    I do not recall hype on any other Christmas albums, except the fund raiser albums like A Very Special Christmas from years ago. That one is old but I still love it. LOL

    The only big deal Christmas album in recent memory was Mariah Carey's. That one song All I Want for Christmas is like the biggest selling Christmas something or other ever.

    I think Leann is an unlikable twit, but I love xmas music. I'll sample it and buy it if I like anything.

    Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas song is the only Christmas music I've ever owned. It and a hula hoop were white elephant gifts about 15 years ago. We continued the party after work and somehow they both ended up in the bar being played/played with. A coworker had such a good time she didn't realize she puked out her false uppers until after she flushed. Good times. Anyway, this is the third album Leann released in less than one year. Why? They don't sell at all. It's almost as if she does it just to have something to talk (or tweet) about.

Those things may well have played a large part in her amazing success, but I believe the greatest contribution is that she works hard. She writes for herself and others. She shows up for work and gives 110% to the people who have paid to see her sing. She expresses gratitude and shows that she is not taking any of this for granted and that she realizes that she must continue to work hard.

    Celebrating the Holiday with LeAnn Rimes


    JOEY AMATO NOVEMBER 3, 2014 MUSIC
    For nearly the past twenty years, LeAnn Rimes has been a household name in the entertainment industry. Her career began at age thirteen with her debut cd, Blue, containing the smash hit of the same title. After multiple other hits from the same record, Blue achieved six times multi-platinum status from the Recording Industry Association of America, a feat rarely accomplished by today’s top selling artists.
    Rimes’ career has not been completely smooth sailing from her initial success. She faced legal battles through contractual disputes and her personal life became the topic of heavy media scrutiny. However, Rimes has prevailed over her challenges and has proven her music to be the motivation for continued success as seen through multiple albums, books, philanthropy, and even a VH1 reality show with her husband, Eddie Cibrian, titled LeAnn and Eddie.

    Rimes’ fans can enjoy new holiday music that was recently released on October 28, a decade since her most recent holiday collection. One Christmas- Chapter 1 features six of Rimes’ favorite holiday tracks previously recorded by other artists. We recently spoke with Rimes about the new music, new tour, and life after her reality television show.


    One Christmas- Chapter 1
    , which as implied by the title and confirmed by Rimes, is just the first installment of her holiday music project with two subsequent collections coming in 2015 and 2016. “These are songs I feel myself gravitating towards during the holiday season. It was music that I wanted to pull that was a little bit different than what most people would do,” Rimes says of music on her new EP.


    One of the tracks fans will enjoy is “Hard Candy Christmas,” originally written by Carol Hall and performed by Dolly Parton in the musical The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. “Maybe if we get around Nashville in the next few years, Dolly will have to pop in [at a concert],” Rimes jokes. “I have always wanted to sing with just myself and a steel guitar. Paul Franklin is absolutely incredible and probably the only person I would ever do something like that with.” Rimes went into the studio, turned down all of the lights, and sang the emotional tune under the glow of Christmas lights. “I was crying half-way through,” Rimes adds, “and was like ‘we have to stop…hold on a minute!’”

    Rimes will hit the road in December bringing her new Christmas music to fans across the United States but she wanted to the make the announcement unique. To announce the tour, she recruited some of her elf friends, including two men from the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles and her assistant, Kiki, to participate in the video while she sang the Christmas tour announcement on the beach in July while wearing a parka over a bikini. In the video, Rimes sings that there will be something “really, really special in New York City” so we, of course, asked if she would tell us what the big secret is and nearly succeeded. Rimes laughs, “You almost could have caught me though, I was like ‘wait a minute, have they announced that yet?’ No, not yet! So I can’t talk about it!” Rimes did release a ‘sequel’ to the first announcement of the tour just before Halloween that serves as a tour reminder featuring the now famous elves…but in a Halloween theme. Rimes will also bring along rising star Levi Hummon on the tour. “He is such a great, young talent, so we are excited to have him out on the tour,” Rimes adds.

    Season one of Rimes’ reality show on VH1, LeAnn and Eddie, recently concluded with its eighth and final episode. When asked about a season two, Rimes is keeping that open ended. “We had a lot of fun working together but I think for now, since I am so busy with music stuff and touring, it would be hard to fit in [season two], but we might revisit that again in the future.”

    Rimes says that she learned a lot about the whole process of putting a television show together by watching her husband, actor Eddie Cibrian who has been seen in Sunset Beach and CSI: Miami among other projects, contribute to the production side of the show while she just “went to work and played.”

    Although Rimes spends most of her time in Los Angeles, she still takes frequent trips to Nashville for work and to visit family. She tries to fit in a few extra days to take her stepsons out to her father’s farm so they can ride horses and four-wheelers, activities not as common where she lives in Los Angeles.

