Review: Sara Evans at the Performing Arts Center at Kent State Tuscarawas
WJER would like to congratulate the grand prize winner in our "Fair Freezer Frenzy" contest...Chris Owens of Dover! Chris signed up at the WJER fair building during the Tuscarawas County Fair, and her name was selected from hundreds of entries, making her the winner of a 7-cubic-foot Crosley chest freezer courtesy of T.V. Specialties in downtown Dover, a $250 gift certificate to Sugar Valley Meats in Sugarcreek, and a pair of tickets to see Sara Evans at the Kent State Performing Arts Center in New Philadelphia. Our runner up was Bryan Miller of New Philadelphia, who also won a pair of tickets to see Sara Evans. Thanks to everybody who stopped by our fair building to sign up, and congratulations to Chris!

Country music superstar Sara Evans lit up the Performing Arts Center stage Thursday evening with her powerful voice. Evans is probably best known for her hit “Suds in the Bucket,” which received the strongest applause of the night. She also performed songs off her latest albums, including “A Little Bit Stronger” and “Slow Me Down.” She even concluded the show with a crowd favorite, “Shut Up and Dance” by Walk the Moon, and let me say I enjoyed her version much more! Evans noted she likes to record songs about love and heartbreak and songs that truly mean something to her listeners. She also spoke about the fact that country music radio rarely plays songs by powerful women. She explained that a number of current hits are men singing about beer, back roads, and dirt, and she is so right! It was refreshing to hear her sing songs I thoroughly enjoy listening to and singing. My voice may struggle today after belting out the words to almost every song she performed. Overall, I would definitely see this show again. Kudos to the PAC staff for bringing Evans to the valley. I know the nearly sold-out audience enjoyed it!
