LeAnn Rimes Is On A Restorative Journey to Joy

Creating Is Healing

LeAnn Rimes has had a career that spans 26 years. Hard to imagine since she just turned 40 last August, but Rimes shot to country music stardom at the ripe old age of 14 with the massive hit, "Blue." She captured an entire nation with that colossal voice and drew comparisons to the incomparable Patsy Cline. That was in 1996 and now, 26 years later, Rimes continues to wow us with her latest album, god's work

LeAnn explains, "It's been an in-depth journey of turning inward. Exploring myself and the bigger questions of life. One of a lot of contemplation and connection with something greater than me. When I create a record, I'm always amazed at the creation process. It's mind-blowing to find inspiration through life. If we choose to be open to what wants to come through us as creators, we get to have this experience of being connected to the universe. It's a beautiful dance. If you keep creating, the whole project eventually reveals itself." 

Her 19th album was three years in the making. The 12-track record features an eclectic group of accomplished artists, including Ziggy Marley, Mickey Guyton, Aloe Blacc, Ben Harper, Ledisi, Sheila E., Robert Randolph, Táta Vega, and more, that all contribute to the genre-bending sounds featured throughout. Says Rimes, "This album dives in to the totality of the emotional landscape. Life had to happen as it did in order for the record to come to be."

Rimes also begins “Joy: The Holiday Tour,” kicking off December 2nd and running through December 18th. Spanning six cities across the country, the tour lands at Nashville's Mother Church, The Ryman on December 10th. Rimes says, "I last played at the Ryman in 2019, so it's been a moment. I love playing there. It's a magical place."  Fans can expect festive songs mixed with some of Rimes’ greatest hits and new releases off god’s work. Adds Rimes, "god's work works really well for the season, so I'm excited to play songs from the album, a few hits and some holiday music."

Does she have a favorite song she likes to perform? Rimes responds, "Performing 'The Wild' {from the new album} was an incredible experience. That song is so powerful and there's a lot of rage and female empowerment in that song. It's so primal. It was a new level of expression for me."

In addition to her music, Rimes has both a blog, Soul of EverLe and a podcast, Wholly Human. Both creative endeavors were born of LeAnn's desire to connect with people and the universe on a deeper level and differently than through her music. LeAnn explains, "Everything I'm releasing now is restorative and very healing. Wholly Human as a creative project also played in to this record. Things I was discovering help me create what I want to write about. It allows me to get curious and talk about things that are important to me like my spirituality, and the physical and emotional components of the human experience."
