Sara Evans

Born on February 5, 1971 in Boonville, Missouri, Sara Lynn Evans grew up on a farm, among seven siblings, of whom she was the eldest. It was a painful experience that sparked her passion for music. At the age of eight, she was trapped by a car and suffered multiple fractures to her legs. To pay for her rehabilitation, she decided to take up singing. At the age of 20, she moved to Nashville to become a country singer. She recorded her first demos in 1995, which convinced the artistic directors of RCA Nashville. The label released her first album in 1997, Three Chords and the Truth, followed by No Place That Far, which went gold. Its successor, Born to Fly, was released in 2000, powered by the drumming of Matt Chamberlain, the Seattle drummer hired for the occasion. The eponymous single reached number one on Billboard's Hot Country Songs Top 40. The album's success is such that it is certified platinum, and the singer is nominated seven times by the Country Music Association. Her success continued with the following opuses, Restless, which reached number 20 on the Billboard charts, and Real Fine Place, which marked her consecration by reaching number three on the Billboard Hot 100. It was at this stage of her career that the artist decided to publish her first best-of, Greatest Hits. Alongside her musical activities, she became politically active, supporting Texan Ron Paul in the 2008 presidential race, and became involved in causes close to her heart, such as the fight against eating disorders, having suffered from them herself in the past. After releasing an EP for Christmas 2009, I'll Be Here for Christmas, the artist unveiled Stronger in 2011, which went straight to #1 on Billboard's country chart. After a seventh album in 2014, Slow Me Down, the artist went independent from RCA Nashville, releasing the following records, Words (2017) and Copy That (2020) on the Born to Fly label. Copy That benefits from production by Jarrad K., responsible for albums by the Goo Goo Dolls and Weezer, and establishes the artist's catchy country-pop formula. In 2023, the singer took part in The Masked Singer . The following year, she chronicled her marital troubles on the album Unbroke, led by the single "Pride", which reached number 60 in the Canadian country charts.
