ZANESVILLE, Ohio â€“ Country music fans in Zanesville got to hear one of the biggest names in the business Sunday night at Secrest Auditorium.
County star Sara Evans played a Christmas concert in front of a near sell out crowd. Sara Haren with Dusty Guitar Promotions said that Evans has a big following in Muskingum County.
â€œItâ€™s been several years now, I believe it was back in 2003, the last time she was in Zanesville so itâ€™s long overdue. Sheâ€™s very popular. Sheâ€™s very kind and she has a very loyal fan base because she is good to her fans,â€ said Haren.
The Philo High School choir was given the chance to open for Evans. The long time county star played several of her hits and some Christmas classics.
â€œYouâ€™re going to hear â€˜Born to Flyâ€™ and â€˜Suds in the Bucket,â€™ â€˜Stronger,â€™ which are her huge hits,â€ said Haren. â€œYouâ€™ll hear several of those and youâ€™ll hear a few other really popular Christmas tunes.â€
This was Evanâ€™s last stop on her tour for 2016. Sheâ€™ll continue the tour in mid-January in Philadelphia.
