Fans can catch Sara on the road this week with shows July 20 in Tulsa, OK and an album launch date concert on July 21 at Billy Bob’s in Ft. Worth, TX. From there, she will travel to New York City for appearances on July 24 with AOL, Paste, and Facebook where she will be #FBArtistoftheDay. On July 25, tune in to see Sara perform on nationally-syndicated talk show “Live with Kelly and Ryan”! She will wrap the whirlwind week with shows in Ohio (July 28) and Michigan (July 29).
Words, which includes the “sleek” lead single “Marquee Sign,” is available for pre-order now at saraevans.co/words and releases everywhere on July 21 via Sara’s own Born To Fly Records. The 14-song collection features fourteen separate female songwriters, including powerhouses Ashley Monroe, Caitlyn Smith, Hillary Lindsey, Hillary Scott, Liz Hengber, Sonya Isaacs and more. The album marks a creative reunion for Evans, pairing her with frequent co-producer Mark Bright (2005’s Real Fine Place, 2014’s Slow Me Down) while Tracy Gershon and Craig Dunn provide A&R direction.
Family is at the forefront of Words as daughter Olivia Evans (14) sings on “Marquee Sign” and Sara’s siblings Matt Evans, Lesley Evans Lyons and Ashley Evans Simpson provide harmonies on “Night Light.” In “Letting You Go,” Sara pours out her heart for son and oldest child Avery as he prepares to embark on his senior year of high school.
