Platinum-selling RCA Nashville recording artist Sara Evans premiered the
emotional music video for her single “Slow Me Down” yesterday at Yahoo! Music. The video, which was shot in Nashville,
features NASCAR great Carl Edwards who has become one of the sport’s most
respected competitors. Sara once again teamed up with Emmy Award winning
director Peter Zavadil (Sugarland, Jewel, Brad
Paisley) who has directed almost all of her videos including the 2001 CMA Video
of the Year “Born To Fly.” “Slow Me Down” is currently climbing the charts and
marked a career
milestone as her biggest first week add date at radio.
started talking about the music video I wanted to make sure we captured the
drama and intense emotion that the song evokes – as always Peter Zavadil did a
great job capturing that and so much more,” said Sara.
“Carl blew us
all away both on and off camera. He nailed the acting parts and was so fun to
have around on set especially during the fighting scenes in the apartment. We're
both from Missouri and share the same sense of humor, so it was easy to joke
back and forth, we had the entire crew cracking up, but on camera it looks like
we literally hate each other. I hope the fans love the video for "Slow Me Down"
as much as I do!"
Down,” which was produced by Evans and Mark Bright (Reba McEntire, Rascal
Flatts, and Carrie Underwood), is the first single from her forthcoming album
set for release early next year. Sara is currently in the studio in Nashville
putting the finishing touches on what will be her seventh studio album. Fans can
