Thirteen song album chronicles influences and features collaborations
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and multi-platinum entertainer Sara Evans is about to put smiles on a lot of faces with the May 15th release of Copy That. The 13 song collection, spanning six decades, finds Evans putting her distinctive creative stamp on some of the most iconic songs in country and pop music, songs that have inspired her life and career, as well as shining a spotlight on some little-known gems. Copy That is Evans’ first solo studio album since 2017’s critically-acclaimed Words and is released on her Born to Fly Records, distributed by ADA. The project, featuring collaborations with Old Crow Medicine Show and Little Big Town’s Phillip Sweet, is co-produced by Evans and Jarrad K (Ruston Kelly, Weezer, Goo Goo Dolls).
The fifth most-played female artist at country radio in nearly the last two decades, Sara Evans partners with Billboard.com for an audio premiere of the first offering from the album, the 70’s disco smash “If I Can’t Have You.” The song is is available for streaming and download starting tomorrow (Fri, March 20th) when you pre-order or pre-save the project on Evans’ website. Special fan packages will also be available.
Four songs will be available before release date starting with “If I Can’t Have You” on March 20th. “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” featuring Old Crow Medicine Show follows on April 3rd with “Hard To Say I’m Sorry” on April 17th and “Whenever I Call You Friend” featuring Phillip Sweet of Little Big Town on May 1st.
Last night, Evans joined Talk Shop Live from Nashville for a special live event revealing the album details and retro art, showing off a breathtaking blonde look, and giving viewers the chance to pre-order the project with randomly selected orders receiving signed copies.
