Sara Evan's Ready for the Holidays
November is upon us, and with the holiday season right around the corner, it’s perfect timing for a little get-in-the-spirit music from Sara Evans, whose four-song digital E-P, I’ll Be Home for Christmas, releases November 3rd! The collection includes the title track, as well as “Go Tell It on the Mountain,” and the inspiring “New Again,” a song that Sara wrote with — and sings with — Brad Paisley. The fourth track in the collection is the classic “O Come All Ye Faithful,” and it’s just the kind of song that Sara says we learn as children, but really come to appreciate as adults.
The arrival of I’ll Be Home for Christmas will help get you in the mood for Sara’s upcoming Celebrate the Season tour! She’ll be playing a dozen West Coast shows beginning November 27th. Each show will have one set with all holiday music, and another with Sara singing some of her biggest hits. Check out a complete tour schedule, and all things Sara, at saraevans.com

And so, all of the old hymns and old Christmas songs, especially the religious ones, are always my favorite because it’s very sacred, the lyrics to these songs, and what they’re talking about.”

But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E. Dougherty, 29; and half-brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, have been on the lam since Aug. 2 when they shot at a police officer attempting to pull their white Subaru Impreza over for speeding.
