Sara Evans Signs With Concord Music Group

Sara Evans

Multi-Platinum selling recording artist Sara Evans, one of Country music’s most compelling voices, has signed with the Concord Music Group to release her next album on Sugar Hill Records. Evans has already begun working on her label debut, which will be her eighth studio album overall, planned for release early next year.  Evans is enjoying a prolific recording career with nearly 6 million records sold and five #1 Country singles to date.  She is touring the country through the end of the year with dates in cities including Panama City Beach, Akron, Cincinnati and St. Louis. She will join a roster that includes Sugar Hill Records artists Jewel, Lee Ann Womack, Josh Kelley, Shawn Mullins and Corey Smith as well as fellow Concord Music Group artists including Paul McCartney, Melissa Etheridge, James Taylor and more.

“We are thrilled to have Sara Evans join the Rounder Label Group family. I’ve followed her astounding career and watched her grow as an artist and as an individual for years, from her first record Three Chords and the Truth to her 2011 smash “Stronger,”” said Tracy Gershon, Vice President of A&R for Rounder Label Group. “One aspect I’ve always admired about Sara is the excitement that others continue to have for her and the music – from publishers to fans and peers alike.  We are honored to have her join the Rounder family and I can’t wait to share this next chapter of her musical journey.”

“I’m so excited to begin this next chapter of my career with the amazing team at Sugar Hill and Concord Music Group,” said Evans. “I appreciate how they allow their artists to have complete creative freedom in the music they make, and I love how they think outside of the box to find new and innovative ways to get that music to the fans.  I’ve already begun writing and finding songs for the album, and couldn’t be happier with the direction it’s taking and what we’ve put together so far.”

Evans recently teamed up with TV personality Todd Chrisley, of the hit USA Network show Chrisley Knows Best, for the Season 4 finale where they did a duet entitled “Infinite Love.” The single, available now at http://smarturl.it/InfiniteLove, debuted in the Top 10 on the iTunes Country Singles Chart and has been receiving rave reviews from fans across the country. Evans will join some of her family members to face off with the Chrisleys on the hit ABC show Celebrity Family Feud, airing Sunday, September 11th. She will play for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Evans is best known for her five  #1 Country singles including “No Place That Far,” “Suds In The Bucket, “A Real Fine Place To Start,” “Born to Fly,” and “A Little Bit Stronger,” which spent 2 weeks at #1 and was certified platinum by the R.I.A.A. Evans released her critically acclaimed seventh studio album Slow Me Down in 2014, which debuted at #2 on the Country Album Chart and landed in the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart, winning over fans and media alike, being dubbed her best album to date. She has garnered numerous accolades over the course of her stellar career, including the Academy of Country Music’s Top Female Vocalist honor and the Country Music Association’s Video of the Year for her hit chart-topping single, “Born to Fly” from her double-platinum album of the same name. Named one of People Magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People,” Evans’ career also includes the platinum-selling studio albums Real Fine Place and Restless, the gold-certified No Place That Far and the double-Platinum selling Born To Fly.
