Sara Evans Reveals 2016 Holiday Tour Plans
Sara Evans has announced a short holiday tour to wrap up 2016. The singer will embark on an 11-city Christmas tour in December.
Evans will begin her festive trek on Dec. 1 in Englewood, Fla. Throughout the month, she will make stops in Jacksonville, Fla.; Birmingham and Montgomery, Ala.; St. Louis, Mo.; and Bowling Green, Ky., among other cities; a full list of stops is below. Evans' Christmas tour will end on Dec. 18 in Zanesville, Ohio.
During her holiday shows, Evans will perform both her well-known hits and songs from her 2014 Christmas album, At Christmas.
“I absolutely love Christmas and look forward to the holiday season all year long!” says Evans in a press release. “My band and I have put together a mix of my songs and some favorite holiday favorites, and can’t wait to share them with everyone on this tour!"
Evans recently found a new record label home: Concord Music Group’s Sugar Hill Records. After parting from Sony Music Nashville’s RCA Nashville at the beginning of 2016, she signed with Sugar Hill Records in August and is planning to release her eighth studio album in early 2017.
“I would like to do another big radio splash, big hits, big tour again; I’m just waiting for the ‘bro-country’ stuff to get on its way out,” Evans recently told The Boot. “I’ve been listening to a lot of roots-y music. The kids really want me to make a country record, especially my middle child; she’s like, ‘You need to make a country record’ …
“I’m not making a bluegrass record at all, but all of my albums have a part of me that’s really country and a part of me that does a pop cover,” Evans adds. “I guess how I feel right now feels more in [the former] area.”
