Celebrity Jersey Cards #685 Mark Wills & Sara Evans

Celebrity Jersey Cards is a weekly series in which I create virtual trading cards for celebrities wearing jerseys. I continue marching alphabetically through all of the Major League Baseball teams.

Singer Mark Wills was born in Blue Ridge, Georgia and played in garage bands in his teens. He won a local singing contest at 17 and went on to chart 16 singles. Wills sang the National Anthem for his home state Atlanta Braves to merit a Celebrity Jersey Card.

Born in Boonville, Missouri, Sara Evans started performing at an early age, as part of The Evans Family Band. She eventually moved to Nashville and has had five songs reach the number one spot on the Billboard country songs chart. In 2012, she survived a plane crash. She is a spokesperson for the National Eating Disorders Association. Evans earned her Celebrity Jersey Card for singing the National Anthem at a Braves game.

My ex introduced me to Sara Evans music. She bought me one of her albums when we were together. Only really know one song (A Real Fine Place to Start), but it's pretty good.
