Sara Evans and second husband Jay Barker are proof that sometimes second time’s a charm. The country music star and the former Alabama football star have been happily married since 2008 after connecting over the pain of their divorces.
Barker is a former University of Alabama quarterback. He led the Crimson Tide to a national championship after beating the Miami Hurricanes at the 1993 Sugar Bowl, under the leadership of head coach Gene Stallings. He had a brief NFL career with the Green Bay Packers, New England Patriots and the Carolina Panthers, but he never actually played a regular-season game.
He moved over to the Canadian Football League to play for the Toronto Argonauts. After three seasons, Barker moved back to Alabama to play for the Birmingham Thunderbolts in the XFL.
