Sara Evans Proves Tomatoes Are in Season at Taste of Country Festival in 2015
"What a beautiful audience you are!" Sara Evans told to the early evening crowd on Sunday (June 14) as she took the stage on the final day of the 2015 Taste of Country Music Festival.
Yes, the audience looked good, but one of country's juiciest 'tomatoes' looked even better. The Missouri native and mother-to-many had no shame sporting her toned legs in short black shorts and ankle boots. Evans added a pop of color to her outfit with a loose blue kimono perfect for summer and kept it country with her hair in braided pigtails.
Evans opened her hour-long set with the popular "Born to Fly" followed by "As If" and "Perfect." Hands were waving during "Slow Me Down" and the star got fans cheering for the next song — "Coalmine" — when she said: "This one's for the sexy, good-looking men in the audience today."
"I have a soft spot in my heart for sad songs," the singer admitted. "I love songs about getting your heart broken, being tragically in love with someone who doesn't love you back." Evans then began belting out her 2011 hit "A Little Bit Stronger" (for which the crowd sang loudest) and "My Heart Can't Tell You No" right after.
"I have two older brothers and four younger sisters. Growing up on a farm in Missouri, in a small town, there's a lot of rednecks. And most of 'em drive pickup trucks. So my parents were always worried about my sisters and me running off with one of those rednecks," she dished. The star added, "...to New York!"
Dancing soon followed as the sounds of "Suds in the Bucket" filled Hunter's mountainside on Taste of Country Festival's hottest day, temperature-wise. Evans' third No. 1 single was certainly a highlight. She wrapped her set with "I Could Not Ask for More" and "A Real Fine Place to Start" and curtsied before leaving the stage. Did we mention that she's as adorable as she is talented? Because she is. Tomatoes are definitely in season in 2015.
