Sara Evans to Compete on Dancing With the Stars

Sara Evans will join ABC’s Dancing With the Stars as a competitor this fall. The first episode of the season airs Sept. 12. Evans will perform Latin and traditional ballroom dance routines with her partner, Tony Dovolani, who was Stacey Keibler’s partner last season. “I love to dance,” Evans said. “I’m always up for a challenge, and this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” Evans and Dovolani will be judged with 10 other couples each week, with viewers voting to keep their favorites in the competition. Other celebrities competing this season include MSNBC news anchor Tucker Carlson, actor Harry Hamlin, NFL great Emmitt Smith and talk show host Jerry Springer.
