The only way you’d know Evans went through a messy tabloid divorce since her last album is when she sings, ”Sometimes loving me just means leaving me alone,” on Stronger. Her big voice tackles anthems like ”Anywhere” and ”A Little Bit Stronger” as though the schlock matters; her conviction makes them work. She’s charming when she takes up with a guy whose ex dumped him after she made it to the ”Hollywood round of American Idol.” B Download These:Soaring Anywhere at Last.fmLyrically clever, Beatle-free Ticket to Ride at Last.fm .
Six years have transpired between Sara Evans' Real Fine Place and Stronger. In the meantime, contemporary country music has undergone a tumultuous shift in terms of its production style and songwriting trends. Though her life experiences -- good and bad -- have kept her from recording, Evans reveals here she's been paying close attention. The lead-off single, "A Little Bit Stronger," cracked the Top 20 before the album was released.
