article imageReview: Sara Evans lackluster on new comeback single 'Marquee Sign' Special

By Markos Papadatos     Jul 14, 2017 in Music
Country songstress Sara Evans has released her comeback single "Marquee Sign," and it is absolutely forgettable and unimpressive.
It is a track from her forthcoming independent studio album, Words, which will be released to digital retailers on July 21; moreover, it is her first single to country radio in over three years (since her song "Put My Heart Down" barely made the Top 60 on the Billboard Hot Country Airplay charts).
The lyrics of "Marquee Sign" are subpar, and the reverb on the vocals does not help either (which make it reminiscent of auto-tune). From start to finish, the song is a complete mess, coupled with a weak production makes it difficult to sustain the listener's attention throughout. It is bound to flop from a commercial standpoint.
The single was co-penned by Evans, as well as songwriters Jimmy Robbins and Heather Morgan. Her teenage daughter, Olivia Evans, is also featured on the song on backing vocals towards the end, yet she adds nothing to it with her vocals.
Simply put, "Marquee Sign" is one of Evans' worst songs to date, and it sticks out like a soar thumb. It lacks the charisma of her previous radio singles. It is one of those songs that one instantly wants to change the radio station once it is being played on the airwaves. Fortunately, for the country fans in the New York area, hardly any of the radio stations have played this song, and rightfully so.
The Verdict
Overall, Sara Evans' new single "Marquee Sign" garners 1 out of 5 stars. It should not be called a "comeback" single since there is nothing remarkable about it. If her new album, Words, is anything like this lead-off single, then it is certain to plummet in album sales and chart position.
