|Sherwin performed for a short time in 1980 as a duo with North Carolina
native and harmonica player Dwight Martin. They mixed comic routines
and vocals and a high energy format that was instantly successful. They were
even among nominees for best Comedy Act by Country Music Readers Polls
and they were booked nearly every night of the year. By early 1981,
the grueling schedule took a toll on Sherwin's voice
so he once again assembled a band featuring Dwight.
