Country artist Sarah Buxton was born in Lawrence, Kansas in the summer of 1980. At an early age, she was deeply involved in music; she played the piano and the flute as well as sang in a children’s choir. Eventually, she became more interested in songwriting and began writing her own poetry. After she graduated high school, she met Stevie Nicks, one of her musical icons, who persuaded her to move to Nashville, Tennessee. There, Buxton enrolled at Belmont University and began a Southern rock band, Stoik Oak. For a while, she felt discouraged about finding her place in the music industry until John Rich of Big & Rich encouraged her to continue pursuing her dreams and she asked her publisher to set up co-writing sessions. Before becoming a solo artist, she sang background vocals for Kenny Rogers and John Corbett.
Buxton’s debut single, “Innocence,” peaked at Number Thirty-One. “That Kind of Day,” her follow-up, reached Number Twenty-Six. Her song “Love Is a Trip,” was used by ABC to promote their Men in Trees series. She sang a duet in 2008 with Dierks Bentley, “Sweet & Wild” on his greatest hits album, which reached Number Fifty-One on the country music charts. Some of Buxton’s other singles include “Space” and “Outside My Window.”
Buxton has also written and sang popular songs like “Stupid Boy,” which was made famous by Keith Urban, reaching Number Three on the country charts. Urban also recorded her song “Put You in a Song” in 2010. Her song “Innocence” has been described as “one of the best songs about reminiscing about young love since Deana Carter’s ‘Strawberry Wine’.”
