NASHVILLE, TN (April 29, 2013) – Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter LeAnn Rimes is releasing her new album, SPITFIRE,
on June 4, 2013. Rimes, who co-wrote nine of the songs on her newest
offering, says “This album is a peek into my world; who I am, what I’ve
gone through, what my emotions are.  It’s an intimate conversation
between me and whoever’s listening.  I hope I’m saying things that are
hard for others to express.  It certainly took me a lot of work to get
to this point. And it’s still easier to sing these thoughts than it is
to say them out loud.  The intimacy in my music is just beginning.”

“Curb Records is receiving global reviews for LeAnn’s brilliant
album, Spitfire.  Her performances with Rob Thomas (Matchbox 20), Jeff
Beck, Alison Krauss and Dan Tyminski are amazing and a great
representation of LeAnn’s ability as an artist and songwriter, says Curb
Records Chairman, Mike Curb.  “LeAnn and producer Darrell Brown have
created a very special musical adventure that is delivered straight from
LeAnn’s heart.  We’ve always known she is a great singer.  This album
simply proves outright that LeAnn is a great, multi-faceted artist.”

SPITFIRE is co-produced by Darrell Brown, LeAnn’s longtime
friend, whom she calls her “writing soul mate”. Rimes speaks of this
album as a “journey” and says there were several memorable moments along
the way from having multi-Grammy award-winning engineer, Al Schmitt
(Ray Charles, Natalie Cole, Norah Jones) mix several songs to having
Alison Krauss and Dan Tyminsky sing background vocals on “What Have I
Done?”.  After ten years of trying to write or record with Rob Thomas,
the planets aligned as Rob added an undeniable groove to “Gasoline and
Matches”, which also features the legendary signature guitar styling’s
of Jeff Beck, whom LeAnn previously worked with on a Barbra Streisand
tribute at the Grammys to benefit MusiCares.

“SPITFIRE covers a range of emotions that I’ve experienced in my
lifetime, from anger to love, from frustrations to letting go”, says
Rimes.  “Darrell and I talked about telling that story in chronological
order, but that didn’t work sonically, so he said, ‘It’s the truth…in no
particular order.’ And isn’t that what life is about?”

The physical CD will launch exclusively at Walmart and is currently available for pre-order at http://bit.ly/Spitfire1
