LeAnn Rimes will release her new single, “Crazy Women,” digitally on December 21st. “Crazy Women” will be a special bonus track on Rimes’ upcoming album, Lady and Gentlemen, slated for release early next year on Curb Records. For her latest album, Rimes reinterprets classic country songs by Waylon Jennings, George Jones and Merle Haggard, among others.
“This album was born out of when I first fell in love with country music and I realized that almost all of my favorite songs were sung by men,” says Rimes. “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.”
This summer, Rimes released her remake of John Anderson’s “Swingin’,” one of her favorite songs as a child, giving fans a preview of what’s to come. Lady and Gentlemen will also feature a remake of Rimes’ signature song, “Blue,” 15 years after its original release. “I have been performing the song for years, it’s become a classic that people love just as much as I do, so it felt natural to remake the song for this album that covers country classics,” Rimes explains.
The album was executive produced by Vince Gill, Darrell Brown (Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts) and Rimes. Information on Rimes, including upcoming tour dates, is available here.
