It’s new music time for Sara Evans.
If you haven’t had the chance to hear Sara’s entire new album yet you may be waiting to see what the second single will be. It seems the decision has been made and the next single is My Heart Can’t Tell You No and from an early listen it sounds like another winner.
Listen to My Heart Can’t Tell You No and see what you think…
My Heart Can’t Tell You No – Sara Evans
Do you recognize it too?
From that first lyric I got the feeling I had heard this song before. After a quick search it turned out this song was a top five pop hit for Rod Stewart back in the late ’80s. If you were around during that time you probably recognize the song. It was an international hit for Rod – one of the biggest stars on the planet even today.
It was a time of comeback for Rod back in the late ’80s and early ’90s. This song played a part in a resurgence in his popularity. He was well into his forties at the time and was coming on strong as a continuing if unlikely pop star.
Now Sara is taking the song and putting her own spin on it. I think Sara hits it out of the park too. The song has always had this cool, groovy chorus that makes you nod your head along to the beat. Rod always had the raspy style of his voice as the highlight, but for Sara she’s able to bring her classic country twang to the song and really turn it into something special.
The song is about cheating. In Sara’s case it’s her guy that’s been with another woman. He thinks he can make it work with boy. No Sara is playing the part of telling him he needs to stay away. She falls victim to his charm when he comes around begging for mercy she can’t tell him no.
It’s gotta be tough to fall into this trap with someone you love even though they don’t share the same love completely. It’s an all too real situation for many out there.
I think Sara is going to find another hit with My Heart Can’t Tell You No. It’d be interesting to hear what Rod thinks of the new track. Hopefully he’d approve. His is great and I’d say Sara did a great job as well.
