The Hits Live is the title of a live compilation album released in 2000 by the American country music band Sawyer Brown. The album comprises fourteen live renditions of their 1980s and 1990s country hits, as well as a live rendition of the single "800 Pound Jesus" from their 2000 album Drive Me Wild. The live tracks were all recorded on tour from late 1999 to early 2000 with the majority coming from a show in Ogden, Utah. The other three tracks—"Perfect World", "Garage Band" and a cover of Johnny Lee's "Lookin' for Love"—are new to this album.
