Sara Evans • Saturday, October 29 • 8pm

Hoosier Ballroom

She has been called “one of the most compelling vocalists of her generation.” With her signature powerful vocals, singer/songwriter Sara Evan has become a country music legend. She’s sold more than six million albums, scoring five #1 songs, two #1 Billboard Country Albums and four consecutive RIAA certified Gold, Platinum or Multi-Platinum albums. Over the years, Evans has developed a reputation for delivering delightful yet refreshing albums full of great songs brought to life by her distinctive voice. Today she is on the cutting edge of outstanding country performers. Evans was one of the first country stars to compete on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” and she has been named one of People magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People.” Her latest album is titled Slow Me Down, but it doesn’t appear that anything will moderate Evan’s continuous rise to the top of the Country charts.
