Country music’s Evans enjoying her stardom

SHARE Country music’s Evans enjoying her stardom

Sara Evans' dance card is filled.

The country music sensation is sharing the stage through August with one of her idols, remodeling a recently purchased farm house in Oregon and preparing for her son's second birthday, all while she supports her second hit from her current album.

Evans helped kick off the national Girls' Night Out tour Friday, featuring an all-female bill including Reba McEntire. It will play in 25 cities through August.

"Reba is my total idol," Evans said. "I haven't had a chance to tell her what her music means to me. But I can't believe I'm actually on stage with Reba McEntire."

Evans attributes her newfound stardom to the success of her current album, "Born to Fly," and the song of the same title's video.

In addition to Evans and McEntire, the tour features veteran Martina McBride and newcomers Jamie O'Neal and Carolyn Dawn Johnson.
