Country star Sara Evans was born in Boonville, Missouri on this day in 1971. Evans rose to fame in the late 1990s and continued to be a pioneering force in country music throughout the 2000s and 2010s. The Missouri native’s signature hits include “Born to Fly,” “Suds In The Bucket,” and “A Little Bit Stronger.” In celebration of this superstar’s birthday, we are looking back at five Evans songs you may have missed.
1. “Words” from the album Words (2017)
“Say the words and I’ll be gone/ Turn our perfect lights into another sad song/ I won’t keep you here/ Keep holding on to what we were/ Just say the words.”
2. “All The Love You Left Me” from the album Words (2017)
“What am I supposed to do with all the love you left me?”
3. “Rockin’ Horse” from the album Restless (2003)
“The rocking horse came/ From an old oak tree/ Just missed the house/ When it was hit by lightning/ My daddy painted that horse/ A midnight blue.”
4. “Can’t Stop Loving You” featuring Issac Slade of The Fray from the album Slow Me Down (2014)
“’Cause I can’t stop/ No, I can’t stop/ No, I can’t stop loving you/ I can’t stop loving you/ Baby, even if I wanted to.”
5. “Anywhere” from the album Stronger (2011)
“Yeah, we can go anywhere, I don’t care/ California, Mississippi/ All the way to New York City / As long as you’re ridin’ shotgun with me.”
Happy Birthday, Sara Evans!
