TVD Live: Sara Evans
at the Palace Theatre, Albany, 2/15

In a partnership with Country Music Television, ACM, and CMA Award winning country music artist Sara Evans took the stage at Albany’s Palace Theatre Thursday, February 15 as part of the Next Women of Country: All The Love Tour. The Palace is one of 15 shows in her coast to coast travels featuring artists RaeLynn and Kalie Shorr.

“We’re doing this tour because there ain’t enough country women on the radio,” said Evans smiling. “I grew up singing country music from the age of four years old and I’ve built my entire life around it so I’m so incredibly grateful that you’re here tonight.”

The tour recently kicked off in New York City, where Shorr (“Fight Like A Girl,” “Two Hands”), who opened the show, got to see her name in Time Square for the first time. “It was amazing,” she said. “I’m so excited to be here with these amazing, inspirational girls and to do something I care a lot about and that’s women supporting other women.”

RaeLynn whose current singles include “Lonely Call,” and “Love Triangle” shared that her first album WildHorse, recently debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Albums chart. “Only a few females have done that, one of those is Shania Twain—I can die a happy girl,” she said. “I’m so honored to be a woman in country music right now.”

As emerging female artists took the stage as Next Women of Country, female songwriters play a big role in Evans’ new record, Words. The album features fourteen separate female songwriters, including Evans, Ashley Monroe, Caitlyn Smith, Hillary Lindsey, Hillary Scott, Liz Henberger, and Sonya Isaacs.

In a recent interview with Bill Cody at WSM Radio, Evans spoke about Words and how she feels it is her best album to date. “It’s my favorite album that I have ever recorded … it’s one of those magical things and it all came together perfectly,” she shared.

Words is also deeply personal and showcases a special connection to family. The voices of Evans’ brother, sisters, and one of her daughters can all be heard on the album. Also along for the ride is her son Avery, sharing his own talents on acoustic guitar. “Letting you Go,” a featured song on Words, was written for him.

Evans reveals a more vulnerable side with her latest single, the powerful heartbreak anthem “All The Love You Left Me.” The track, written by Hillary Lindsey, Gordon Sampson, and Ben West, features searing lyrics of a love lost. The “aching ballad” (USA Today) from what Taste of Country calls “the album of her lifetime” hit radio stations late January.
