Sara Evans has partnered with Bandpage and AXS TV giving one of her fans the opportunity to sing onstage with her during Evans’ Fan Club party on June 6 in Nashville. The contest winner will also receive flights for two from a major airport to Nashville, two nights of lodging at a Nashville-area hotel and two tickets to the Fan Club party. AXS will be onsite at the Fan Club party to film the winning fan’s experience as well as to interview them for a promotional piece.

To enter, fans should submit a video of themselves singing their favorite Evans song at the official contest website. On May 27, five finalists will be chosen and announced on, as well as Evans’ social media outlets. Then, online fan voting will begin. On May 31, the voting will be closed, the votes tallied and the winner will be announced.
