Nashville, TN – Country superstar Sara Evans will help the White House kick off the holiday season by performing at the 84th Annual Lighting of the National Christmas tree Thursday, December 6th. President George W. Bush will be on hand to continue the tradition begun in 1923 by President Calvin Coolidge who lit the first tree in President’s Park on behalf of all Americans. During the ceremony, Evans will perform “Silent Night,” “O Come All Ye Faithful” and “Go Tell It On The Mountain,” accompanied by The United States Air Force Band and the St. Albans and National Cathedral Schools Choir.

Evans recently celebrated the release of her Greatest Hits album which features four new songs, including the Top 15 hit single, “As If,” as well as “Love You with All My Heart,” “Pray for You” and “Some Things Never Change,” all co-penned by Evans. Also featured on the album are three Top 5 singles and four No. 1 songs, including “No Place That Far,” “Born to Fly,” “Suds in the Bucket,” “A Real Fine Place to Start,” and “I Could Not Ask for More,” among others.
