A CountryMusic singer who rose to fame at the TurnOfTheMillennium, bringing twangy vocals and a slick country-pop sound.

Sara Evans was born in Boonville, Missouri and moved to Nashville in TheNineties, signing a deal with Creator/RCARecords Nashville after songwriter Harlan Howard heard her demo tape, which included a cover of Music/BuckOwens' "I've Got a Tiger by the Tail". Her debut album ''Three Chords and the Truth'' was critically lauded for a traditional twangy sound, but none of its singles were well-received by radio.

Her breakthrough came in 1998 with ''No Place That Far'', whose Music/VinceGill-backed title track became her first #1 hit. But it was ''Born to Fly'' in 2000 that sent her into stardom, pushing her to a bigger and more pop-influenced sound while not entirely abandoning her country roots. The title track of "Born to Fly" remains one of her biggest hits, along with a cover of Edwin [=McCain=]'s "I Could Not Ask for More". ''Restless'' (2003) had more than two years' worth of singles on it, including "Suds in the Bucket", followed by ''Real Fine Place'' in 2005 with its own title track, a cover of Radney Foster's "A Real Fine Place to Start".

Around the release of her ''Greatest Hits'' album, she began to see diminishing returns on the charts, and her sixth studio album ''Stronger'' was delayed due to its originally-intended lead single "Feels Just Like a Love Song" being withdrawn. "A Little Bit Stronger", co-written by Music/LadyAntebellum's co-lead singer Hillary Scott, went on to become her last big hit.

Evans' big hits chronicle themes of love ("No Place That Far"), ambition ("Born to Fly"), elopement ("Suds in the Bucket"), and overcoming failed relationships ("A Little Bit Stronger"). ''Allmusic'' wrote that she "imbues radio ready songs with neo-traditional flair."

* ChristmasSongs: ''At Christmas'' (2014) is all covers of traditional holiday fare, save for the title track.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Her debut album was extremely twangy traditional country, including covers of Music/BuckOwens and Patsy Cline. It was also produced by Pete Anderson, best known for his work with Music/DwightYoakam. All of her subsequent albums have had a much poppier sound.
* Elopement: In "Suds in the Bucket", a young woman elopes with her man, leaving "the suds in the bucket and the clothes hangin' out on the line".
* FemaleGaze: Occurs in "As If": "I love the way you wear those worn out blue jeans / Walkin' all around in the hot sunshine".
* RomanticHyperbole: "No Place That Far":
-->If I had to run\\
If I had to crawl\\
If I had to swim a hundred rivers\\
Just to climb a thousand walls\\
Always know that I would find a way\\
To get to where you are\\
Baby, there's no place that far
* SelfBackingVocalist: She sings a round with herself at the end of "Coalmine".
* ShoutOut:
** "I Keep Looking" has the lyric "I keep wondering what's on the other side of the #2 door", a reference to ''Series/LetsMakeADeal''.
** "A Real Fine Place to Start" references Music/TomPetty's "Runnin' Down a Dream".
* ThreeChordsAndTheTruth: The title of her debut album.
* TruckDriversGearChange: "No Place That Far" goes from C Major to D Major on the last chorus.
* YourCheatingHeart: "Cheatin'" makes fun of her man, pointing out that he's now living in a rundown trailer and driving a beat-up car because he had been cheating.
