– Sara Evans is offering "Stronger" sooner, at least if you watch QVC.
Evans will appear live on the station on Wednesday, Feb. 16 at 7 a.m. eastern. During this broadcast, Evans will perform songs from her new CD and offer fans the opportunity to order "Stronger," which has been specially-packaged for QVC shoppers with an autographed copy of her new novel "Softly and Tenderly," more than two weeks before street date.
"Stronger," Evans' sixth studio release, includes the first single A Little Bit Stronger. Evans also does a bluegrass version of her hit Born to Fly on the 10-song CD.
