Band Graces Cover Of Special Summer Issue

If you haven't already done so you will probably want to pick up a couple copies of the New Country Special Summer Travel Issue. The cover story features none other than our very own Sawyer Brown!

The summer travel issue takes its readers on a guided tour of Nashville. Mark Miller took New Country's Nashville Editor, Brian Mansfield, on a special tour of that included some spots that are particularly meaningful to him. The trip began with a visit to the road from which the band initially derived its name. From there the two stopped by Mark's favorite eating establishment the sportsman's Grille, then they took in some practice on the putting greens of the Legend's golf course and then they stopped by Bellevue Center to do a little shopping. The accompanying pictorial features some fun shots of mark hard at play...what we want to know is if he ever sunk any of those putts?

Also included in the article are some of the favorite places to see as presented by Hobie, Duncan, Joe and Jim. If hungry visitors stopped by to see Hobie he said he would probably take them out to Brown's Diner for one of the best cheeseburgers in town. A thirsty Duncan would take his visitors to meet his favorite bartender...Dave down at La Paz Restaurants Y Catina. History buff Joe Smyth suggests stopping br the Carter House in Franklin. Jim itinerary would begin with a visit to Andrew Jackson's Hermitage. For more in-depth details and a visit through Nashville, Sawyer Brown style, you'd best pick up a issue for yourself!
