Sara Evans has always had

music in her soul.
When she was five, she sang with
her family band in their small town
in Missouri. A few years later, she was
struck by a car and became temporarily
wheelchair-bound. Singing became
a way to help her family pay the
medical bills.
When she was 26, Evans released
her first album, “Three Chords and The
Truth,” which introduced her as a rising
force in the country music scene. Eight
albums and multiple awards later, Evans
is ready to make the leap from country
to other genres.
“When I came onto the country
music scene, it was so diverse,” Evans
commented. “You could hear a traditional
