LeAnn Rimes sings at MGM Grand at Foxwoods
LeAnn Rimes has had a bad time lately. She's apparently been so stressed out that she checked herself into a treatment center for anxiety.
Ever since she entered the soap-opera world of actor Eddie Cibrian and his "Real Housewives" former spouse Brandi (with an "i") Glanville, she's been tabloid fodder. She's a husband-stealer! She's anorexically thin! She's being cyberbullied! She's going to anxiety rehab!
What she should do is focus on her singing, not her now-husband and all the attendant drama. Rimes has one of the richest voices in country music, and she had quite a recording career, selling upwards of 37 million albums. She's enjoyed plenty of accolades since she started performing as a kid. Rimes, now 30, won her first Grammy back at age 14, making her the youngest artist to even nab a Grammy. Her recording of "How Do I Live" was the second longest charting song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Sounds as though she is, in fact, back working on her career. She's on a tour - which stops Friday at MGM Grand at Foxwoods - and has a new CD scheduled for release in the spring. Maybe it is comeback time, after all.
