– LeAnn Rimes will release her new single Crazy Women
digitally on Dec. 21.
The song is being released as a special bonus track to Rimes' upcoming new CD, "Lady and Gentleman," due out early next year on Curb Records. Rimes reinterprets classic songs by such country greats as Waylon Jennings, George Jones and Merle Haggard. Singing them from a woman's perspective, each song was rearranged and reinterpreted by Rimes with the album executive produced by Vince Gill, Darrell Brown (Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts) and Rimes.
"This album was born out of when I first fell in love with country music, and I realized that almost all of my favorite songs were sung by men," said Rimes. "I am honored to take a step back in time and sing these songs from a woman's perspective and hopefully help reintroduce them to a new audience."
Rimes said the new single was "such a fun song to sing along and laugh with. After completing this album of songs by some of the most infamous men in country music to drive women crazy in love, I thought this song was a perfect addition to the album."
Rimes remade her signature song Blue15 years after it was released to be a part of "Lady and Gentlemen. ""I have been performing the song for years, it's become a classic that people love just as much as I do, so it felt natural to remake the song for this album that covers country classics," said Rimes. This past summer, Rime released her remake of one of her favorite songs from growing up, the 1983 John Anderson hit, Swingin'.

CD reviews for LeAnn Rimes
LeAnn Rimes' "Remnants" album sounds inspired by contemporary times. The title track takes on almost an apocalyptic quality. Lyrically, a lot of these songs - many of which Rimes had a hand in writing - address a dire need for love. We do live in a world where love oftentimes seems to be in short supply. Therefore, three of these songs have "love" in their titles, with one repeating the word three times for good measure.

LeAnn Rimes hasn't always been the most consistent album maker over the years, but there's no questioning the quality of her singing. Here gospel-y version of "Silent Night" on this Christmas EP, "One Christmas: Chapter," is truly a thing of beauty. Then when she sings a slow, soulful "Blue Christmas," which features that beautiful yodel in her voice, it should remind you of that wonderful Patsy Cline quality in her early recordings. ...
Say what you will about the vocal chops of today's leading ladies of country - Miranda Lambert, Faith Hill or Martina McBride chief among them - but LeAnn Rimes is hands down, no doubt about it the best female vocalist in country music today.
And it will be bordering on a criminal act - thievery of the first order - if she doesn't sweep every award country music has to offer with her latest. For most of the bulk of the new millennium every Rimes album has been a treat. ...
