Sara Evans Tickets for Sale

Once Sara Evans found her sound, everything fell into place. The RCA Records artist's 2000 album Born to Fly was a dazzling listening experience, full of unexpected textures, inventive percussion and acoustic instrumentation. Its blend of rootsy rhythms and production polish placed her heart-in-throat vocals and vivid lyrics in audio settings that were a leap ahead of what everybody else on Music Row was creating. Now approaching Double Platinum status, that record made her a star.

She follows it this year with Restless, a collection of songs that takes Sara Evans up yet another notch. Again co-producing with Paul Worley, she has co-written some of the finest songs of her career and paired them with challenging and innovative works by other writers.
"I look at this record now that it's done and see that I have put all kinds of wonderful ‘messages' in here," Evans reflects. "With Born to Fly, I grew a lot. Going into the studio again, I just kind of felt like I was on top of the world. And I think that had a lot to do with my confidence to try these new sounds. I wanted to co-produce… it's my record. I've got to be there because if I'm not then it's my own fault if I don't like it. I guess I may be somewhat a control freak when it comes to my music but now that I have one platinum record I want five of them."

"Backseat of a Greyhound Bus," the album's lead-off single, is a celebration of life from the point of view of an unwed mom who finds true love holding her new baby girl. "To Be Happy" is a wish for universal good will. "Rocking Horse," featuring harmony vocals by Vince Gill, teaches us to see something magical even when things seem the most frightening. "Suds in the Bucket" is a down-home country romp that twangs a humorous tale of impulsive teenage love.

Sara Evans (born February 5, 1971, in Boonville, Missouri) is a country music singer. Evans was raised on a farm near New Franklin, Missouri. 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's demo of one of his songs and decided she should be the one to sing his music. She went under contract with RCA.

Evans was the most nominated artist at the 2001 Country Music Association awards, and won her fist CMA award when her song "Born to Fly" won the award for Video of the Year. Evans performed at the Republican National Convention on August 23, 2004. She has three children, Avery, Olivia and Audrey. Evans filled in for LeAnn Rimes on the TV show Nashville Star.
