LeAnn Rimes, Lady & Gentlemen Tracklist Revealed

19 Sep

After being delayed for a year, LeAnn Rimes’ new covers album Lady & Gentlemen will finally hit stores on September 27.  With this 14-song set, Rimes will offer her own re-interpretations of classic country songs originally recorded by male artists.  The album will also include the original song and current single “Give,” as well as a re-recorded version of her classic 1996 debut single “Blue.”

Fans can listen to the album online 48 Hours in advance of release at, and album is now available for pre-order on iTunes

“This album was born out of the memories of when I first fell in love with country music and in reflecting, I realized that almost all of my favorite country songs from back then were sung by men,” says LeAnn of the album. “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.”

    I’m interested to hear her interpretation of”16 Tons”.:) I’m glad she’s recording a Vince song, since Vince is the producer, but I’ll reserve judgment of what I think of it until I hear it. She’s certainly vocally capable. I’m just hoping she makes a twangy weeper and not a pop song.

    Looking forward to hearing her versions, nice to see a scattered selection of songs from various eras. Also glad that her two great singles (“Women” and “Give”) are also tracks.

    I’ll also be curious to see, as a whole, whether she goes for a more traditional style, or glosses the songs over with a modern pop sheen. “Swingin'” seemed to suggest the former, though “Give” was pretty pop-friendly. I’m excited to hear her version of “Rose Colored Glasses” myself, having always loved that classic John Conlee hit.

    I hated her version of Swinging so much I can’t muster up a lot of enthusiasm for this.

    Just wanted to say the album is definitely more traditional leaning and you guys can here clips of the songs on iTunes while waiting for the album. Also, I must say I have been more excited for this album than any other album, except maybe Matraca Berg’s The Dreaming Fields. (Sorry Miranda Four the Record and Pistol Annies Hell on Heels)

    Cool, Gator! I didn’t know that, but… iTunes, here I come! And I have to say, I absolutely adore her version of “Swingin.'” At any rate, it suggests that she’ll be putting a lot of personal style into these tunes.

    A great singer offers her version of great songs I’m sure we’ll all hear songs we love and songs we don’t but you have to give it to the girl this is a great album with vocals to die for.
