Sara Evans Quotes
I almost lost my best friend to anorexia. I am lending my voice as an entertainer, a mom, and a friend because I want to bring great awareness to this cause.
[Like her friends Faith Hill and Martina McBride, Sara says she never sleeps. No time for pedicures and manicures, either.] Women are multi-taskers, ... Craig can only do one thing at a time. If he tends to the kids, that's all he does ... whereas I hold the baby in my lap and do a radio interview.
"I see the most depressing town that you've ever been to, where there's only one thing to do, and that's go to work at the factory, get married and have kids. This girl was so afraid that she was going to die there. 'Sing a Bible song over me' obviously means her funeral. She just wasn't going to put up with that life, and so she ran. Lori McKenna is very cool. She writes really differently ... very abstract. The song means something to her, but you have to interpret it in your own way and figure out your own way to relate to it.
