Sarah Buxton is the self-titled debut album by American country singer Sarah Buxton. It was released on February 23, 2010 via Lyric Street Records. The album's only single, "Outside My Window," was released in June 2009 and was a Top 25 hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, reaching a peak of number 23 in March 2010. The album also includes Buxton's previous three singles that were released on her extended-play, Almost My Record. As of April 2010, the album has sold nearly 30,000 copies.


Prior to its release, Buxton issued a six-song extended play entitled Almost My Record. This EP produced the singles "Innocence," "That Kind of Day" and "Space," all of which charted in the country music Top 40. Those three singles and two other tracks from the EP are included on this album, as is her fourth single, "Outside My Window."[3] Buxton co-wrote ten of the eleven songs, including "Stupid Boy," which was previously released by Keith Urban as a single from his 2007 album Love, Pain & the Whole Crazy Thing.

Critical reception[edit]

Jessica Phillips of Country Weekly magazine described Buxton's vocal range as "transform[ing] from sunny to sweet[…]to scratchy and soulful" and referred to the songs' topics as "being a typical 20-something-year-old girl in America." Phillips gave the album three-and-a-half stars out of five.[2] Bobby Peacock of Roughstock also described Buxton's voice favorably and called the lyrics "optimistic," but thought that some tracks were overproduced.[4] Stephen Thomas Erlewine considered the album "carefully constructed, with each element designed to reach the broadest possible audience" but said that it also showed that Buxton is "a solid writer and performer,"ultimately giving it three stars out of five.[1]
