ARTIST BIO

Over the years, Sara Evans has developed a reputation for delivering albums full of great songs brought to life by her distinctive voice. She's sold nearly six million records and her last four albums have been certified gold, platinum or multi-platinum. She's scored five No. 1 hits, among them "Suds in the Bucket," "A Real Fine Place to Start," "No Place That Far" and "A Little Bit Stronger." That single was No. 1 for two weeks and was certified platinum by the R.I.A.A. Sara has amassed an impressive collection of awards, including Female Vocalist from the Academy of Country Music and Video of the Year from the Country Music Association for her clip "Born to Fly."

At the root of all those accolades is a God-given talent fueled by an impressive Midwestern work ethic instilled by her parents. She grew up singing in her family's band and then moved to Nashville looking for a record deal. Legendary songwriter Harlan Howard heard her on a demo and helped open a door for her at RCA Records, where she's been ever since. "I've always felt like I'm a very lucky person," says Sara. "To be given a gift to sing, I don't know why the Lord has blessed me with this talent, but it has always made me feel lucky. I always appreciate those special moments like having a No. 1 record or doing a great show."

In addition to her music, Sara is an accomplished author of three books with co-writer Rachel Hauck and writes a lifestyle blog, "A Real Fine Place," with her sister-in-law Kaelin "K.K" Evans, where they share their passion for fashion, beauty, travel and food. She was the first country artist to compete on ABC's Dancing with the Stars and she's been named one of People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People." A tireless philanthropist, Sara is involved in several charitable endeavors and has been awarded the Crystal Cross by the American Red Cross.  Last year she and husband Jay Barker launched Rock the South. The festival attracted 50,000 country music fans and raised money for the Children's Hospital of Birmingham and Alabama Forever, a charity formed to help rebuild the areas in Alabama that were struck by devastating tornados.
