It's difficult to imagine the always glamorous Sara Evans chasing cattle and feeding the hogs, but that's exactly what she grew up doing. During an interview to talk about her new album 'Slow Me Down,' Evans found herself sharing the less-than-glamorous details of home life in New Franklin, Mo.

Evans tells Taste of Country Nights that she woke up early most days, as her parents relied on the singer and her six siblings to tend to cattle, haul hay and do whatever it takes to keep a farm running.

“Sometimes I would have to get up before school, saddle my horse and go get cows in that had gotten out,” Evans explains, adding that this was the way of life for almost everyone in her graduating class of 35. The star also opened up about her many kids and what she relies on to keep their schedules straight.

'Slow Me Down' is her seventh studio album, and it's in stores as of Tuesday (March 11). In addition to the title track, fans will find collaborations with Vince Gill and Gavin DeGraw.

Sam Alex is the host of Taste of Country Nights radio, a syndicated night show aired on over 50 Townsquare Media Group stations nationwide.
