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 just over decade as a family unit, the blended family seems more bonded than ever!
While scanning though the star’s very active Instagram account, you can’t help but notice how much Sara Evans’ daughters Olivia and Audrey take after their gorgeous mother! Here’s the photographic proof of their jaw-dropping similarities…

Besides being a carbon copy of her famous mother, eldest daughter Olivia is also following in her footsteps! The star’s 2017 album Words features the teen singing back-up vocals. Evans and her two oldest children, Olivia and Avery, have also formed a band together called The Barker Family Band. They are currently on a limited engagement acoustic tour and released The Barker Family Band EP on April 12th.
“Family is everything to me and making a record like this has been a dream for me since my kids were little,” Sara explained in a statement. “They were literally raised on a tour bus around music and this is something that I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I’m honored that I get to make this music with them before they embark on their own careers as musicians.”
It will be interesting to see how many of Evans-Barker kids turn music into a full-fledged career. Only time will tell! Until then, we’ll just enjoy watching them grow into adults.
