Having "Family" ready to release, LeAnn Rimes will show how much 'personal' she gets on this piece at CMA Music Fest.
For what could have been branded the most consistent musician, LeAnn Rimes is back promoting her new album with first single "Nothin' Better to Do" already ruling CMT Top Twenty Countdown. The song, along with her other materials from the new album will debut at CMA Music Festival on June 6 in Nashville.
Off all her previous albums, Rimes decides to get 'personal' on the new one. Aptly titled, "Family" is an album with all tracks getting either her full writing or part of writing. The first single for example was co-written with her husband Dean Sheremet and Darrell Brown. She said, "We wrote this song as if from my alter ego, a girl who never got out of that small town. Now, all that's left to do is cause a little trouble and have some fun!"
Rimes also got her hands on the direction of the first single's video. Alongside David McClister, she pictures a woman back in the 'Chicago' era who is jailed for a wrong doing.
Why "Family"? She answered, "I literally grew up in the spotlight over the last 12 years and in that time, all of my fans and gracious supporters have become like my family. This album is a thank you to everyone, as none of this would be possible without them."
"Family" is released on her 25th birthday on August 28 via Curb Records.
