Sarah Buxton At Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
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.
