Maybe LeAnn Rimes Would Fill More Concert Halls if She'd Stop Singing About Cheating, Huh?

3/23/2014 12:00 PM PDT, by Sarah Taylor
So guess who played a show in Texas last night, and who also didn't really have much in the way of stellar attendance? Well, naturally it wasn't Miley Cyrus, because unlike her personal style and personal photos, her shows are catching like wildfire, so it was LeAnn Rimes ... who's basically the antitheses of Miley there. 

LeAnn just played in Austin, and an online review reads that the venue wasn't even 60% full. What happened? She allegedly sang well -- and nobody's disputing the fact that this woman can sing, because she definitely can -- but here's the thing: though LeAnn's stage presence is up to par, and I know from personal experience that she can work a crowd, LeAnn is likely not generating a massive crowd because let's be honest -- there aren't a whole lot of people keen on listening to a woman (who was at one time "the other woman") sing songs about being the other woman, and then the wife. 

No, LeAnn's "Spitfire," though it sold OK, is no masterpiece. It's not even close to being anything more than a reason to travel around the country, singing new material.

If LeAnn can't wake up and see that she's better off sticking to what she's good at -- singing tracks for albums, avoiding tours, and stopping the onslaught of Eddie Cibrian PDA -- then she really hasn't learned too much after all.

Girl, you can sing, but it's time to just leave this "Spitfire" business alone, OK?

So many country songs are about cheating though - cheating songs are classic country. I love Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris - "Ashes in the Morning" & Lee Ann Womack - "More Where That Came From" or Sugarland - "Stay." Rimes's "Borrowed" is pretty much up there with those - great track. Also I think Randy Travis had an old song called "Reasons I Cheat."

Think she's not as popular anymore b/c of her tabloid/twitter antics and because country music is dominated by pop music now anyway. At least she's still touring and making a go of it.

I love LeAnn and her voice. She is truly a sweet, sweet person.

Oh, Gwen, how think she's a "sweet, sweet person." Try being on the other side. Try having some woman calling your children HER babies, paying for your former friends to go on fancy vacations and turn against you for money, go to the press and say evil things about you. Then there's suing a special ed teacher that had a private twitter acct...that Rimes had "spies" go into, then paid for them to come to LA, give out her phone number and Rimes called her, attacking her for not liking her...the woman recorded it so Rimes sued, even though she was on speaker phone in a public diner and Rimes CALLED HER. She let the woman lose thousands of dollars, damaged her reputation, all because she didn't like LeAnn Rimes. Ain't that "sweet"? Yeah. All the comments in the world won't change what most of us already see. But, have fun trying.
