(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)
Sara Evans really thinks you ought to read her latest book, Love Lifted Me , which she wrote with Rachel Hauck. It’s the third in her series about the character Jade Benson. “If you haven’t read the book, you need to go read it,” she told CMT Radio. “It’s very much a story about overcoming, forgiveness, redemption and really understanding the whole idea behind, ‘Human beings will always let you down but God never will.’” She also says that her songs tell stories, but that the books do so in a different way, by looking backward while moving forward. “It’s about chasing dreams, endless country roads, and tender faith,” she said. Evans’ own personal life has had its share of chasing dreams (and a few letdowns), so I’m sure she tells this story from her heart.
