Country artists think long and hard about the cover songs they add to their shows, and Sara Evans was no different with her live version of John Mayer’s song, “Say.”

Sara recently debuted her stunning arrangement of the song during the encore of one of her shows, and Rare Country has the video of that performance.

Since she’s a big fan of John Mayer, Sara had been looking to cover one of his songs for a while now. The emotional message of “Say” also rang true for the country star.

“I think that song is so brilliant because the lyrics are kind of simple — yet they say so much,” she tells Rare Country. “We all have at least one relationship that is strained and if something happened, you know you would regret not telling that person how you really felt.”
