When she was a little girl, she sang in her family’s band, and now Sara Evans is nurturing that same budding musical talent in her own children. And they’re pretty darn good!
Sara’s eldest daughter, Olivia, proved she had quite the chops when she stepped up for her famous mom in the recording studio to add some vocal embellishments on Sara’s latest single, “Marquee Sign.” Then she provided background vocals when Sara appeared on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” in July.
Now, in a video on Sara’s Instagram page, we discover that her oldest child, son Avery, is also a singer and a guitar player as well. The trio—Avery, Olivia and mom Sara—perform an acoustic version of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams,” but instead of giving the lead vocals to the proven superstar, Livy takes them. Mom sings high harmonies and Avery takes the low end and guitar accompaniment. And it is magic.
Actually, if Avery and Olivia officially join their mom’s band, they won’t be the first family members to go on the road with Sara. Her brother, Matt, has been the band leader from the beginning of her career, and sister Lesley is also on the road with them. Sister Ashley helped Sara record her new album, “Words,” that came out July 21.
There’s no word on whether or not youngest daughter Audrey will join the family business as well, but since school has started, both she and Olivia have another obligation besides touring. It looks like most of Sara’s show dates are on the weekends, though, so it is possible that the kiddos could join her.
