Born to Fly is the third studio album by Sara Evans, released in October 2000. It is her highest-selling album to date, having earned 2× Platinum certification by the RIAA for U.S. sales of two million copies. The lead single, "Born to Fly," reached number one on January 19, 2001. The album was one of the most successful of the year. Evans was nominated for five CMA Awards: Album of the Year; song, single, and music video (for the title-track), and Female Vocalist of the Year. She won her first CMA award for music video of the year, "Born to Fly." The international version of the album includes a bonus track, "You", which was later released in North America as a bonus track on her 2005 album, Real Fine Place. "Born to Fly" was a defining album for Sara. Her earlier albums had a more neotraditional country sound, while all of her later albums had a more crossover-friendly country pop sound, similar to Shania Twain, Faith Hill, and LeAnn Rimes.
