The Barker Family Band is made up of 16-year-old Olivia Barker, 19-year-old Avery Barker, and their country music star mother Sara Evans! More here.

Country music star Sara Evans has a new solo album is in the works but was inspired to go into the studio with her own children, 16-year-old daughter Olivia Barker and 19-year-old son Avery Barker, to record a small side-project after fan reaction to acoustic renditions of “Dreams” and “Born To Fly” posted to Instagram. The result: a 6-song EP, The Barker Family Band, and a limited engagement acoustic tour!

“Family is everything to me and making a record like this has been a dream for me since my kids were little,” Sara explains 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.”

As Olivia, a vocalist and songwriter, and Avery, a singer-songwriter, guitar player and multi-instrumentalist, embark on their own solo music careers, Evans is thrilled to share The Barker Family Band EP— which was released on April 12th.

“Dreams” Lyrics

Now here you go again, you say
You want your freedom
Well who am I to keep you down
It’s only right that you should
Play the way you feel it
But listen carefully to the sound
Of your loneliness
Like a heartbeat drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost, and what you had, and what you lost
Thunder only happens when it’s raining
Players only love you when they’re playing
Say women they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know, you’ll know
Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions
I keep my visions to myself, it’s only me
Who wants to wrap around your dreams and,
Have you any dreams you’d like to sell?
Dreams of loneliness,
Like a heartbeat, drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering, what you had,
And what you lost and what you had and what you lost
Thunder only happens when it’s raining
Players only love you when they’re playing
Women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know
Thunder only happens when it’s raining
Players only love you when they’re playing
Say, women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know
You’ll know, you will know, you’ll know
