LeAnn Rimes is no stranger to releasing country albums. Over the course of her career, LeAnn Rimes has released thirteen albums since the age of thirteen. The newest addition to her discography, “Lady & Gentlemen,” is an album compiled of songs that are covers of her favorite male country artists. LeAnn is often compared to the vocal styles of her inspirations such as Reba McEntire and Barbra Streisand.

The album begins with the hit, “Swingin’,” originally by John Anderson; a song Rimes first covered in June 2010 at the Country Music Awards. It is a perfect country swing song that makes the listener feel the music.

But as for the rest of the album, the tone turns somber, focusing on themes of break-ups and wrong-doings. In the second song, “Wasted Days and Wasted Nights,” Rimes channels the voice of the late Patsy Cline, creating a hallowing sensation that invites listeners to think of their own wasted days and wasted nights.

This is a beautiful album for people who enjoy the sound of country music from the days of Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash. This album fits into the puzzle of Rimes’ discography very well, mostly into her earlier works, with songs that mainly depend upon vocals rather than instruments or synthetic sounds. “Lady & Gentlemen” is a great stepping stone in LeAnn’s career, and proves she hasn’t forgotten her roots.
