Remember When Sara Evans and Adam Levine Covered a Stevie Nicks Song?

Subscribe to 95.3 The Bear on

Sara Evans and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine might not outwardly seem like a musical match made in heaven, but they teamed up for a very convincing performance of a classic Stevie Nicks song on Jan. 29, 2008.

Evans paired up with Maroon 5 for an episode of CMT Crossroads, a show that matches country singers and rock stars for sometimes unlikely collaborations. Evans’s most recent album at the time was Real Fine Place from 2005, while Maroon 5 were riding high on the smash success of their breakthrough Songs About Jane album.

The episode included Levine and Evans blending their voices for several of her hits, including the Radney Foster composition “A Real Fine Place to Start” and “I Could Not Ask for More,” along with Maroon 5’s “She Will Be Loved.” But one of the highlights was undoubtedly their rendition of Stevie Nicks’ hit “Leather and Lace,” from her 1981 album Bella Donna.

Evans sang Nicks’ part, employing a slightly grittier side to her voice than her own material usually draws on, while Levine voiced Don Henley‘s parts from the duet, which reached No. 6 in the Billboard Hot 100 and has gone on to become a classic, receiving airplay on both classic rock and adult contemporary stations.

Evans later called the collaboration one of her 10 favorite duets, telling Rolling Stone, “I did a CMT Crossroads episode with Maroon 5, and I sang that song with Adam Levine. We really did have great chemistry.”
