Parton, Evans go with "Pink"

Wednesday, October 21, 2020 – Dolly Parton and Sara Evans are part of a quartet of singers, who put out "Pink," in an effort to fight breast cancer.

Rita Wilson, herself a survivor, Monica and Jordin Sparks also sing on the project.

The song benefits Susan G. Komen, the world's leading breast cancer organization.

The lyrics and vocals provide listeners with hope for a future when no one loses someone to breast cancer and "PINK is just another color." Each year breast cancer kills more than 42,000 women and men in the U.S. alone.

"After performing at Opry Goes Pink last year, I'm thrilled to be supporting Susan G. Komen again this year in a very big way," said Evans. "There is something magical that happens when women band together to have a positive impact on the world for our sisters and our daughters."

The song is written by Erin Kinsey, Jodi Marr and Victoria Shaw, produced by Shaw and distributed by Brighter Day Records.

Paula Schneider, CEO of Susan G. Komen, said, "As a breast cancer survivor who lost my mother to metastatic breast cancer, I know first-hand the toll this disease takes on entire families. There is life before breast cancer and life after. We all dream of a world when pink is just another color."

Sonically, Parton also isn't shy about infusing ...
CD review - Copy That Nine songs in, Sara Evans finally unleashes a country song that she wanted to cover. And it's one of the most copied songs at that - Hank's "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry." The cut is a decided left turn from the rest of "Copy That," songs that Evans adored "plain and simple." Overcovered though it may be, Evans' version resonates. Let's face it, her vocals remain a powerful thing of beauty, power and emotion. And it helps that she is backed by ...
You gotta love country music, which still demonizes tobacco just like a Baptist Church Sunday sermon. "Marquee Sign," off Sara Evans' "Word" album begins with the country star announcing, "I wish you were a pack of cigarettes/'Cause you would have come with a warning." Cigarettes, like the tequila she sings about later, are clearly bad for you. Unfortunately, the man in this song didn't come labeled with a skull and cross bones. The album from whence ...
