LeAnn Rimes: From Redneck To PoshBy: Amanda Crum - August 19, 2014
LeAnn Rimes spoke recently on the extensive travels she’s made over the years with tours, and says that being able to visit so many different places has opened her mind and shaped her influences.
The country star described herself as a “mutt”, saying that all those influences have merged together; she’s still a country girl at heart but can fit in with high society at the drop of a hat.
“I have so much that I’ve been influenced by from travelling the world. I’m really kind of a mutt. When I get around my mum and my southern friends, I start to get an accent again. I can totally be redneck with the best of them, and I can be totally as posh as possible,” she said.
Rimes and husband Eddie Cibrian have been focused on their reality show recently, but she is scheduled to begin a new tour this week in Washington and had an incident over the weekend when her luggage was lost during a flight.
Both Rimes and Cibrian have said that their new show is meant to give fans a glimpse at a different side of them–a funny side–after so much drama in the media. The couple met on the set of a film while Cibrian was still married to Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville, and after news of their affair got out the tabloids went wild.
“We’re both a little dumbfounded by it. They broke the story [of our affair] back in the day, and it’s been a constant feeding frenzy — I guess we’re easy targets,” Rimes said.
The couple have been enjoying the success of their new show, which airs on VH1.
