They say timing is everything. And, in this particular case, timing was everything. In 2006, Sara Evans released "Coalmine," the 3rd single from her Real Fine Place CD. That effort had already spawned two Top 10 hits, the #1 hit "A Real Fine Place to Start" and "Cheatin," which peaked at #9. "Coalmine" was supposed to be Sara's third big hit in a row. Only it didn't happen. See, at that time, the nation just wasn't ready for an upbeat, feel-good song about coal mines.
