Missouri-native Sara Evans has had five #1 singles, sold millions of records, won the Academy of Country Music’s Top Female Vocalist Award and claimed a Country Music Association trophy for her signature song, “Born To Fly.”
With the release of “Words,” her eighth studio album, Sara demonstrates that she’s still willing to leap into the unknown, take greater control of her career and call the shots in a way that’s unusual in country music – particularly unusual for a woman in the genre.
Her most recent release, “Copy That,” is a 13-song collection finds Evans putting her distinctive creative stamp on some of the most iconic songs in country and pop music as well as shining a spotlight on some little-known gems.
In her powerful, personal, and often humorous new book, “Born to Fly,” Sara opens up and shares stories from her career, describing what it’s like living in the spotlight and how her faith keeps her strong. She writes about overcoming life’s most challenging experiences, from a childhood accident that nearly took her life, to the loss she experienced when her parents divorced, and from her own painful and very public divorce, to finding incredible love when she least expected it with former pro quarterback-turned-sportscaster Jay Barker. Now, after over a decade of marriage, Sara and Jay’s blended family of nine is thriving, filling her life with focus and meaning.
