By 16, Evans was a club performer in a nightclub in Columbia, Missouri.
She moved to Nashville, Tennessee when she was 20 with the hope of becoming a bigger musician.
A tragedy struck at the age of 8 which led to her determination to become a singer.
An automobile accident forced her to sit on a wheelchair and sing to make up her medical bills.
The pending divorce has lead to her withdrawal from the popular ABC show, “Dancing With The Stars.” When news broke late Thursday night that country singer Sara Evans had quit “Dancing With the Stars” for personal reasons, it left many fans scratching their heads.
Sara Evans was born Sara Lynn Evans in Boonville, Missouri on February 5, 1971 and led a life on a farm with six other siblings.
Her large family formed a band and she was made the lead singer.
She has been granted a temporary restraining order against Schelske, which prohibits him from harrassing Sara, being intoxicated in front of their children and taking them to Oregon.
She was also granted temporary custody of the children and possession of the couple’s home in Franklin, Tennessee.
