Sara Evans

Biography:Sara Evans Sara Lynn Evans was raised on a farm near New Franklin, Missouri as the oldest girl amongst seven children. Music has always been a part of her life and by age five was singing every weekend in her family's band. When she was sixteen, she began performing at a nightclub near Columbia, Missouri, a gig that lasted two years.

She moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 1991 with the goal of becoming a country artist. That year she met Craig Schelske there and a year later moved to Oregon. They were involved both professionally and personally. Craig and Sara were married in 1993 and they returned to Nashville in 1995. Sara began recording demos. Songwriter Harlan Howard heard Sara as she sung a demo of one of his songs, "Tiger By the Tail" at County Q Studios**, and decided she should be the one to sing his music. She went under contract with RCA.

In 1997 Evans released her first album Three Chords and the Truth critics praised the album for returning back to traditional country and named it to many of their top ten of the year lists. Unfortunately, it did not catch on with country radio at the time and none of the three singles made the top 40.

In 1998 Evans released her sophomore album No Place That Far critics slamed her on choosing a more pop/country oriented album. Her first single "Cryin' Game" hardly made a hit on the charts. It would be her next single "No Place That Far," a duet with Vince Gill, that would be her first number one single. The album has been certified gold.

Evans released her "make it or break it" album Born To Fly in 2000. Her first single "Born To Fly" hit the number one spot and proved to be her biggest hit until "Suds in the Bucket." The hits kept coming in as her next single "I Could Not Ask For More" hit the number two spot. "Saints and Angels," Evans favorite song on the album, hit the number sixteen spot and the last single "I Keep Looking" made it to the number five spot. Thus far, the album has been certified double platinum.

Evans lead the pack as the most nominated artist at the 2001 Country Music Association awards with seven nominations, and won her fist CMA award when her song “Born to Fly” won the award for Video of the Year.

In 2003 Evans released Restless. This album showed her versitility as the songs crossed in with different genres such as country, pop, blues, and soul. The albums first single "Backseat of a Greyhound Bus" went to number sixteen. The next single "Perfect" went to number two. The next single "Suds in the Bucket" went to number one and became her biggest hit since "Born to Fly" and quickly became a fan favorite among her songs. The next single "Tonight" failed to reach the top 40. Restless has been certified platinum.

In 2004 Evans was the most played female singer on country music radio thanks to singles such as "Suds in the Bucket" and "Perfect."

In 2005, Sara Evans struck gold with the country ballad "A Real Fine Place to Start". With help from this single her album Real Fine Place was propelled to No.1 on the top of the country charts and No. 3 on the pop charts with over 130,000 copies sold in the first week, nearly triple the sales from her last album debut Restless. Real Fine Place was the best debuting album of her career. The single from the album stood on top of the Billboard and Radio and Record Charts for two weeks. Evans was nominated for two CMA awards, including the prestigious "Female Vocalist of the Year" and prized "Musical Event of the Year" (the latter in part due to her duet with Brad Paisley, "New Again"). However, she lost in both categories. Sara went on the road with Brad Paisley and newcomers Sugarland on Brad's "Time Well Wasted Tour". "Cheatin'" was also a top 10 hit as well . Real Fine Place has recently been certified gold.

On December 6, 2005 Sara released Feels Like Home through Cracker Barrel stores. The album consistes of some of her most memorable songs in different remixes. For example, there is an acoustic version of "No Place That Far," a live version of "Born To Fly," and several other remixes of her most popular songs.

In 2006 R&R announces Sara as Female Vocalist of the Year in its 2006 Readers' Poll. In a recent interview with CMT she also revealed that she would be headlining her own tour in the fall.

As of 2006 she has three children, Avery, Olivia and Audrey.

She has a global music publishing deal with BMG Music Publishing's Nashville division.

After "Cheatin'", her new single off Real Fine Place has been "Coalmine," which was already at #60 before its release date on April 10th.

In Spring, 2006 Sara released Always There through Hallmark stores for Mother's Day. The album has 6 of her favorite already release songs including a live version of "Suds In The Bucket" and an acoustic version of "Born To Fly." Two new songs are also on the disc including "You Ought To Know By Now" and "Brooklyn & Austin."

On May 23rd, 2006, Sara performed her lastest single "Coalmine" and competed at the 2006 ACM Awards in Las Vegas, and she won her first ACM for the "Female Vocalist Of The Year."
