The 24,000 alloment had been sold out for several months prior. The week was filled withmany fan club breakfasts, celebrity sporting events, concerts, and a whole lot of fun for all who attended. The big event on Monday|
(after the Sawyer Brown Fan Club breakfast, of course) was the TNN / Music City News Awards. Even though Sawyer Browndidn't win Group of the Year, they did win the praise of those inattendance as well as those watching at home. The boys do wantto thank all the fans and friends who voted for them and for yoursupport through the years. 1992 will be Sawyer Brown's biggestand best ever.
Tuesday was the official opening of Fan Fair. Sawyer Brown appeared at the CMT booth for an autograph session. Then theygreeted fans at their booth for pictures and autographs. Those whoattended got a sneak preview of the new single and video "Cafe OnThe Corner".
The highlight on Wednesday was Sawyer Brown's performanceat the Liberty Records' show. That show also feature Garth Brooks,Tanya Tucker, and other Liberty acts. Sawyer Brown was critically acclaimed as having stole the show. A local DJ described it to his radio audience as one of themost electrifying performances he hadever witnessed. But then, when have any of you not seen a SB concert that wasn't electrifying? At the conclusion of the show, itwas more pictures and autographs at the booth. "Entertainment Tonight" showed up to film an interview of The Guys and to catchthe frenzy of the fans there to meet them.