    Rimes was with Curb Records for twenty years, just recently ending her contract in December. “I almost rushed into something and I am glad I didn’t,” Rimes says as she discusses where she is musically at this point in her career. “I have been taking my time to figure out what that next step is for me musically.” She notes that her music will always be from an honest place and will have her roots involved, but at this moment, she is being creative in her writing to figure out what her next sound will be in what Rimes calls her “rebirth.”
    As for country music’s current state, Rimes says she cannot be incredibly positive about it. “I miss old school country music a lot. I miss the stories and the humanity of it. Not everything was about a truck, a six-pack, and a dirt road,” Rimes says as she mentions that country radio seems to just be the same twelve songs over and over. The lack of women today in country music has, as Rimes put it, contributed to the “narrowing down” of country music so much to become another format that is now pop music. Stale is how Rimes describes the genre and hopes that something or someone comes along soon to break the trend. “There used to be something to me that separated [country music] from every other genre and it doesn’t anymore,” Rimes says, “so, that saddens me.”

    Rimes has consistently been a major ally in supporting the LGBT community, a slowly growing but still rare tendency for country music stars. “I think of it as everyone’s human and everyone just deserves the same right to love, marry, and be with the people they want to be with,” says Rimes. “I have never seen a division in my mind in any way … but it’s sad that a lot of people feel like they have to not say anything or hold back their true feelings out of fear.” Some country music stars feel like their career may suffer if they take a stand that some people may not agree with. Rimes adds that her support has always been from her heart and simply “human to human.”

    LeAnn Rimes is nowhere near slowing down her career. As she embarks on her Christmas tour in December, fans can continue to expect more great music from Rimes in the near future as she works on new projects. With multiple endeavors, such as her reality show, complete, Rimes can resume her efforts in breaking down barriers in music and paving her own route.

    Offensive interview. She hasn't contributed anything of value to country music in how long? And she only half-ass pretends to be interested in it because she's got 2 decades of failed attempts to break into pop. The desperate bitch is just bitter that she's not included in country's Cool Kids & if she was, she'd be interviewing every 5 minutes talking about all the fresh innovative music out there and what a great time it is to be a country artist blah blah blah. LeAnn, please google the term SOUR GRAPES and ABSORB IT.

    I'm still crazy about Wham's Last Christmas. One of the best pop Xmas songs ever.

    On a funny CMA note- some Wewe hater tweeted to an up and coming country singer Rachel Holder it was nice to see her at the CMA's last night and of course @leann in her tweet. Rachel happens to be managed by Wilbur Rimes of all people. She was at CMAs last night- not Wewe. So Wewe took offense to the hater tweeting this Rachel and replied back something stoopid like my dad is awesome but this person tweeting you is crazy. Wtf? Not even something inspirational or supportive just a cunty response. This poor girl got in the midle of a rambling thread of haters and she tries to respond to Wewe - we missed you last night at the CMAs when are you back in Nashville? Of course Wewe didn't respond. So bizarre. Wouldn't you think Wilbur was there? Wouldn't he try and meet up with his daughter? Sorry I can't post the tweets I have a lame outdated iPad.

    The only Christmas album that matters. I know its Phil Spector but my god when Darlene Love wails 'Baby Please Come Home' its magic.

    Seriously! Ediot apparently didn't go on this multiple-day trip to Nashville, so she's doing what she does every.single.time....tweeting that she's "sick." She's totally working on getting out of the commitment to fly home and check on him.

    Well, if you can score a good xmas hit like Wham 'Last Christmas' or Mariah Carey 'All I want..', that's money in the bank for years to come. A nice little royalty check every December, for the song writer anyway. Maybe that's why Leann is putting out 3 xmas EPs and not 1 xmas LP to tripple her odds of getting a good xmas hit.

    But she didn't write any of her songs (did she?) so even if they become Xmas classics she won't make a ton of money from them. Not as much as the songwriter anyway.

    ^^ I wondered same thing faithanne. Did she ever write anything, even back when she had a career? Thought others wrote her songs. I thought writers went off into quiet places to work...couldn't see her shutting up long enough to string anything sensible together because the sentences of crap she spews for interviews is terrible.

    I thought she co-wrote some of the songs, but that was on her old xmas album, not the new ep. I guess none of the many creative meetings with Darrell have resulted in a new song yet.

    Not ever gonna happen. LeAnn has dug herself too deep into this pit to ever get out. She could out-Humanitarian at this point and people would still look at her and think that she's a home wrecking whore with nostrils like a cave system. And for that I am truly grateful because it keeps us in snark.

She's making out this is some kind of high art shit. We listen to Xmas songs for about 2 hours on Xmas morning and that's it.
    They aren't really a big thing here. Mostly you either get a silly novelty song or there's an internet campaign to get a rock track to number one instead of the latest soon-to-be-forgotten X-Factor winner. Idunno is right, the last big Christmas song was Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas and you still can't go anywhere without hearing it at Christmas.
