Taking participation on Pasadena's 117th Rose Parade held on January 2, LeAnn Rimes boldly faced the threatening sky which was about to pour heavy rain when singing her new single, "Something's Gotta Give." Fortunately, everything turned out to run well indeed for the rain did not come down until she finished her performance. "It was fun to brave the storm with them and with all the fans who weren't going to let anything get in the way of their being at the 2006 Rose Parade," she remarked.
Scheduled to sing the National Anthem at the Rose Bowl championship game on January 4, the lovely singer also revealed her delight upon being involved in the event. "It meant so much to me to be a part of parade history... The parade organizers are some of the kindest, most dedicated and professional people I have ever worked with," she commented earnestly.
