It seems like LeAnn Rimes has been known for more than just her singing abilities the last several years. I haven’t really followed much since her songs have fallen off the charts.
However, she’s still one of my favorite country singers of all time. There is just hardly a better voice and talent in country music history.
When she first came out in 1996 it was like something completely different. And that year and into the next couple years I don’t know if acts sold more than LeAnn. It was pretty crazy.
LeAnn has a new Christmas album out this year and when she has new music out I will always listen.
Celebrate Me Home – LeAnn Rimes
She’s still got it.
Who else has a voice like that?
The country twang is still there and LeAnn always had that powerhouse vocal that worked just as well in any genre. She could be pop, soul, whatever. I think she fits in best in country, but this song has elements of both and in the end it’s a great Christmas song.
There is always emotion in what LeAnn sings. And it’s pretty cool to have Gavin Degraw on this one. He is another unique talent. Not a huge superstar, but he has been around for more than a decade and has always been a little bit of a guy that’s hard to define.
I think that’s one area where these two fit so well together. They’re just on the edge of their genres and it works well for them.
Pretty Christmas song. I could easily see this one playing in the background in many homes this season.
