Multi-talented entertainer SARA EVANS, whose No. 1 hits include “No Place That Far,” “Suds In The Bucket, “A Real Fine Place To Start,” “Born to Fly,” and “A Little Bit Stronger,” has announced the launch of her own record label – BORN TO FLY RECORDS. Named for her chart-topping single and double-platinum “eclectic” (Entertainment Weekly) album of the same name which earned her the CMA Video of the Year trophy, the label, distributed via SONY RED, will be the home of Evans’ brand new album set to release this summer. The highly anticipated album from the ACM Female Vocalist of the Year will mark her eighth studio project, following her critically acclaimed Slow Me Down which debuted at #2 on the Country Albums Chart and landed in the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart in 2014, winning over fans and media alike and dubbed her best album to date.
“I’m extremely excited to be launching this venture and I love that the label is ‘Born To Fly.’ I wrote that song about my own life, coming to Nashville and following my dreams,” said Evans. “It’s a dream come true to surround myself with my own team and truly embrace my entrepreneurial spirit, taking complete control of my career and brand is so freeing. I can’t wait to share this new project with everyone!”
Details about the new album will be revealed in the coming weeks. Fans can catch up with Sara on the road with dates booked throughout the year. For more details, check out saraevans.com.
