When Sara Met Jay
Sara Evans was introduced to her fiancé, Jay Barker, through relationship counselor Joe Beam, according to Nashville TV station WKRN.
Beam, who is also a minister, served as a spiritual advisor to Sara once her marriage to Craig Schelske began to unravel. He was also counseling Barker, a former University of Alabama quarterback and current host of a Birmingham, Ala., radio show. When both Sara’s and Jay’s marriages fell apart, Beam introduced the two to each other. One of Sara’s managers confirmed to WKRN that the two were introduced by Beam, but they did not begin dating until their divorces were finalized. Sara and Jay announced their engagement on March 24. Reportedly, Beam will perform the marriage ceremony, although that has not been confirmed.
