Two-time Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum-selling artist LeAnn Rimes will celebrate Record Store Day with an exclusive, limited vinyl pressing of a new live album, Rimes: Live at Gruene Hall.
Rimes: Live at Gruene Hall will feature a collection of ten live performances celebrating Rimes’ love for all music, ranging from rock and pop to soul, country, gospel and blues. The album finds Rimes performing stripped-down versions of songs like Stevie Ray Vaughn’s “Pray and Joy” and Willie Nelson’s “Always On My Mind,” live from what a press release calls “the oldest continually run dance hall in Texas.”
“There is a moment when performing live when all you need to have is a great PA, a great band, a great song for a beautiful connection to happen with a wonderful audience. That is what I always wanted to capture in a live record and what better way share it than a vinyl in honor of Record Store Day,” says Rimes. “Growing up, and even to this day, I love going into a record store, flipping through records and listening to the magic that comes through. There is an organic love affair in doing that and we need to celebrate the indie record stores.”
The limited release will be available on Record Store Day, April 13, and can be purchased at select record stores around the country. Fans can find their nearest participating store to check for availability. Rimes will be making a special appearance at a hand-picked record store of her choosing to meet fans and sign autographs on the big day.
To help kick off the launch of the new project, she will also be hosting three different shows at the historic Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, Texas, this weekend, Feb. 15-17. Each show will be unique, and will celebrate multiple genres.
