Sara Evans had her #1 party yesterday for her hit, “A Little Bit Stronger”. The stars packed the house to support her come-back…Sara took 3 years off from being a Country Music Star….she’s taken that time to settle into her new life as a married woman in Birmingham…with a houseful of kids, Sara says it’s 100 kids! And she admitted that she was worried that the Country audience may have forgotten about her and moved on…but “A Little Bit Stronger” went to #1 and showed Sara that she’s FAR from forgotten!! In fact, we have MISSED her!!
A Little Bit Stronger has become an anthem…the folks who are recovering from the tornadoes that devastated the south are finding hope in the song….(and Sara will be singing it at the Bama Rising concert next month)… A Little Bit Stronger was also used this week on the Dancing With the Stars Finale…and Sara sang it LIVE on the show. As Sara sang, if you watched the finale, they had a montage of video clips that showed each celebrity dancer from the beginning of the series…and followed their improvement as they became stronger dancers. It was the first time Sara had been back since her time as a celebrity dancer on the show, so I caught up with Sara and asked her how it felt to be back there….
Sara Evans: “It was very surreal…lots and lots of memories…I was flooded with memories. Seeing all the dancers and some of the contestants were there that were on my season…so when I got up to actually do the performance, I had a little moment of panic! Like, I’m terrified right now! But then, you know, I got through it fine. But yeah, it was REALLY WEIRD being back there…but so much fun."
Sara said she didn’t want to watch the videos before she sang, because it made her want to cry!
It was a great party yesterday….Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum co-wrote A Little Bit stronger…so she was there and she brought Charles and Dave with her.
