Album:Playlist: The Very Best Of Sara Evans
Sara Evans has had five number one country hits including A Real Fine Place To Start in 2005. After a messy divorce, she returned to the top of the country charts in 2011. She was born Feb. 7, 1971 in Boonville, MO. As a child, she sang with her family's band. And as a teen, she sang in local clubs. Sara moved to Nashville in 1991 and then moved to Oregon and married Craig Schelske in 1993. Sara returned to Nashville in 1995 and one of her demos got the attention of veteran songwriter Harlan Howard. He got her a deal with RCA Nashville and Dwight Yoakam's producer Pete Anderson. He produced Sara's 1997 debut CD Three Chords and the Truth. Though Sara was praised for her traditional country sound, it may have been a little too traditional to catch on. They went in a more pop direction for her 1998 CD No Place Too Far and the single No Place Too Far was Sara's first number one country hit. Her 2000 CD Born To Fly was certified 2XPlatinum and the single Born To Fly topped the charts. The success continued with the 2003 CD Restless and the single Suds In The Bucket which is probably her signature song. Sara worked with Rascal Flatts producer Mark Bright on her 2005 CD Real Fine Place which was certified Platinum. A Real Fine Place To Start was her fourth country music chart topper. The song was written by Radney Foster and George Ducas. Foster recorded it on his 2002 CD Another Way To Go. Ducas toured with Sara as her opening act. After releasing CDs through Cracker Barrel and Hallmark followed a Greatest Hits CD, Sara went through a messy divorce with Schelske that was mostly blamed on her lawyer. Schelske sued her lawyer and he apologized for his behaviour. She married radio host Jay Barker in 2008 and moved to his hometown of Birmingham, AL with her three kids. Her next CD Stronger was released in 2011 and A Little Bit Stronger was her fifth number one country hit. The CD Slow Me Down was released Mar. 2014 and last month Christmas was released exclusively through Walmart. You can get all her hits on this budget comp. Sara has been appearing on TV to promote these CDs and will begin a tour in February. Here's the video for A Real Fine Place To Start by Sara Evans.
