Sara Evans Engaged to Former University of Alabama Quarterback Jay Barker

Sara Evans, who finalized a bitter divorce last year, is engaged to former University of Alabama quarterback Jay Barker.

"The couple are enjoying their engagement and look forward to their upcoming nuptials," Lori Genes, the singer's publicist at Sony BMG Nashville, said Tuesday.

No date has been announced for the wedding.

The 37-year-old country singer filed for divorce from husband Craig Schelske in October 2006 after 13 years of marriage. The divorce was completed last September.

Barker, 35, led Alabama to a national championship in 1992 and hosts a morning radio show in Birmingham.

Barker, who's also divorced, has four children while Evans has three.

Evans made her recording debut in 1997 and her 2000 album "Born to Fly" went double-platinum. Her hits include "Perfect," "Suds in the Bucket" and "Real Fine Place to Start."

She was a contestant on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" but pulled out when she filed for divorce.
