Sara Evans to Record 70s Song with Doobie Brothers

Sara Evans is one of those celebrities that hangs in there and take it all in a stride. She was on DWTS and now she has obtained an opportunity of a lifetime. 

Sara is to record the 70s song of the Doobie Brothers titled “What a Fool Believes”. And who is she to team up with to record the hit single? Why, the Doobie Brothers, who else!? 

"I'm pinching myself. Is this really happening? I can't wait to hear it. I haven't heard it yet," she said of the song she chose for the album.

Sara has described the experience of getting together with these legends of the 70s as thrilling to the max. She says it is positively surreal and that she is looking forward to the occasion with eagerness and a sense of anticipation. 

According to CMT, Evans said about Michael McDonald, "He's just an incredible singer. He actually sang on one of my records."

In fact, she can hardly believe it and has to pinch herself sometimes. Meanwhile, Michael McDonald, who used to be a part of the Doobie Brothers ensemble, is returning to the group too after a long hiatus.

"Sometimes I'll think things through before I answer questions or requests like that, but I immediately wrote back, 'Yes, of course. I love the Doobie Brothers!'"

Although some have said that there were a lot of conflicts between the band members, in actuality Michael has repudiated any such false claims. He says that there is camaraderie and a mutual tenderness between them all. 

"Some people we hoped would do it at first weren't available," McDonald told Billboard. "Not that anyone was our second choice. In fact, in many cases, who wound up being available, and who wound up doing it, in the end will come to be the best choice of all."

Among some of the other songs that will make the cut are “Takin’ it to the Streets” and “You Belong to Me”. All of them are as usual classics from the 1970s. 

Besides Sara Evans and Michael McDonald there are several others who are going to chip in their vocal and musical talents. They include: Brad Paisley, Chris Young, the Zac Brown Band and Toby Keith. 

How the yet-to-be version of “What a Fool Believes” turns out depends on the mixed efforts of this medley of artists. McDonald has gone on to say that it was a lot of fun being in the studio with his former team. It looks like the Doobie Brothers are back on track and nothing can stop them from rerecording those 70s greatest hits.

"For me, one of the best things of having been a Doobie Brother is that the people involved always were great people," McDonald says. "Tommy's been a guy I've admired very much—and even better liked very much as a person—for many years now."
