Sara Evans released her first studio album in six years when she dropped “Stronger” back in May 2011. One of the singles on the CD is “My Heart Can’t Tell You No,” which she performed for the 2012 Academy of Country Music Awards Sunday night (April 1). What did you think?

If you were thinking the song rings a bell, it was a 1988 hit by Rod Stewart. We have to say – we don’t think Evans’ version quite measures up. The song doesn’t seem to lend itself to the higher-register female voice as well as it sounds in Stewart’s deeper, raspier voice.

But weigh in in our poll below – who sang it better, Rod Stewart or Sara Evans? We’ve posted video above of Stewart and we’ll post video of Evans just as soon as we have it.
