Country Music Success Stories

I grew up on a farm with the clothes line in the backyard and I knew that millions of Americans would relate to that. As much as I love New York and L.A, I am really a spokesperson for middle America and the girl next door. -Sara Evans Every trip to Nashville is filled with non-stop adventure. Jacy and I spend weeks planning our interviews and when we got word that Sara Evans had agreed to share her story with us, we did have a bit of a fan moment. With 5 number 1 songs, the ACM Award for Top Female Vocalist, a CMA for Video of the Year, Grammy, Billboard, BMI, R&R, CMA & ACM nominations, and 10 studio albums, Sara Evans is a success story by any standard, but it is her personal story, shared with Jacy and me, as we sat together on cozy couches, tucked away on the third floor of the colonial style home she shares with her 3 children, that really blew us away. Turns out, the girl next door who sang Suds in the Bucket really did grow up on a farm in Missouri, with the clothes hanging out on the line and she has been planning her success story since she was 5 years old.

Her genuine and resilient spirit will leave you inspired. SHOW NOTES: Sara grew up on her family's tobacco farm in the rural Missouri town of New Franklin where she describes her childhood as idyllic yet simple "Family is the most important thing in the world, besides a relationship with God."  Understanding God's protection: At 8 years old, Sara was struck by a car, thrown 80 feet and suffered multiple broken bones and head trauma. As a mom, Sara made sacrifices in her career to be present in her children's life including not missing a Friday night football game of her son's. "Whenever possible, put your family first." Her song Letting You Go was written about watching her oldest son, who now plays guitar in her band, grow into an adult.  Sara credits her resiliency to her relationship with God and standing up for her beliefs while still showing love.
