Six years after her last studio album, Sara Evans is back with her recent release, Stronger, a landmark record filled with the kind of gutsy explorations on life and love that have made Evans one of the most compelling female vocalists of her generation.
If people are surprised to hear that Evans is back, it’s because it didn’t seem as though she’d ever gone away. She continued to tour and maintain close contact with her active fan base. She became an author, and has already completed two novels – The Sweet By and By and Softly and Tenderly. She released a greatest hits collection that included four new tunes, and she’s continually remained a favorite with Country radio thanks to such hits as “Born to Fly,” “Suds in the Bucket,” “I Keep Looking,” and “Perfect.”
Opening for Sara Evans will be newcomer, Brent Cobb, one of Nashville's most promising singer-songwriters, originally from Georgia.
Brent Cobb's songs are sung by stars such as Luke Bryan, David Nail, Kellie Pickler and the Eli Young Band. He writes for one of Music Row's top publishing houses and has just completed his first Nashville recording as an artist. Brent says he never intended to be known much beyond his hometown, but fate, family and his fellow Georgians conspired to change that plan.
During 2012, Brent opened for stars such as Blake Shelton and he recorded his first self-titled EP, "Brent Cobb." "It's all sort of happened at the same time," the singer-songwriter marvels. "I feel like I'm rockin' right now. I'm glad that these songs are feeling right to people. I'm just thankful that it's working. This has been the coolest experience."
