Saras sold millions of records and won the ACM female vocalist award and claimed a CMA trophy for her signature song, Born to Fly With the release of her eighth album, Words demonstrates that shes still willing to leap into the unknown, taking greater control of her career and calling the shots in a way thats unusal in country music- particularly unusual for a woman in the genre.
Words is the first project on Evans own label: Born to Fly Records, appropriately named after that CMA-winning signature song, which celebrated risk and adventure. Evans voice is warm and strong, the songs are authentic and memorable, and the actual words themselves resonate with the realities of everyday life.
Evans co-wrote three of the albulms 14 songs, instinctively picking material along the way that matches her world view. Thirteen additional females racked up writing credits on the project.
A Little Bit Stronger, Evans pensive, heartbreak anthem that spent two weeks at #1 represents a look at the journey thus far, one thats kept her firmly in the forefront of country music for a solid 20 years. Born and raised in Boonville, Missouri, Sara grew up listening- like much of her audience- to a mix of country, pop and rock on the radio. She began signing with the family band when she was five and made her first attempts at recording as a teenager, committing to a creative path with her move to Nashville in 1991.
She clearly learned from experience. Her resume now includes 14 Top 20 country hits, ranging from her reassuring first #1- No Place That Far, featuring background vocals vy Vince Gill- to the neo-traditional Suds in The Bucket to the elegant, spiky pop feel of Slow Me Down.
