Sara Evans gets engaged

Monday, March 24, 2008 – Sara Evans, who had a very public and nasty divorce last year, is getting hitched again. She will marry former University of Alabama quarterback Jay Barker.

No wedding date was set, according to an article on People magazine's web site.

Evans, 37, was married to Craig Schleske and had three children. But the two split over charges of infidelity and cruelty. Barker has four children from a previous marriage.

Evans and Barker began dating before Thanksgiving of last year.

Barker led the Crimson Tide to a national championship in 1992. He currently hosts a morning radio show in Birmingham, Ala. on which Evans has appeared.
