– Dressed in a skimpy black bikini and a parka sitting on a beach surrounded by three elves, LeAnn Rimes took to YouTube
to announce the "ONE Christmas" tour and the release of a six-song EP.
Rimes sits on the beach in the humorous video, singing over the action to announce the cities and a special event in New York City, which was not disclosed.
This is the first chapter of three Christmas albums Rimes plans to release over consecutive holiday seasons. "ONE Christmas - chapter 2" will be released in 2015 with "ONE Christmas - chapter 3" in 2016.
"I love everything about the holidays," said Rimes, "and want to share the magic and joy of the season with my fans. I look forward to playing some of my favorite Christmas classics for music lovers in an intimate, cozy setting."
The six song EP is produced by Rimes and Darrell Brown and includes:
1. Silent Night Holy Night
2. I Want A Hippopotamus for Christmas
3. Blue Christmas
4. Someday at Christmas
5. Hard Candy Christmas
