Monday, January 28, 2008
– Sara Evans will be performing for VIPs at the NFL Super Bowl XLII Tailgate Party outside of the University of Phoenix Stadium on Super Sunday, Feb. 3. After performing a full concert for those in attendance, Evans will join Willie Nelson on-stage during his set to sing the Nelson classic "Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys." The duet will be televised on the FOX pre-game festivities. Evans will be attending her first Super Bowl game with her son Avery and friends.
"I'm absolutely thrilled to be performing at the Super Bowl," said Evans. "It's the first time for me so I'm taking my son, his friend and my nephew with me, and we're going to have the best time. And of course, getting to sing with Willie Nelson is definitely one of the high points to my entire career."
Evans' second single, "Some Things Never Change," from her recent "Greatest Hits" album was just released to country radio. The song explores the various ways that love is displayed and was co-written by Evans, her brother Matt Evans, Hillary Lindsay and John Shanks.

Sara Evans is straight-up one of the best singers in country music, and when she performs "Go Tell It On The Mountain" backed by a supportive choir on her new holiday offering, "At Christmas," the girl is squarely in her element.

And yet, she can switch to the acoustic guitar-backed "Oh Come All Ye Faithful" and sing ever so prettily and quietly. ...
