Parade – “With soaring vocals, smooth harmonies and original flair, this cover album is sure to become a summer favorite.”
Associated Press— “Top-notch country singer Sara Evans takes on 13 cover songs spanning six decades…”
Nashville Lifestyles – “Sara Evans steps into a musical time machine for this covers album, applying her playful vocals to a sturdy set of classic pop and country favorites. Visiting six different decades, she delightfully coaxes disco, Brit-pop, new wave rock, and more into the 21st century.”
CMT.com --“Disco, New Wave and Soft Rock from 70s and 80s have never sounded so good."
American Songwriter – “The feisty side of the girl who grew up in rural Missouri and the woman who made her way to legendary status in Nashville can be heard within every note of Copy That.”
People Magazine — “... perfection can be heard on Copy That in everything from the psychedelic solo in the 1978 classic Kenny Loggins and Stevie Nicks duet "Whenever I Call You Friend" with Little Big Town's Phillip Sweet or the subtle and sweet melodic touches on the Poco's 1979 hit "Crazy Love."
Wide Open Country -- “From the sound of things, Evans could've been a rock star, though we're glad she chose instead to push country music into a new century.”
Sara has been passing the time every Monday and Thursday with her wildly popular “Closet Chaos” Instagram Live series that she has been doing alongside daughter Oliva Barker since April 2nd. The hilarious series has welcomed guests such as Tony Dovolani, Clinton Kelly, Martina McBride, Melissa Peterman, and Phillip Sweet.
