AllMusic Review by

Most contemporary country acts perform spiritual numbers on occasion, and over the course of a two-decade career, Sawyer Brown has recorded enough of them to fill an album -- and the band has done just that with 2003's True Believer. Featuring three new tracks alongside seven tunes that have become established parts of Sawyer Brown's set list through the years, True Believer reflects the pop-friendly modern country style that's long been the group's hallmark. Since more than a few CCM artists follow a similar creative path, this collection should appeal not only to the group's fans, but to Christian music enthusiasts looking to broaden their horizons a bit. While Sawyer Brown's high degree of polish hasn't always endeared the group to the more honky tonk-oriented country fans, in this context the band's easy professionalism is just what the material calls for, and True Believer honors Sawyer Brown's talent and faith in equal measure.
