Long a favorite singer and songwriter from her fellow Nashville artists, Buxton is probably most famous from both her writing of the smash hit single "Stupid Boy" made-famous by Keith Urban and her debut Lyric Street Records self-titled album released back in 2010. On that critically-acclaimed record, she has singles "Innocence," "That Kind of Day," Space," and "Outside My Window" all make dents on the Billboard Hot Country charts. When Lyric Street closed in mid-2010, Buxton found herself without a label.
Since that time, she has been involved in other projects such as the duo Buxton-Hughes and a band called Skyline Motel. She's continued to actively be a sought-after songwriter in Nashville, Urban recorded another one of Buxton's songs, "Put You in a Song", for the 2010 album Get Closer. Buxton also wrote Big & Rich's 2012 single "That's Why I Pray", Gary Allan's 2013 single "Pieces" from his album Set You Free and The Band Perry's 2013 single "Don't Let Me Be Lonely" from their album Pioneer. In 2014, she co-wrote "PrizeFighter" by Trisha Yearwood and Kelly Clarkson, "Sun Daze" by Florida Georgia Line and "Fix" and "For Her" by Chris Lane. Her distinctive vocal styling has had her sing harmony and back-up on many a project including ones for Keith Urban and David Nail. And on the personal front, she's gotten married and had a couple of children since making her debut.
This site found enormous promise in her debut project and her resume is as powerful as any songwriter in Nashville. After Lyric Street closed, I've found her voice really is missed in the country music landscape and it's exciting to see that we'll be enjoying new Sarah Buxton music in the coming year or so.
Deep gratitude is what I feel. After 8 years of waiting, I am finally starting to record for myself again. Thank you @tronian @thekonradsnyder and #tombukovac for a magical and inspiring day. Konrad found 4 lucky clovers in the back yard, so that has to be a good omen. And now there is a thunderstorm and I love thunderstorms. Wow, it’s a good day. 🍀🍀🍀🍀
