5 February 1971, New Franklin, Missouri, USA. Country singer Evans got her start in music by singing with her impoverished rural family from the age of four. In 1992 she married and moved to Oregon, working alongside a band entitled North Santiam. They opened shows for artists including Tim McGraw and Willie Nelson. However, Evans elected to launch a solo career instead, relocating to Nashville to improve her prospects. It was her rendition of the Buck Owens standard, Ive Got A Tiger By The Tail, that triggered her breakthrough. Her version so impressed the songs writer, Harlan Howard, that he secured her a recording contract with RCA Records in 1996. She achieved a strong critical following with her 1997 debut album, Three Chords And The Truth, with several writers noting her flair for composition as well as her self-evident vocal skill. The project was orchestrated by Dwight Yoakam producer Pete Anderson.
