The discography of American country artist Sara Evans consists of seven studio albums, three compilation albums, one extended play, one video album, four additional albums, twenty-nine singles, and four other charted songs. After an unsuccessful stint recording for "E and S Records", Evans reworked her musical direction and signed with RCA Records in 1997.[1] Her debut album, Three Chords and the Truth, was released in July of 1997. Although the singles were unsucessful, it was critically acclaimed and nominated for various awards by the music industry.[2] Her second studio album was released in September of 1998 entitled No Place That Far. The title track reached number one on the Billboard Hot Country Singles and Tracks chart, becoming her first major hit. The single's success pushed the album to certify gold in the United States.[1] In October of 2000, she issued her third studio effort Born to Fly. The album reached number six on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and the top-sixty on the Billboard 200.[3] Its title track became her second number-one hit and her second entry on the Billboard Hot 100. It also contained the hits "I Could Not Ask for More", "Saints & Angels", and "I Keep Looking".[2] It is the best-selling album of Evans' career, certifying two-times platinum in the United States for sales of over two-million copies.[4] In August of 2003, she released the pop-inspired Restless, who's lead single, "Perfect", reached the top-five. When "Suds in the Bucket" became the album's third single, Restless certified platinum in the United States.[1] Evans' fifth studio album Real Fine Place was released in October of 2005; it became her first record to debut at number one on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, for selling one hundred thirty thousand copies in its first week. It also debuted at number three on the Billboard 200.[2] "A Real Fine Place to Start" was its lead single and peaked on the top spot of the Hot Country Songs chart, while the second single "Cheatin'" reached the top-ten.[1]

While performing as a contestant on the television series Dancing with the Stars in 2006, Evans filed for divorce, causing her to leave the program and halt production of new music. Instead, a Greatest Hits package was issued and its first single, "As If", became a major hit.[1] Between 2007 and 2010, Evans released a series of unsuccessful singles, as well as an extended play of holiday music. In March of 2011, Evans issued Stronger, her first studio album in six years. It became her second effort to top the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and the title track became Evans' fifth number one single.[5] After a three-year hiatus, Evans' seventh studio album Slow Me Down was released in March of 2014.[6] The effort's title track was released in late 2013 and has since peaked at number 17 in May 2014.
