Listen to Sara Evans on iHeartRadio

Sara Evans is getting ready for next week's arrival of her new album, Slow Me Down, by sharing the music with some of her fans. 

The country star hosted an event at a Birmingham, Alabama club Thursday night.  An estimated crowd of 500 - 600 people packed the Iron City Birmingham for the concert. 

Sara sang a selection of hits and fan favorites while showcasing new material, including her current single, "Slow Me Down." 

And Evans isn't just using the event for self-promotion.  Money raised through "An Evening With Sara Evans" is going to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and charities in the Birmingham area.
