Sara Evans Biography
Sara Lynn Evans (born February 5, 1971) is a country music singer.
Evans was born in New Franklin, Missouri, and raised on a farm near there, as the oldest girl among seven children. Music always has been a part of her life; by age five she was singing every weekend in her family's band. At age eight, she was struck by an automobile in front of the family home, and both her legs suffered multiple fractures. Recuperating for months in a wheelchair, she continued singing to help pay her medical bills. When she was 16, she began performing at a nightclub near Columbia, Missouri, a gig that lasted two years.
