Multi-platinum entertainer Sara Evans is at the top of her game. As the fifth most-played female artist at country radio in nearly the last two decades — her five number-one singles include “No Place That Far,” “Suds In The Bucket, “A Real Fine Place To Start,” “Born to Fly,” and “A Little Bit Stronger,” which spent two weeks in the top spot and was certified platinum by the R.I.A.A.

Sara’s “stunning, country voice” (Rolling Stone) has earned her the prestigious Academy of Country Music Top Female vocalist accolade, as well as numerous American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, Country Music Association, CMT and Grammy Awards nominations. In addition, the CMA awarded Video of the Year honors for her hit chart-topping single, “Born to Fly” from her landmark double-platinum album of the same name. Evans’ discography also includes the platinum-selling studio albums Real Fine Place and Restless as well as the gold-certified projects Stronger and No Place That Far.

Evans has continued to forge her bold, creative path with Copy That, which opened at number one on the iTunes Country chart, released on her own Born To Fly Records in 2020. The 13-song collection, spanning six decades, showcased Evans’ distinctive creative stamp on some of the most iconic songs in country and pop music, songs that have inspired her life and career, as well as shining a spotlight on some little-known gems. Copy That follows her critically acclaimed Words, which debuted at number two on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart in 2017. She also spends time working on album and touring collaborations with her children, Avery and Olivia Barker, for The Barker Family Band.

Sara released her memoir, Born To Fly, in 2020 through Howard Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. Named after her landmark double-platinum album, Born To Fly finds Evans opening up and sharing stories not only about her career and what it is like living in the spotlight, but about what inspires her and how her faith keeps her strong. Also in early 2020, Evans and her family moved back to Nashville after spending the past 11 years near Birmingham. The Missouri native will officially be inducted into the Grand Ole Opry Oct. 7 following an invitation earlier this year.
