Evans’ Born to Fly Soars to Platinum

Sara Evans was surprised with a platinum album award Sunday night (July 15) backstage of the Girls’ Night Out show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The award was presented to Evans by RCA top brass Joe Galante and Butch Waugh for selling more than a million copies of her third album, Born to Fly. The album is her first to reach platinum status. Fittingly, her currrent single is called “I Could Not Ask for More.” Evans was deeply moved by the reaction of band members, crew, family and friends that greeted with her wild applause and shouts of congratulations. 07/17/01
