A multi-platinum selling country singer and songwriter, Sara Evans has been called “one of the most compelling vocalists of her generation.” Since emerging in the late 1990s, Evans has had a prolific recording career that has seen the sale of more than 6 million albums. She’s had five #1 songs, four others appearing in the Top 10, two #1 Billboard Country Albums, five appearing on Billboard’s Top 200 all-genre chart and four consecutive RIAA certified Gold, Platinum or Multi-Platinum albums. She’s received awards from the Country Music Association, Academy of Country Music, Billboard Music Award and has garnered nominations for Grammy Awards (2), American Country Awards (10) and CMT Music Awards (5).
“Confidence is sexy and creativity is empowering.” Rarely have those qualities merged into a more potent package then on Sara Evans’ new album Slow Me Down. From the simmering title track, which provided her biggest first week ever at country radio, to the life-affirming message of the album’s closing song, Revival, Evans has crafted a compelling body of work filled with the kind of slice-of-life vignettes that fans expect from the award-winning vocalist.
The Center for the Performing Arts is partnering throughout February with St. Vincent and the American Heart Association to raise awareness about heart disease and stroke, which claim the lives of 1 in 3 women – 30 per day in Indiana alone. The observance will begin with the Palladium performance by country star Sara Evans on Feb. 3 at 8:00 PM, which happens to be the AHA’s National Wear Red Day. The concert hall and the staff will be decked out in red, and patrons are encouraged to do the same, have their photos taken and learn some potentially lifesaving facts at the St. Vincent information booth.
