MPAC Presents Sara Evans
originally published: 10/09/2019
(MORRISTOWN, NJ) -- Multi-platinum country singer Sara Evans will perform her hits at Mayo Performing Arts Center on Friday, November 8 at 8:00pm. One of the most compelling vocalists of her generation, Evans, an Academy of Country Music Award winner, has charted over 20 times, including such hits as "A Little Bit Stronger," "Born to Fly," "Perfect," and "Suds in the Bucket." Tickets range from $39-$79.
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 singing 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.
Smitten with country's legacy, her version of Buck Owens' "I've Got A Tiger By The Tail" won the approval of songwriter Harlan Howard - a Country Music Hall of Fame member who authored Patsy Cline's "I Fall To Pieces" and The Judds' "Why Not Me" - and of George Jones, who personally invited her to open for him at the historic Ryman Auditorium on the strength of her first album.
In addition to her music, Evans has co-authored a trio of books for Thomas Nelson; advocated on behalf of the Red Cross; became an active contributor to the community in Birmingham, Alabama, where she's lived with husband Jay Barker for nearly a decade; and established a lifestyle blog that captures her flare for fashion, beauty and cooking. That blog also demonstrates that she understands, and lives, the solid, practical American work ethic that's alive and well in her fan base.
