Sara Evans dances with the stars
Monday, August 14, 2006
– Sara Evans will join ABC’s hit show "Dancing With The Stars" as the first country artist to participate in the dance competition when it resumes this fall. Premiering Tuesday, Sept. 12, the show will feature Evans performing live choreographed Latin and traditional ballroom dance routines to popular live music with her dance partner, Tony Dovolani. He partnered with Stacey Keibler last season.
“I love to dance,” explains Evans, better known for hits like "Suds in the Bucket" and "Born to Fly." “I'm always up for a challenge and this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
Each week, Evans and Dovolani, along with 10 other couples, will be judged by an expert panel including former ballroom dancer Len Goodman, dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba. The viewing public also gets to weigh in by voting via phone or online for their favorite performers. The judges and public’s votes are combined and the outcome will be announced during a results show every Wednesday.

Cigarettes, like the tequila she sings about later, are clearly bad for you. Unfortunately, the man in this song didn't come labeled with a skull and cross bones. The album from whence ...
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. She has the kind of strong voice that gives this lyric the spiritual declarative quality it requires. And yet, she can switch to the acoustic guitar-backed "Oh Come All Ye Faithful" and sing ever so prettily and quietly. ...
