LeAnn Rimes: the story… so far tour

LeAnn Rimes is an international multi-platinum selling singer and ASCAP award-winning songwriter who has sold more than 48 million units globally, won 2 Grammy Awards, 12 Billboard Music Awards, 2 World Music Awards, 3 Academy of Country Music Awards, 2 Country Music Association Awards, and 1 Dove Award.

At 14, Rimes won “Best New Artist,” making her the youngest solo artist ever to take home a Grammy Award, and, at 15, she became the first country artist to win “Artist of the Year” at the Billboard Music Awards.

Out of the 42 singles she has released throughout her expansive career, LeAnn’s ballad “How Do I Live” holds the record as Billboard’s Hot 100 all-time #1 hit by a female artist and continues to rank #4 on Billboard’s “Greatest of All Time: Hot 100 Song.”  15 of her multi-genre singles are top-10 hits, including “Can’t Fight the Moonlight,” which went #1 in 11 countries.

In 2017, this acclaimed singer released her 16th studio (RCA UK/Thirty Tigers) album, Remnants, which debuted at # 4 on Billboard’s Independent Album Chart, peaked at #3 on iTunes overall charts in its first week, garnered two #1 Billboard Dance hits with “Long Live Love” and “LovE is LovE is LovE,” and one Top 5 hit with “Love Line.”

In the fall of 2018, Rimes revealed a new EP for her fans titled Re-Imagined that featured five new versions of some of her record-breaking hits, including an epic duet with music icon Stevie Nicks. Most recently, the Grammy-winning performer unveiled her first-ever LIVE recording as an exclusive vinyl release in honor of the 2019 Record Store Day titled “Rimes: Live at Gruene Hall,” where Rimes celebrated music of all genres.

In 2018, LeAnn Rimes also lit up television screens throughout the holiday season as she starred and served as an Executive Producer in Hallmark’s “It’s Christmas, Eve,” which earned the highest TV original movie debut to-date for the channel premiering to over 4.3 million viewers. In 2020, Rimes won season four of FOX’s The Masked Singer, with Entertainment Weekly stating that she delivered “…the most beautiful performance in the history of The Masked Singer.” In April of 2022, LeAnn headlined an episode of the iconic music series CMT Crossroads alongside Mickey Guyton, Carly Pearce, Ashley McBryde, and Brandy Clark, who helped commemorate Rimes’ career and recognize the path she blazed forward for women in all genres.

Passionate about using her voice to help heal the world, LeAnn Rimes was honored with the Ally of Equality Award by the Human Rights Campaign for her over 20 years of support of equal rights, the 2019 HOPE Award for Depression Advocacy, and 2009 ACM Humanitarian Award, among other recognitions.

Ms. Rimes continues to channel her voice in new ways, releasing CHANT: The Human & The Holy (EverLe Records / Thirty Tigers), which spent 5 weeks at #1 on iTunes New Age Chart, as well as her iHeartRadio mental health and wholeness podcast, Wholly Human, that brings her lifestyle blog, Soul of EverLe, to life. Now in its third season, Wholly Human previously reached #2 on iTunes Health & Fitness Chart, placed in the Top 35 overall for podcasts worldwide and was recently named as one of the 15 best mental health podcasts that educate and empower listeners by Good Housekeeping.

LeAnn is now celebrating her 25th anniversary as a recording artist, commemorating the release of her debut album Blue, and will release her next studio album, god’s work, on September 16th, 2022.
