In May 2004, Sara Evans released her chart-topping hit, ?Suds in the Bucket.?
It was the kind of song that the traditional country fan binged on. Heck, so did we!
And in 2011, Sara sang the toe-tapping tune during the return of GAC: Great American Country’s ?Opry Live,? which featured six star-packed shows that kicked off during the month of October.
Taking the Grand Ole Opry stage, the Missouri native powered through the No.1 cut with her honeyed-vocals and subtle rasp. Snapping her fingers along to the beat and clad in a simple white-on-beige outfit, Sara danced across the stage, while we got to soak in a fresh dose of fiddles, mandolins and a smashing guitar solo.
While it?s in the Billy Montana and Jenai penned-tune that a young girl runs off to Vegas, in Sara?s early days ? and before she was a star ? her and her two brothers used to road trip just to see the Grand Ole Opry on weekends. And, apparently getting the chance to take center stage was one dream of Sara’s that was ?No Place That Far.” In due time, she got her moment.
Talk about coming full circle!
