Entertainment Weekly (p.75) - "Her big voice tackles anthems like 'Anywhere' and 'A Little Bit Stronger'...her conviction makes them work." -- Grade: B
Billboard (p.36) - "[Evans] excels on livelier fare like the upbeat anthem 'Anywhere' and the cleverly written 'Ticket to Ride.'"
After five long and tumultuous years, Sara Evans finally returned to the recording studio in 2010 to cut her sixth album, Stronger. The set was preceded by the hit single "A Little Bit Stronger" (co-written by Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott and songwriters Luke Laird and Hillary Lindsey). The track received grand treatment and created anticipation for the album because of its prominent place on the soundtrack of the hit film Country Strong, starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Tim McGraw. The album was released in early 2011 on longtime label RCA.
