LeAnn Rimes Sets New Concept Album Release

(ID) LeAnn Rimes new album Lady & Gentlemen is set to be released on September 27, 2011 and is said to breath new life into country classics originally performed by male recording artists by her reinterpreting each song.

LeAnn conceived of this concept album in which she covers country greats such as Waylon Jennings, George Jones and Merle Haggard, among others as an opportunity to give a woman's perspective for each song. The entire album has been rearranged and reinterpreted by LeAnn. 20-time Grammy Award-winner Vince Gill, Darrell Brown (Keith Urban, Rascall Flatts) and LeAnn Rimes executive produced the album. Other producers on the album include Justin Niebank and John Hobbs.

"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," says LeAnn of the album. "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."

As a special thank you to fans for all of their support, they can listen to album before anyone else at www.LeAnnRimesWorld.com where it will be streaming online 48 hours prior to release. Fans can also now pre-order the album on iTunes and pick up an autographed vinyl and limited edition of the CD. LeAnn will be hosting a special live chat and Q&A session with fans on September 27.
