Saturday To-Do: Sara Evans



8 p.m., Timberwood Amphitheater, Magic Springs. $35.99-$45.99.

Sara Evans, as they might say in the business, is the complete package. She's good lookin' enough to have made People's most beautiful people list. She's Christian, but not so pious she can't sing something like “Can't wait to get him home / Ain't gonna have nothin' but the supper on ...” convincingly. More than a decade ago, she entered into the majors thanks to Nashville legend Harlan Howard, who was so blown away after hearing her sing his “I've Got a Tiger by the Tail” that he lobbied on her behalf. Her first album, “Three Chords and the Truth,” established her as the face of new traditionalism in country music, but on the four that followed, she retained enough throwback sound to appease the nostalgic and added enough sheen to rule the radio. She comes to Magic Springs amidst a busy schedule. Her lead single off her forthcoming studio album is due out later this month. And in the fall, her first novel, “Sweet By and By,” a collaboration with a Christian romance writer, will be published.
