My Heart Can't Tell You No
Label: Rca Records Label Nashville
Since A Real Fine Place, Sara Evans has danced on national television, went through a very public divorce, remarried and moved to Alabama. All of these emotional touchstones are layered in the grooves of Stronger. From single "A Little Bit Stronger" to the up-tempo "Desperately," Evans sounds ready to tackle the world and her confidence shines through in her voice. She deftly countrifies Rod Stewart's "My Heart Can't Tell You No," and even covers herself with a bluegrass-y version of "Born to Fly." But the cornerstone is the heartbreaking "What That Drink Cost Me."
