When the record-breaking Commodity Classic convention and trade show wraps up next March in New Orleans, it’s going out in style – with an Evening of Entertainment, sponsored by Monsanto, spotlighting the multiple-award-winning country band Sawyer Brown.
“We always like to end Commodity Classic with a great night to top off a busy week for our growers,” said Wesley Spurlock, a Texas corn farmer and Commodity Classic co-chair. “Sawyer Brown will be the perfect band to help us enjoy one last night together and celebrate our friendships and successes, before we head home for a hectic planting season.”
Since the band was founded in Florida the early 1980s, Sawyer Brown lead vocalist Mark Miller and crew have put in more than 4,500 shows and counting, spotlighting a stunning discography of 23 albums and more than 50 chart singles – including “Some Girls Do,” “Thank God for You,” “This Time,” “I Don't Believe in Goodbye” and “Drive Me Wild,” not to mention the new tune “We Got the Night.” While racking up the hits, Sawyer Brown also earned numerous awards, from the Country Music Association, the Academy of Country Music, TNN and CMT.
Commodity Classic takes place March 3-5, 2016, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. Visit www.CommodityClassic.com for more information.
