Sara Evans

I am Sara Evans. I was born in Boonville, Missouri in 1971 and raised near New Franklin, Missouri. When I was five I was singing on weekends in my family’s band. When I was 8 I suffered many fractures in my leg multiple times. Then when I was 16 I began performing at nightclubs. In 1991 I moved to Nashville, Tennessee to become a country music artist. In 1997 I created my first album Three Chords and the Truth. Then in 2000 my album Fool, I’m a Woman won the top 40 country hits. In 2001 I was nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year at the Country Music Association awards and in 2002 I won first place in the CMA award. I’m still alive and still singing but I am 54 years old.
