Evans tries to slow down

– Sara Evans premieres the video for her single Slow Me Down
today at Yahoo! Music.
The video, which was shot in Nashville, features NASCAR great Carl Edward. Evas once again teamed up with Emmy Award winning director Peter Zavadil (Sugarland, Jewel, Brad Paisley) who has directed almost all of her videos including the 2001 CMA Video of the Year Born To Fly.
"When we started talking about the music video I wanted to make sure we captured the drama and intense emotion that the song evokes - as always Peter Zavadil did a great job capturing that and so much more," said Evans.
"Carl blew us all away both on and off camera. He nailed the acting parts and was so fun to have around on set especially during the fighting scenes in the apartment. We're both from Missouri and share the same sense of humor, so it was easy to joke back and forth, we had the entire crew cracking up, but on camera it looks like we literally hate each other. I hope the fans love the video for Slow Me Down as much as I do."
The song, produced by Evans and Mark Bright, is the first single from her forthcoming album set for release early next year. Evans is currently in the studio in Nashville putting the finishing touches on her seventh studio album.

You gotta love country music, which still demonizes tobacco just like a Baptist Church Sunday sermon. "Marquee Sign," off Sara Evans' "Word" album begins with the country star announcing, "I wish you were a pack of cigarettes/'Cause you would have come with a warning." 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. ...
