Inside Jay Barker & Sara Evan's marriage from country star’s ‘messy divorce' to quarterback 'trying to run her over'

COUNTRY singer Sara Evans and former Alabama football quarterback have been involved in a ‘messy divorce’ since August 2021.

Barker, 49, has been arrested for allegedly trying to run Evans over with a vehicle, according to Tennessee court records.

The Davidson County Sheriff’s website reveals that Barker was booked into a Nashville county jail Saturday morning at 4.10am.

He was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and placed on a $10,000 bond with a 12-hour hold because it was a domestic violence case.

According to the Tennessean, court files claim Barker tried to run over two people who were leaving a party around 1.30am Saturday.

As they pulled into the driveway of a nearby home, Barker allegedly reversed his vehicle “at a high rate of speed attempting to hit them, but missed,” according to the arrest affidavit.

Evans reportedly contacted police after the incident when Barker allegedly drove away.

He later returned to the scene and spoke with officers, officials said, the New York Post reports. After speaking with several witnesses, he was reportedly arrested.

The report says there was probable cause to believe Barker did unlawfully attempt to strike the victim with a vehicle.

He was released after posting a $10,000 bond at 7.30pm Saturday night.

A court date is set for March 22.


Evans, 50, has been married to Barker since 2008.

The artist has released over eight studio albums and one Christmas album. She is estimated to have a net worth of $16 million.

It's understood that the couple were initially introduced by a mutual friend. They were both going through divorces and bonded over their similar life situations.

The pair tied the knot on a farm just outside of Nashville on June 14, 2008.

However, they have been separated and are currently living in different homes.
