Sara Evans to Perform on 'Dancing With the Stars' Tour

Country singer Sara Evans, who abruptly dropped out of "Dancing With the Stars" in October, will join the ABC reality show's road tour, promoters said Thursday.

Also on board will be talk show host Jerry Springer, they said. Other celebrities include Harry Hamlin, Drew Lachey, Joey Lawrence, Joey McIntyre and Lisa Rinna, along with professional dance partners.

Springer plans to perform in five cities, including his hometown of Cincinnati. Evans will perform only in Nashville, on Jan. 21.

"I can't wait to see everyone again and be a part of the show," Evans said in a statement released by promoter AEG Live. "Hopefully there will be some down time so I can take them to some of my favorite places in Nashville."

Springer said last week he was quitting his syndicated radio show after two years, in part because of new work generated by his appearance on the popular "Dancing With the Stars."

After Evans dropped out of the show, she filed for divorce from husband Craig Schelske. Proceedings continue in Williamson County, Tenn., where she lives, with back-and-forth allegations of adultery and other inappropriate behavior.

Evans made her recording debut in 1997, and her 2000 album "Born to Fly" went double platinum. Her hits include "Perfect," "Suds in the Bucket" and "Real Fine Place to Start."
