Sara Evans

She’s had five #1 singles, sold millions of records, won the Academy of Country Music’s Top Female Vocalist Award and claimed a Country Music Association trophy for her signature song, “Born ToFly.” It’s tough to imagine many accomplishments Sara Evans hasn’t already checked off her bucket list.And yet, with the release of her eighth studio album, Wordsdemonstrates that she’s still willing to leap into the unknown, taking greater control of her career and calling the shots in a way that’s unusual in country music –particularly unusual for a woman in the genre. Words is the first project on Evans’ own label: Born To Fly Records, appropriately named after that CMA-winning signature song, which celebrated risk and adventure. Much is familiar about Words. Evans’ voice is warm and strong, the songs are authentic and memorable, and the actual words themselves resonate withthe realitiesof everyday life.But the album was an eye-opening experience for Evans as a creative force. As the head of her own small, flexible company, she was able to take a streamlined approach to building it.

Instead of subjecting the music to multiple departments, each with their own view of one part of her career, Evansapproached it with an instinctual, gut-level focus on making a project that represents the 2017 version of Sara Evans. “The only thing I had on my mind with this album is just Grammy-level songs and the coolest music that I can find,” she says. “I didn’t really go about it in any other way. I wasn’t catering to any part of the business. There was never a thought in my head of ‘Will this work on country radio?’ So what has happened with the music is that it is still very much Sara Evans music. It’s just alittle bit deeper than I’ve gone in the past.”There’s an irony there –part of the reason that Sara Evans is one of country’s iconic modern singers is that her music has worked so well on country radio, at concert halls and amphitheaters, and in fans’ personal playlists. And the music she’s made to date is authentically her. But where Born To Fly narrowed the crowd of voices around her, Words isdistinctively Sara Evans. For a woman who always tackled the music her own way, the new albumis 100% her own.It’s a big reason that the album is titled Words. The songs generate a number of words –flexible, commanding, sassy, daring, loving, hopeful, resilient –that all embody parts of Evans’ inimitable person
