Sara Evans is an American country tune singer and musician well-known in the public eye. She has made over eight studio albums and a Christmas CD to this point. As of this handwriting, she has sold over 2 million copies of her album Born to Fly, certified 2x-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The Billboard Hot Country Songs listed over 20 of her songs. However, none of the songs from her debut album cracked the Top 40.
Sara was born in 1971, and her forefathers include Welsh, English, Irish, and Native American. Sara Evans was born in Boonville, Missouri, and grew up in New Franklin, Missouri. She was the oldest of six siblings. She began singing weekends in her family’s band of five, and at ten, she recorded her first single in Nashville, which she subsequently attempted to sell at Fan Fair.
Later, in 1991, she moved to Nashville to continue her career as a country music singer-songwriter. Craig Schelske, a fellow musician she met in Nashville, persuaded her to travel to Oregon with him in 1992. When she returned to Nashville in 1995, she married him and began making demos. Harlan Howard assists her music career by getting her a deal with RCA Nashville after listening to her demo tape and being impressed by the song she sent in.
In 1993, she married Craig, a political candidate, and the couple had three children. It is revealing that she married Craig in 2006. She claims against him that he was unemployed for a long time and abused her when alcoholic. Her husband accused her husband of having many affairs, including one with country singer Kenny Chesney. He denied everything his wife claimed.
Schelske awards physical custody of her three children and orders to pay her maintenance of $500,000 per year for the next ten years following the divorce’s completion in 2007. A $3 million lawsuit from Evans’ former also fills against her, claiming that she was falsely accused of having an affair with Craig. Following a settlement of $500,000 in July 2009, the case was closed.
When Jay Barker, a former quarterback at the University of Alabama, won the national title in 2007 married Evans in 2008, it was a big deal. They married in Franklin, and Evans currently lives in Mountain Brook, Alabama, with her three children.
