Greatest Hits is a 2007 compilation album from American country music singer Sara Evans. It features ten of her greatest hits from her second through fifth albums, as well as four newly recorded tracks.

Content[edit]

Greatest Hits chronicles the highest-peaking singles from Evans' second through fifth studio albums: 1998's No Place That Far, 2000's Born to Fly, 2003's Restless, and 2005's Real Fine Place. All of the selections from these albums reached Top 20 or higher on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts (no tracks are included from her 1997 debut album, Three Chords and the Truth, which did not produce any Top 40 country hits). Among the previously released tracks are her four number one hits: 1999's "No Place That Far", 2001's "Born to Fly", 2004's "Suds in the Bucket", and 2005's "A Real Fine Place to Start".

In addition to the previously released tracks, Greatest Hits includes four previously unreleased tracks: "As If", "Love You with All My Heart", "Pray for You", and "Some Things Never Change". In mid-2007, "As If" was released as the first single from this album, reaching a peak of number 11 on the country charts. "Some Things Never Change", a celebration of home, family and such simple pleasures as seeing the kids get off the bus at the end of the school day, was released in early 2008 as the second single.[2] The song's hook "some things never change" is based on the central character's realization that, while things may change in the world around her, the basics of love between family will never change.[3] It reached number 26 on the country charts. "Love You with All My Heart," the album's third single, failed to land on the chart after its release on June 23, 2008.

Promotion[edit]

Evans promoted this album with her The Greatest tour from late 2007 through late 2008.
