SARA EVANS REACHES #1 WITH “A LITTLE BIT STRONGER”

Sara Evans celebrates the fifth No. 1 single of her career this week! “A Little Bit Stronger” holds the No. 1 position on the Billboard and Country Aircheck charts. Sara is also the first female artist to reach No. 1 this year on both charts.
 
“I am so humbled and overwhelmed that ‘A Little Bit Stronger’ made it to No. 1,” says Sara. “This song has had the biggest emotional response of any other single I’ve ever released. I think it is because almost everyone has gone through a difficult time in their life and most people can relate to the line in the song ‘even on my weakest days, I get a little bit stronger.’”
 
“To have everything happen the way it has makes me feel like I’m on top of the world,” reflects Sara. “This is my dream and the passion and desire has never gone away; it was just put on hold for a little while. I feel very thankful and grateful to so many people right now: country radio, my fans and the music industry.”
 
“A Little Bit Stronger,” which has been certified Gold by the RIAA, was written by Hillary Scott, Luke Laird and Hillary Lindsey.

CHARLEY PRIDE IS READY TO ROCK

Charley Pride announced that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will star and produce a biopic about his life.  Originally, actor Terrence Howard was slated to play Charley, but studio changes delayed and ultimately shelved the Howard film. “Terrence is no doubt a more in-depth actor academically, but Dwayne is such a force on screen,” said Charley. “It startled me a little at first, but he flew down to Dallas and spent a day with me just sitting, talking recently. And when he left it was like parting with an old friend. We had such similar views on so many things.”
