Nashville, Tenn. – June 9, 2017 – Country Music star and entrepreneur SARA EVANS is lighting up country radio with her new single — “Marquee Sign.” With lyrics and haunting vocals that allude to the warning signs of love gone wrong, Sara Evans’ “Marquee Sign” is available now at saraevans.co/marqueesign.
Written by Sara with Jimmy Robbins and Heather Morgan, “Marquee Sign” is the first single from Evans’ upcoming album Words, due July 21 on her own Born To Fly Records. The multi-platinum entertainer enlists her daughter, Olivia Evans, to add her own unique vocal style to the song.
“Having Olivia sing on ‘Marquee Sign’ is such a special moment for me, not only as a mom but also as a fan,” said Sara. “I was so impressed when she went in the vocal booth and started singing these really cool parts and ad-libs at the end of the song! My fans have watched her grow up on the road with me and I can’t wait for them to hear her on this song.”
Words features fourteen separate female songwriters, including powerhouses Ashley Monroe, Caitlyn Smith, Hillary Lindsey, Hillary Scott, Liz Hengber, Sonya Isaacs and three songs co-written by Sara. The record marks a creative reunion for Evans, pairing her with frequent co-producer Mark Bright (2005’s Real Fine Place, 2014’s Slow Me Down) while Tracy Gershon and Craig Dunn provide A&R direction.
Limited-edition Words fan packages are available for pre-order at saraevans.co/SEStore. Pricing starts at $11.99 and include a variety of bundles ranging from a signed CD or vinyl version of Words, a Sara Evans t-shirt, journal, mug or acoustic guitar.
