Personalities | Sara Evans | New Country & The Neo-Traditionalists

(Vocals, b. 1971)

Evans moved to Nashville in 1991, where she met her husband, Craig Schelske. In 1995, her demo of the 1965 Buck Owens hit ‘I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail’, attracted the attention of the song’s writer, Harlan Howard, and led to her signing with RCA Records and her much-hailed traditional country album, Three Chords And The Truth (1997). A consistent chart artist, her number ones have included ‘No Place That Far’ (1998) and ‘A Real Fine Place To Start’ (2005).
