When Dancing with the Stars debuts for it’s second season, a sweet and successful country singer named Sara Evans will be among the contestants competing for the title. Although the quickness of her feet remains to be seen, the power behind her voice has been evident since her debut a little less than ten years ago.
1.Backseat of a Greyhound Bus, Restless
With a catchy chorus and a powerful voice, Evans does a great job on this song. However, it didn’t receive the reception on the radio waves as expected. It peaked at number 16.
On the backseat of a Greyhound bus,
Head on down with the windows up.
Starin’ at the rest of her life.
She never thought this would be the place,
Where she would find her savin’ grace,
But she fell in love; she fell in love,
On the backseat of a Greyhound Bus.
2.Suds in the Bucket, from Restless
Another catchy country song. This propelled to the top of the charts with ease. It gave Evans her second number one song after the massive success of “Born to Fly”
How could 18 years just up and walk away
Our little pony-tailed girl growed up to be a woman
Now she’s gone in the blink of an eye
She left the suds in the bucket
And the clothes hangin’ out on the line
3.Born to Fly, from Born to Fly
One great song. It’s that one song when it comes on the radio you roll the windows down (even in the middle of winter) and belt it out like a back up singer. It’s upbeat, has a great message and brings a huge smile to your face. This song hit number one on the charts.
But how do you wait for heaven
And who has that much time
And how do you keep your feet on the ground
When you know, that you were born, you were born to fly
4.A Real Fine Place to Start, from Real Fine Place
This song is super significant in the Sara Evans category. It not only reached number one on the singles chart, but the strength of the single crossed over to the pop charts as well-moving the album to number 3 on the pop charts! It also made her a safe bet for a Country Music Award.
Holdin’ you close, chasin’ that moon.
spinnin’ all night,
lovin’ just who you are:
sparks flyin’ in the dark.
shootin’ out lights, huntin’ down dreams,
figurin’ out what love really means:
baby givin’ you my heart,
is a real fine place to start.
5.I Keep Looking, Born to Fly
I keep looking, I keep looking for
I keep looking for something more
I always wonder what’s on the other side
Of the number two door
I keep looking
Looking for something more
Catchy tune, hit number 2 on the charts.
Baby every little piece
Of the puzzle doesn’t always fit
Love can be rough around the edges tattered at the seams
But honey if it’s good enough for you
It’s good enough for me
7.Let’s Dance, Born to Fly
Let’s dance while the lights are shining bright
Let’s dance while the music’s feeling right
Romance till the night is through
You’ll be holding me
Yeah, and I’ll be holding you
8.Saints and Angels, Born to Fly
This is Evan’s self-proclaimed favorite song on the album. Although it is my favorite, commercially it did not receive the success as many of her other songs.
Cause when we’re torn apart
Shattered and scarred
Love has the grace to save us
We’re just two tarnished hearts
When in each other’s arms
We become saints and angels.
9.Cheatin’ Real Fine Place
You say your every day
Is a bad dream that keeps repeatin’
Maybe you should’ve thought about that
When you were cheatin’
10.Coalmine, Real Fine Place
This song is a great song, but did not receive much airplay. People generally thought that the release was too close to the tragedy of the Virginia miners.
Coalmine, covered with dust
T-shirt tied, all muscled up
All mine, head to toe
Come on, come on whistle, blow
Power’s out, well that’s all right
We’ll make love by a miner’s light
Gonna keep him busy ’til it’s time
He goes back to that coalmine
