVD special, Jimmy Fortune: Hits & Hymns, which also debuted with strong numbers. The DVD collection debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Music Video chart, along with No. 1 on the Christian Music Video chart, marking Fortune’s first #1 solo project.
