Sara Evans, “As If”
I don’t think I can name another female country singer who has produced more consistently entertaining and interesting singles in the last decade than Sara Evans. “As If” is the lead cut from Evans’ upcoming hits collection, and it’s no surprise to me that it’s a charming record, perfectly produced and expertly sung. And, as usual, it’s just offbeat enough to be genuinely different from anything else on the radio.
You know that period at the beginning of a relationship where you don’t even want to entertain the thought that the one you’re with is anything less than perfect? This song captures that feeling, with a woman wise enough to know that trouble may surface down the line, but wanting to enjoy the good times without worry or care.
From a hits collection that will be solid from start to finish, this is another fantastic single from Sara Evans. As if it would be anything less.
