Confidence is sexy and creativity is empowering. Rarely have those qualities merged into a more potent package then on Sara Evans’ new album Slow Me Down. From the simmering title track, which provided her biggest first week ever at country radio, to the life-affirming message of the album’s closing song, “Revival,” Evans has crafted a compelling body of work filled with the kind of slice-of-life vignettes that fans expect from the award-winning vocalist. Slow Me Down is Evans’ seventh album for RCA Nashville Records and never has she sounded more self-assured and in control of her artistry. “I have a lot of strong opinions because I’ve been doing this my whole life and I know what I want,” says Evans, who co-produced the album with Mark Bright, who helmed her platinum album Real Fine Place and is also known for his work with Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts and Reba McEntire. “I just love him. I really wanted Mark’s type of personality and production on this. He’s so bright and chipper and is always there to give support, direction and his expertise.” Though her new album is titled Slow Me Down its obvious Sara Evans isn’t even taking her foot off the gas these days. “I knew that when I started to make this record that I wanted to go further than I had ever gone before with my music,” she says. “Vocally I wanted to challenge myself. I’m super happy with the outcome.”
