Sara Evans Plans Virtual Book Tour in Support of New Memoir, “Born to Fly”

On Sept. 8, Sara Evans will release her new memoir, Born to Fly, which takes its name from her 2000 studio album—and No. 1 single—of the same name. Drawing on stories from her own life, the upcoming book finds Sara sharing “wisdom on topics ranging from motherhood and marriage to finding your purpose.”

“I am so excited to release my memoir this year,” says Sara. “With 2020 being the 20th anniversary of my Born to Fly album release, which was such a pivotal project for me and my career on so many levels, this book really brings everything full circle. I am so proud of how it all came together and can’t wait to share it with everyone.”

To celebrate the book’s release, Sara will be taking part in a virtual book tour that kicks off on Sept. 2. During each virtual visit, Sara will discuss the memoir with a local host and take questions from fans. The first 100 fans to purchase the book at the bookstore events will receive a signed book from Sara.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
