Before marrying University of Alabama football star-turned-sportscaster Jay Barker on June 14, 2008, country music artist Sara Evans was married to aspiring politician Craig Schelske. That marriage, which ended in an extremely messy divorce on September 28, 2007, produced three beautiful children— son Avery Jack (1999) and daughters Olivia Margaret (2003) and Audrey Elizabeth (2004).
Sara and her three children relocated to Mountain Brook, Alabama, to reside with Barker and his four children with former wife Amy DiGiovanna— Andrew (1999), Braxton (2000), and twins Sarah Ashlee and Harrison (2001). After nearly a decade as a family unit, the blended family seems more bonded than ever!

While scanning though Sara Evans’ very active Instagram account, you can’t help but notice how much daughters Olivia and Audrey take after their gorgeous mother as they get older! Here’s the photographic proof of the jaw-dropping similarities…
First, a super sweet throwback of the dark-haired trio.

Besides being a carbon copy of her famous mother, eldest daughter Olivia is also following in her footsteps! The country star just launched her own label, Born To Fly Records, and her upcoming album Words will feature the 14-year-old singing back-up vocals. The album is set to release on July 21, 2017 and limited edition autographed album pre-orders are available now at SaraEvans.com. Pretty impressive for a teenager!
Besides music, Olivia is also getting used to life in front of the camera and recently completed her very first professional photo shoot.
It will be interesting to see if any of the Evans-Barker brood go the country music route as a full-fledged career. Only time will tell! Until then, we’ll just enjoy watching these kids grow into young adults.
Be sure to share this with other fans of the Missouri native and keep your eyes peeled for more updates regarding her new record.
