Sara Evans official ambassador for National Eating Disorders Association

Tuesday, February 28, 2006 – Sara Evans was named an official ambassador for the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA), it was announced today, during NEDA's 19th annual National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (NEDAW), Feb. 26th - March 4th.

Evans - currently on the road with label mate Brad Paisley for the Time Well Wasted tour - has had hits including "Born to Fly," "Perfect," "Suds in the Bucket," "Cheatin'" and "A Real Fine Place To Start."

After watching a close friend battle a life threatening eating disorder, Evans, a mother of two daughters, made the decision to devote herself to the cause.

"I am so honored to announce my affiliation as an ambassador for NEDA," said Evans. "Thankfully I have never suffered from an eating disorder, but am well aware of our society's obsession with body image. My passion for this cause is much more personal. I almost lost my best friend to anorexia. I am lending my voice as an entertainer, a mom and a friend because I want to bring great awareness to this cause."

CD review - At Christmas 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. ...
