Seventeen years ago this week, Sara Evans proved that she was, indeed, born to fly. On March 6, 1999, the chart-topping songstress reached new heights when “No Place That Far” soared to Number 1. The feat marked the first Number 1 for Sara.
Vince Gill supplied harmonies on the track, which was written by Tony Martin and Tom Shapiro, and helped Sara earn her first CMA Award nomination, as well (Vocal Event of the Year). Sara didn’t stop there, as she later saw three more singles rise to Number 1, even after a six-year hiatus between the releases of Real Fine Place and Stronger.
Happy Career Milestone Anniversary to Sara Evans! You have certainly grown to be stronger as the years go on and we cannot wait to see what’s next for you!
