June 13th 2013 – Grammy and World Music Award winning superstar LeAnn Rimes has spent the last month promoting her new critically acclaimed project coast-to-coast and the media blitz paid off. Her brand new album SPITFIRE debuted at number nine on Billboard’s Top Country Album chart. The album has been lauded from outlets across the country with such reviews as:
“Best country record of the year, not to mention the album of her career” - The Hollywood Reporter
“…Represents the boldest steps – in both music and lyrics – of her career” – The New York Times
“Spitfire has an immediacy and force that I haven’t heard from her in years” – CMT
“Four stars out of four; as fine and true as any country album released this year” – USA Today
In the weeks leading up to her album release, Rimes spent several days in Nashville chatting about her new collection with Music City journalists, video outlets CMT and GAC, as well as syndicated talk show hosts Crook & Chase. Topping off her week in the country music capitol, Rimes performed two new songs from SPITFIRE at the famed Grand Ole Opry.
Keeping up the pace, Rimes then headed to LA for release week where she performed on The Tonight Show, visited with Chelsea Handler on Chelsea Lately, performed on EXTRA and was featured on OMG Insider, among others. Next up was New York where Rimes performed on GMA, FOX News, The View and The Wendy Williams Show.
Although the media tour has come to an end, there are still several opportunities to catch LeAnn. Her interview with Perez Hilton, as well as an acoustic performance, will be an upcoming feature on perezhilton.com. Rimes will also perform on The Talk on July 15, 2013 and be a guest on E! Fashion Police on August 2, 2013. Rounding out her confirmed upcoming appearances, Rimes will also be featured on ET Canada.
