It looks like Sara Evans’ eldest daughter is following in her mama’s footsteps.

Olivia Evans, 14, joined her famous mom on the set of “Live With Kelly & Ryan” on July 25 to help perform the country singer’s brand new single, “Marquee Sign.”

This was Olivia’s first time performing on live television, so it’s understandable that she would have a little bit of performance anxiety. However, she kept her nerves under control, and handled her role like a pro!


The video above shows the brunette teenager standing alongside a more seasoned singer, and offering background vocals on her lookalike mother’s wishful tune. Meanwhile, Sara leads by example, showing her middle child how to work the studio audience with her stage presence, while belting out all the right notes.

Toward the end of the performance, Sara gives Olivia the floor and she delivers some impressive vocal runs, proving that she is, indeed, her mother’s child.
