'I Could Not Ask for More'

From: 'Born to Fly' (2000)
 
 

Hit songwriter Diane Warren wrote this song, which was first released by pop artist Edwin McCain before Sara released her own version in 2001. Singing, "These are the moments I know Heaven must exist / These are the moments I know all I need is this," Evans took this love song all the way to No. 2 on the country charts.

 
Sara Evans Restless

'Perfect'

From: Restless' (2003)
 
 

Evans co-wrote this song about letting go of lofty ideals of love. Singing, "If I'd rather wear your t-shirt than a sexy negligee / It's all right, it's all right / Every dinner doesn't have to be candlelit / It's kinda nice to know that it doesn't have to be perfect," Sara makes "rough around the edges [and] tattered at the seams" seem sexy.

'Backseat of a Greyhound Bus'

From: 'Restless' (2003)
 
 

This tale of an unwanted pregnancy turns into a love story between mother and newborn baby, all unfolding in the backseat of a Greyhound bus. In one of her most powerful vocal performances ever, Sara surprises with the happy ending you don't see coming, earning it a spot in the Top 10 Sara Evans Songs.

 
Sara Evans Restless
7

'Suds in the Bucket'

From: 'Restless' (2003)
 
 

Sometimes princes show up riding in white pick-up trucks instead of on white horses -- at least they do in this chart-topping hit. The song tells the tale of an 18-year old who runs away with her truck-driving boyfriend, leaving the "suds in the bucket and the clothes hangin' out on the line." They head straight to Las Vegas, leaving the "biddys in the beauty shop" with the "gossip goin' non-stop."

 
The Passion of the Christ
6

'New Again'

From: 'The Passion of the Christ' (2004)
 
 

Sara sang this Christian tune with label-mate Brad Paisley for Mel Gibson's Oscar-nominated film, 'The Passion of the Christ.' Singing, "God, how can this be your will / To have your son and my son be killed," Sara and Paisley's delivery of this emotionally charged ballad still brings tears to our eyes, all these years later.

 
Sara Evans Real Fine Place
5

'Cheatin''

From: 'Real Fine Place' (2005)
 
 

First appearing on her No. 1 album, 'Real Fine Place,' this reminder of the repercussions of cheating also showed up on her 'Greatest Hits' CD. With lines like, "How do you like that beat up car / I think it's fair we traded / Your pick-up truck is running fine / It's a cozy ride for datin'," philanderers should take this song as a warning.

 
Warren Brothers King of Nothing
4

'That's the Beat of a Heart'

From: Warren Brothers, 'King of Nothing' (2000)
 
 

Sara sang on this gorgeous duet with the Warren Brothers on their 2000 sophomore album, 'King of Nothing.' Though the tune didn't make a major impact at radio, it was prominently featured in the blockbuster movie, 'Where the Heart Is,' starring Natalie Portman and Ashley Judd, and more than deserves a mention as one of the Top 10 Sara Evans Songs.

 
Sara Evans A Little Bit Strnger
3

'A Little Bit Stronger'

From: 'Stronger' (2010)
 
 

The first single from 'Stronger,' this song empowers anyone going through a break-up to pick up the pieces and move on. "I know my heart will never be the same / But I'm telling myself I'll be OK / Even on my weakest days / I get a little bit stronger," Sara sings in a tune that showcases her powerful vocal range. Written by Luke Laird, Hillary Lindsey and Hillary Scott from Lady Antebellum, the song was also featured in the movie 'Country Strong.'

 
Sara Evans Born to Fly
2

'Born to Fly'

From: 'Born to Fly' (2000)
 
 

"I've been telling my dreams to the scarecrow / About the places that I'd like to see," are the opening lyrics of what's perhaps Sara's biggest sing-along song, with fans screaming the lyrics as loud as the brunette beauty at her live shows. Co-written by Evans, the tune, with an accompanying video that features her as Dorothy from the epic film 'Wizard of Oz,' makes fans want to spread their wings, too.

 
Sara Evans No Place That Far
1

'No Place That Far'

From: 'No Place That Far' (1998)
 
 

Featuring the flawless background vocals of Vince Gill, this was Sara's first No. 1 single, and one she had a hand in writing. Blissfully in love, she promises to "swim a hundred rivers just to climb a thousand walls" to get to the one she loves. After releasing four songs that failed to chart at radio, it was this 1998 hit that made America fall in love with the stand-out singer -- and her songwriting prowess.
