What Rimes With Christmas, LeAnn Of Course!

Despite her relative youth country/pop artist LeAnn Rimes has amassed a catalogue of music releases (and picked up a Grammy) that would be an impressive achievement from someone twice her age. This was probably helped by the fact that she started out so young with her debut album, 1996's 'Blue', appearing when she was just 14 years old. Her Christmas journey began to take shape from an early age when she played the starring role in a production of 'A Christmas Carol' at her local theatre. And her acting ability landed her the main character role in a 1997 TV movie called 'Holiday In Your Heart' which was set at Christmas and included 8 songs performed by LeAnn including the emotive but lively Christmas number 'Put A Little Holiday In Your Heart'. By 2003 LeAnn had released her 'Greatest Hits' compilation and one of the bonus tracks was her faithful interpretation of the age old carol 'O Holy Night'.

It would be 2004 before Rimes decided to go the whole hog and record a Christmas album (which included the aforementioned 'O Holy Night', the only carol on the record) and on 'What A Wonderful World' she pulled out all the stops to give her fans a festive experience to remember. The lead single 'Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree' signalled the jazzy big band fun times that were present throughout the album and though there were plenty more redecorated standards Rimes also contributed on songwriting duties for a trio of commendable new songs 'Miss You Like Christmas', 'Just Love Me' and 'A Different Kind of Christmas'. The album's title track ‘What A Wonderful Life’ has somehow slipped into Christmas rotation which is a little odd but in LeAnn's hands it hardly feels out of place amongst the tinsel and mulled wine. While the album is for the most part a joyous celebration of the season one of the original numbers 'A Different Kind of Christmas' does provide the album with its tear jerking moment, it is wonderfully written and ever so tender.

LeAnn's 10-track Christmas album was bolstered by a bonus track in certain territories (such as the UK and Japan) as well as on a limited release that was exclusively sold at Target Stores in the US. 'Santa Baby' may still be all about Eartha Kitt's early fifties version but LeAnn put something unique into proceedings, so much so that the song was eventually widely released as a single for the 2010 Christmas market.

In 2006 LeAnn co-voiced in an animated TV movie called 'Holly Hobbie and Friends: Christmas Wishes' which was inevitably packed full of Christmas singing and caroling. LeAnn provided vocals on two numbers 'O Holy Night' and 'Twinkle in Her Eye'. The 2008 released 'Christmas Duets' was a most unusual of projects in that it twinned up a posthumous Elvis Presley (or to be more precise a recording of his singing) with a selection of female country greats. As odd as that sounds it turned out to be a winning formula with LeAnn's contribution 'Here Comes Santa Claus (Right Down Santa Claus Lane)' being among the many highlights.

Fans of Christmas and LeAnn are in for a big treat beginning Christmas 2014 as the first of three festive extravaganzas called ‘One Christmas: Chapter 1’ is due for release. This will be closely followed up by ‘One Christmas: Chapter 2’ and ‘One Christmas: Chapter 3’ the following two Decembers. 2014's iteration will be showcased via an 8-date tour around the U.S. where the country singer will have plenty opportunity to work through her bulging festive canon.
