Leann Rimes Lady & Gentlemen 2LP
Grammy Award-Winning, Multi-Platinum Artist LeAnn Rimes Breathes New Life Into Country Classics Originally Performed By Male Recording Artists!
Lady & Gentlemen is a creative concept album co-produced by LeAnn Rimes, country
superstar Vince Gill and successful writer, Darrell Brown. It features
country classic songs by the likes of George Jones, Merle Haggard and Waylon
Jennings, all sung from a modern female's perspective. Says LeAnn, "This
album was born out of the memories of when I first fell in love with country
music and in reflecting, I realized that almost all of my favorite country songs
from back then were sung by men. I am honored to take a step back in time
and sing these songs from a woman's perspective and hopefully help reintroduce
them to a new audience." The album features the Grammy Award nominated song "Swingin'"
(Best Female Country Vocal Performance) along with the moving original singles,
"Give," "Crazy Women" and an anniversary edition of "Blue" as bonus tracks.
"'Give' is a powerful song with a message that I believe needs to be shared
with the world, especially in these times of today. I'm so honored to sing this
song and help spread that message," says LeAnn. As a special thank you to
fans, Rimes has remade her signature song "Blue", 15 years after it's original
release, for this album.
"Once you've heard LeAnn Rimes sing her cover versions of legendary hits by
Merle Haggard, George Jones and Waylon Jennings, you may find a whole new way to
love those songs...
"Rimes called the new album 'a covers record with a little twist, because it's
all songs by men with my female perspective on them' -- not to mention her
powerful pipes and her charming presence." - Alison Bonaguro, CMT.com,
LeAnn Rimes has sold more than 40 million albums, has won two Grammy Awards,
three Academy of Country Music Awards and 12 Billboard Music Awards. She is the
youngest recipient of a Grammy Award, and was the first country recording artist
to win in the "Best New Artist" category.
