SARA EVANS DANCES HER LAST DANCE ON THE SEASON FINALE OF ABC’s DANCING WITH THE STARS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 20, 2006

Nashville, TN -- Sara Evans returned for the finale of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars this past Wednesday night where she danced her final dance of the show with her partner Tony Dovolani. Evans was on hand to congratulate this season’s champion Emmitt Smith and bid farewell to her fellow competitors.

“I was so ecstatic about Emmitt's win,” explained Evans. “He is the epitome of what the show is all about - someone starting out as a non-dancer and then becoming a great dancer - I was so proud of his hard work. He is one of the nicest people not to mention the fact that Cheryl Burke is an amazing dancer, teacher and became a good friend. Congrats to both of them.”

Despite the end of the show, Evans walked away with several dear friends. On December 1st in Merrillville, Indiana (near Chicago), Jerry Springer, Evans’ Dancing With The Stars co-star and friend, will join her on stage during her performance at the Star Plaza Theatre to sing a few country tunes.

"Jerry loves country music,” says Evans. “He is a huge fan and even cut a country record so I invited him to sing at my show in Merrillville where he’ll do a couple of classic songs... I cannot wait!"

Evans, a multi-platinum-selling recording artist, is the Academy of Country Music’s reigning Top Female Vocalist. Her current single “You’ll Always Be My Baby” from her Gold certified album Real Fine Place is climbing the charts.
