Sara EvansSara Evans has devoted 2010 to making music and plans to finish her new album, which she's been recording with producer Nathan Chapman, who's perhaps best known for his work with Taylor Swift. Sara and husband Jay Barker, former University of Alabama quarterback and current radio host, have decided the singer needs to focus on her career at this point.

"I got married in 2008," Sara tells The Boot. "And 2009 was a total year of relocating to Birmingham, meeting all new people, blending our seven kids together, setting up house, redecorating the house, finding help in Birmingham, and getting all that stuff situated. So it was hard for me to really find the time to write. Jay and I both have said for the last two or three months that 2010 is totally the year that is going to be completely focused on the record and the music career, because we're settled. We're in place. We're ready to launch."
