Sing along with Sarah Buxton and your shower will resonate with stories of cranky relatives, careless ex-boyfriends, shopping binges, wannabe cowboys and strong-willed women. It's the kind of slice-of-life stuff that composes the fiber of country music, and it's the reason the raspy voiced 27-year-old songwriter has a dream deal with Lyric Street Records (Rascal Flatts, SheDaisy, Bucky Covington) and a Top Five hit with Keith Urban's version of her song "Stupid Boy," which just earned a CMA nomination for song of the year. The Lawrence High School grad keeps it real for her hometown: her song "Back Home" describes her experiences watching Jayhawk basketball, and she prominently sports a KU shirt on her MySpace banner (despite actually attending Belmont University in Nashville). While she awaits the release of her debut album, Buxton has been getting some gigs singing backup for Dierks Bentley.
